    Farmall, that lawsuit could be only hearsay. I only know of it through word of mouth. Can’t beat the look of the old primary cover. Too bad they are not modifiable really either.

    New shoes mounted. Tank fab complete.

    Need some brake line/master cylinder advice. I’m running a single mini caliper on 10.5 rotor up front. I believe it’s a stock caliper. Does someone make a banjo bolt kit for the old caliper and brake master cylinder?

    Is there any other way to put the pvc pipe in the fork tubes other than having to fight the spring? Couldn’t for the life of me get the fork caps on haha so here it is without the PVC in them. Round 2 tonight.

    Mine is set up on a transmission jack right now. Both ends completely off the ground for ease of access.. And the fork springs don't even touch the caps. Pull them out with zero pressure on them.

    Maybe that's wrong and someone screwed with it? Or maybe you can just suspend the front end and make it easier?

    Yeah I had it off the ground when trying to put them in. The forks are completely rebuilt, but extended tubes. I might try and take the wheel off and do one at a time and see if I can get it.

    Farmall made a compressor with a cut up caulking gun.. You can probably visualize it.

    Looks like it would work slick.

    Took the wheel off and was able to extend the forks fully. I just got too excited yesterday and had to throw the wheel on which made it a bitch to pull the lowers away from the tubes lol

    In future if you add shim length or stiffer springs, get a good quality caulking gun and do something like this. You could even weld up an attractive "cage" and just use the caulking gun plunger and friction ratchet assembly end of the gun but the ugly version works for me. http://www.chopcult.com/forum/showthread.php?t=49444

    Finishing my tank mounts at work tomorrow. I’d like an engineering drawing of a dual headlight bracket. Basically need to know the angle and placement of the second mount. I left my angle finder at work �� I’ll keep searching the net until I find something unless you guys have a stash of engineering drawings laying around......

    Back to the bike.

    Here we are now.

    Have to make some adjustments to the oil tank mount to allow the fender to sit correctly since, I made that bracket that raises the electric start oil bag up a skosh. But here sitting locked up it’s starting to really take its shape. I love how skinny it is.

    Just purchased:

    Dual headlights NOS Dixie squares.

    Billet oil cooler and the 90* fittings I’ll need.

    NOS shovelhead clutch and brake levers I’m going to cut down. Going to get clutch and brake cables made.

    Then I’ll start the wiring.

    We’re getting close to having a running mock up.

    Got the NOS square Dixie headlights in. Too big for my taste. Going to sell and find something smaller. Click image for larger version.
