    They're actually some cobra pipes that I had for sale. I'm probably going to put some high shotguns or some up-sweep fishtail tips. It all depends how I feel once we get the roller together.

    So I looked at the o-rings when I took apart to rocker boxes and they looked fine but then again I never saw the bike run. I think the guy may have been trying to black out the rocker boxes because the inside of those boxes were clean and didnt show a ton of wear. The cases are black the cylinders and heads were black and my guess is they wanted the rocker boxes black to match.

    Seeing as the 1984 came with a belt drive cowpie trans we decided to seek out a ratchet top trans. I was able to locate a 1977 trans that has been completely rebuilt so it should be in by next week. This has moved the timeline up quite a bit we are expediting some things.

    Just an update everyone the transmission came in and looks just as good as the pictures. We took the heads off as well as the cam cone today and boy was there a ton of carbon built up on those pistons. I did have a question someone may have the answer to. The bottom end of the motor is painted in crinkle black paint is there any good way of getting that stuff off without tearing down the motor completely?

    I have a friend who's building a 69 genny shovel with the shame problem. He's taken the engine out, the stuff is damn hard to get off from what he's told me!

    dot 3 brake fluid takes wrinkle paint off without affecting the aluminum finish and cleans up with brake cleaner. Course they may have sanded it before paint. I've never tried it on JB Weld but it gets every thing else if I spill it on except powder coat, just discolors it.

    Thanks for the tip dusty. The paint on the cases is from the factory. The FXWG came with blacked out cases and heads but the rocker boxes werent painted factory. I'll try the brake fluid before anything.

    I talked to mike from 47 industries and they’ve already got the frame in the jig cutting away. So here shortly we should have the frame finished. I also sourced a panhead wide glide from Masaya Kosaka it’s shipped and headed my way. If the Buchanan spikes come in we may get my wheels laced up this weekend. With the holiday idk. We shall see how it goes. I’ve also got a gas tank that should be in by Thursday. Things are coming together.

    Well at least it posted them in the correct orientation. I’ll have to get the bottom tree chromed and I’ll also have to shave the lowers. If anyone wants to put forth some guidance there I’d greatly appreciate it. The panhead wide glide is really going to set off the front of this bike. Like I said in the previous post if anyone is hoarding a fender that would fit an 18 inch tire well HMU. It needs to be a little over 5 inches wide to accommodate a pillion pad.

    I'm not going to run a front brake at all. Some may cry foul but I'm going to shave those lower legs and then chrome them. Interesting thing if you look it actually has two right side legs on it because the hole on the left side leg (right side in the picture) should be in the rear.

    Hahaha.

    I’m doing the same, no front brakes. At least I’m gonna give it a try.

    My friend Kraut Hartman built a shovelhead motor with a knucklhead and a panhead top end and it had a dual drum wide glide on it.
