65 panhead, 1955 panhead, 36 knucklehead and maternity photos

We got Jason's 65 finished and put about 300 miles on it,  my dad is driving down to the Texas road run and delivering it this weekend.  This bike is massive,  I didn't try to ride it with the buddy seat on it,  I am too short!  Jason is a lot taller than me and will do just fine on it.  

1965 didn't use a side cover on the battery,  I think it looks nice with out it.  The battery that we used is a champion battery and it is nice and black, some of the other modern batteries are clear or have a bunch of writing on them.  The mufflers are new old stock and sound great.  The tour pack is something that Jason supplied and it is really cool. It has an early latch on it and also a handle so you can Cary it with you



I got to take my 36 out for the first time this year. Sophorn put a windshield on it, which ended up being more of a challenge than we anticipated since the summer shields were designed for standard rigid bars and I have Flanders bars on my bike.   

I am making good progress on the 55 too it should be done and running next week.  This bike is phenomenal and I feel so lucky to get to work on such a nice pristine example of an original bike
The rear header pipe was missing when they brought the bike to us.  My dad had a nice old original superior rear header pipe in his stash of parts.  It fit up really nicely and matches the rest of the bike well


Britt and I did our maternity photos with the bike. It was fun.  Here is a link to the rest of the photos http://jaceejphotography.blogspot.com/2014/04/brittney-matt-maternity.html?m=1

Peoples Champ - Generator Magneto

I always wanted to make a gen mounted magneto. Never for a fancy "show motor"... just for fun. I made a cone mounted magneto a few months earlier which really gave me an understanding of some of the basics. I noticed that everyone this year was getting really turned on to the Wico design but when I researched it myself I realized 2 things that I WAS NOT down with. First, you need to alter the inside of the case byP= machining the idler gear boss casting and ultimately removing it. This edit to the case is just silly and shortsighted. Second, the price tag for the kit is $2k!!! I'm a normal person with a normal job who makes regular pay with 2 kids and a wife at home. $2k just ain't happening. The other option is the Morris H5 which is super rad but again, at $1600, unfortunately I'll have to pass. I looked at the inside of my case and the gears and I looked at how the old Harley XR magnetos operated. They were gear driven. Well wouldn't you know... the Morris design is gear driven too! I bought a shitty FM-XD mag from ebay and butted it up to the gen hole. Surprise, it's a very close fit! Not perfect but close. More important, the FMXD has an impulse winding just like the H5. IMG_4418 IMG_4425 IMG_4427 IMG_4443 After reviewing the case, the mag and the gears I had a good overview of the project. 1. A collar is required to mount the mag to the case. 2. The magneto needs to spin in reverse. 3. The impulse winding needs to be reversed. 4. A gear set is needed to adapt the idler gear to the magneto. 5. The magneto must spin at exact 1:1 ration with the cam. 6. A fresh FM-XD magneto must be converted to a dual fire coil.   More to come on this in my next blog post.

2016 Progressive International Motorcycle Show - Part 5

Jordan from Union Speed and Style had two bikes in the 2016 Progressive International Motorcycle Show.  His craftsmanship is top-notch and both bikes are beautiful but I'm partial to the knucklehead.

This is Jordan's panhead, the "Frost Buzzard".

Pete also had two bikes in the show.  You've likely seen many photos of these bikes on the blog.

Swamp Witch!

I'll wrap up coverage from the show tomorrow with bikes, girls, and chopsticks.  Makes sense, right?
