    I finally got a chance to break away and start stripping the sportster, and prepare for the DB hard tail. Should be here soon. Got my shopping cart full at the old bike barn too.

    I'm not really sure how I'm going to mount it to the frame yet - I have some ideas, but I'll have a better plan once I actually have it in hand.

    As far as progress, I really haven't done a whole lot unfortunately - the weather has been crap and I just haven't been motivated to freeze my balls off in the unheated garage... and then I lost my job so I've been scrambling trying to get new work - I think I put in more hours doing that than I did with my old job!

    I've done some sketching for mocking up parts, but... not a whole lot of other progress.

    On yours, are you going single carb or dual carb?

    Bummer about the job bro. Good luck with the hunt, in this economy I know what it's like. Dude those bars are tall!!! I'm Frickin short. Wish I could rock apes that high! Haha. As far as the carbs go. I was ready to go single. But my motorcycle mechanic buddy talked me out of it. Instead I'm going to keep the two and do velocity stack screens with clamps right on the carbs. Those pod filters just don't look right on these bikes. One facing the front and one facing the back. No way. Anyway good luck with the build, I'll post my progress as it comes together. Should be more now since it's finally gunna warm up. I was made for Arizona but born in Canada Eh. LOL.

    Kind of a bitch, had to cut the bottom out of the peg arm and bend it back. Cut off the excess metal and grind it smooth. They work good now. Move up and down better then I thought.

    I started using THIS method to clean the rust out of my tank. I was surprised at the amount of buildup on the anode after only an hour.

    Greasy Dozen Builders Collective, builders, lurkers and friends this thread is awesome. Spreading the the good word about Garage built bikes was our agenda and I can see it working. Thanks for the posts.

    To the 12 Winners, I know you are patiently waiting on prizes, corralling this thing seems to take about 6 weeks of broken telephone but I'm close.
    I'm missing a few shirt sizes if your unsure if you sent me your size please drop me an email.

    I fried another hard drive so my work will be slow the next few days but I'm here watching an compiling the prizes.

    Thanks again for your posts please share the love for built not bought motorcycle culture where ever you can.

    Cheers

    -Bear

    Keep up the hard work yourself too Bear. Cant be said enough, I know we all appreciate it. Sometimes the guys behind the scenes start feeling beaten down, so it cant be said enough.

    What Spidr said.

    And speaking of Spidr, I miss your updates. Get better soon. Or, just let your daughter build it without you.

    Got my parts in from old bike barn. New mini speedo , checked it against the Oem and only 5mph off. Think I can get it spot on with just a tire size change.

    No wrenching this weekend- the "honey-do" list was outta control. But did get some work done the last 10 days at night after work; Got almost the whole frame ground down to metal, will need to sand blast the last bits. Got a wild hair and decided to dish knee dents into the backup tank I have, just to see how it would turn out and look. Looks pretty good, but the tank had more bondo and dents on it then I realized. It will serve as a good back up tank anyway, and now I have the experience of doing it to feel comfortable going after the primary fuel tank. Hint- less is more, go slow, and dont miss hit along the edge- one misplaced whack and you've screwed it up.

    Some more pics of the tank. Once you get over the intimidation of whacking your tank to put dents in it, its gets fun, and isn't that hard to do well. The pic with the paper taped to the tank is where I traced the dish that I basically free-handed to transfer it over to the opposite side. There are actually quite a few good videos on You Tube on how to do all this... Used the grinder and sanding wheel to remove the old paint and built up bondo. Gotta strip the rest of the paint, bondo, sand, prime and then rattle can it.

    Plus I started tearing down the wheels to check the bearings, clean and shine up the assorted bits, and get them ready for painting. Oh, and ordered and received my new tires. Shinko 230's- very good reviews, priced well, and shipped from Amazon right quick.
