Complete early 283 Hi-Po Chevrolet V8 motor and TH350 trans. This is a really good running motor and trans that is super smooth and tight and very fast. The motor is a rare 1958-1962, High performance 315HP model. It was purchased by the Kennedy brothers in Pomona, California about 4 years ago and was pulled from a local Deuce 5 window where it had been sitting since the 60's. After being stripped and inspected and finding it was good condition low mileage engine the heads were rebuilt for good measure, full set of gaskets were installed as well as a new Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock carb, chrome alternator, starter, water pump, plugs, wires, distributor cap, points etc, before being painted orange. I have maybe done 600 miles since all this work done and it has never skipped a beat and does not leak or burn oil. it has great oil pressure, 40-45 when cold and 25-30 when hot. The trans was also a low mileage item and fitted with a new high stall converter, kick down linkage and an old chrome B&M shifter and it works great and shifts good. The 4 barrel air cleaner is a rare old aluminum Nicson marine style unit. The headers are old modified tube style and were on this very coupe since 1964. The aluminum valve covers are vintage 60's finned Corvette. I even have the original cut down fan for the front pulley! I have decided to put an early Cad motor and manual trans in my coupe so that is the reason this good running set up is up for grabs. I will be pulling it all out as one thing, so this really is a bolt in a car and go deal!! It's all still in my car so if you are interested you can check it out, hear it and ride in the car! It is located in Hollywood, California is local pick up only. $1500.00 firm. firstname.lastname@example.org The original chopped down Deuce grille shell & insert, custom made radiator and electric fan will also be available soon if anyone is interested.
Located in Afton Oklahoma the Darryl Starbird National Rod and Custom Car Hall of Fame Museum immediately caught my attention. Taking a lesson learned from our previous ( @wussarmy ) Kit's Kulture Rides, we immediately made a bee line for the museum while crossing the country this summer. ...And it was well worth it. The museum housed over 50 custom vehicles, most from Darryl Starbirds custom shop build decades ago and preserved in their prime! Absolutely amazing.
Here it is, the poster for the latest Mooneyes Hot Rod Custom Show in Yokohama Japan. So many incredible machines on it! This show has got to be the best indoor show for all kinds of bikes and all kinds of cars. We look forward to this every year and hopefully you too can make it out for the big 25th anniversary show!
Using the 1994-2003 Tsunami Fender on this 1993 Sportster, the only bolt hole that lines up is the center hole that is located under the seat. Once you have removed your stock fender, use the stock nut and bolt from your motorcycle to bolt the Tsunami Fender in place.
Once you have the fender held in place with the center bolt you can see how the fender lines up to the fender struts. Ensuring you have plenty of clearance between the tire and fender, mark where you will need to drill the new mounting holes in your Tsunami Fender. This can be done by scribing the fender with a sharp scribe through the fender strut holes, or a pencil or pen. Remove the fender, center punch the holes (you can do this using a hammer and punch to mark the center of each hole you will be drilling) to ensure your drill bit doesn't wander and drill them to size for your mounting hardware. You can then bolt the fender fully in place.
Once the fender is bolted securely in place, trace along the fender strut to mark where to cut off any excess material on the fender. This can be done with an angle grinder with a cut off wheel, or if need be you can even use a hacksaw to cut the aluminum pretty quickly. You can also trim your fender struts shorter to remove the excess length if you are not using the stock turn signals location, further cleaning up the rear mounting area. Use the sand paper or a sandpaper flap disk on your grinder to smooth out any rough edges and clean up the radius where you trimmed the fender. That's it! Paired with a few other Sportster chopper parts your bike can go from stock to custom in an afternoon and without breaking the bank.
