    We might outta back down on the 10" over fork to get the look in David Mann's photo ....

    In order to run it, going to have a bit of rake even with a 2" stretch ...
    I'm thinking out loud here, but I see the Autocad kicking out 38* or 39* on the rake... ???

    Also have to wait till next week to see what kind of damage I did to my knee. Had the meniscus trimmed on it a few years back and now that the swelling has gone down it feels like I am kneeling on broken glass! If it ain't one thing it is another!
    It would be wise to cunningly plan for a future (modern which means Denso of some sort) electric start of whatever type (if you're a realist) since time has no mercy. That doesn't actually mean install one which would run counter to Artistic purity, but you can build with an eye to not excluding easy conversion down the road and if you never need it then you lose nothing. The end housings would be easy to pretty up or cover with something chopulent.

    Completely agree with you Farmall, I've been eyeballing the mech candy that Jesse posted in another thread. But keeping an eye toward aging at all times, lol. This from a kid who did not expect to see 25 much less 30 or freaking 65!

    So the impossible task is to give me a combo that will leave the frame close to flat along the bottom, with a bit of front end extension to show off those classic VL lines, and enough trail to not do a death wobble at 60 mph AND be stable enough to work with a sidecar attached. PLUS I want to run 3.5 bobs and not look goofy as hell doing it.

    So this may be my favorite build. The neck was raked via a hacksaw and a welder with a line on the floor to keep it straight, ah to be young and inventive.

    I like BBQs overall look, and I think that Jesse's bike is pretty close to what I wanted.

    The one inch in the downtubes would simply lift the tank in order to show off a little more motor without jumping out at ya and saying hey I've been stretched!

    The ironic song that almost wasn't .. !!

    The "Over the Rainbow" and Kansas scenes were directed by the uncredited King Vidor, because the film's main director, Victor Fleming, was called in by David O. Selznick and MGM to direct Gone with the Wind.
    Fleming would later return to oversee the editing and post-production on The Wizard of Oz.

    The song was initially deleted from the film after a preview in San Luis Obispo, California, because MGM chief executive Louis B. Mayer thought it "slowed down the picture," was being far over the heads over its targeted children audience, and sounded "like something for Jeanette MacDonald, not for a little girl singing in a barnyard".

    Fleming, producer Mervyn LeRoy, associate producer Arthur Freed, and Roger Edens, who was Judy Garland's vocal coach and mentor, fought together to have the song reinserted back into the film and they eventually won .

    Shazam .. !!!

    Did you come to terms with the need for a front brake? Some idiot recently convinced me of the value of such a thing.

    There's a really cool one in the feature article on the main page right now.

    CB 750 drum polished up and laced to a harley wheel.

    It's pretty neat.
