    Carboncopy136, IndianaSlim

    Thanks guys, been draging my feet on this trying to get a Harley build completed but rest assured more build updates are on the way.

    Spokes have just turned up for the front wheel so going to give it a go to build this up and see how we get on, pics to follow.

    After a mix up with the spokes (19 plays 18 front wheel ) my fault entirely those good guys at Moto-Bins delivered the replacement front spokes. Now I had read several people saying have a go yourself at building the wheel and so far very therapeutic it was, something very satisfying in putting new / refurbed parts back together.
    Not finished yet but an experimental spin up and looks to be running true and concentric - lets see how good it is after a proper spoke tightening session...

    Anyway photos....

    Any reason for using the R69 frame as opposed to a /5 or /6? Just curious.

    Hi IndianaSlim

    Its about the lines of the plunger frame just looks right - already has a drop seat look as standard in my eyes, bit of history and not a typical bike for drag racing also helped.

    Part 2 of the swingarm mounts, cut up some more plate and added a gusset and walked the welds fully underneath and round over the top as well.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Had enough of groveling about on the floor so to aid the setup of the swingarm etc the bike now sits on a new B & Q bench thing that father Christmas left.....

    [IMG][/IMG]

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Next up was sorting the rim to hub offset break out the string line and straight edge....

    [IMG][/IMG]

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Ended up with a 10mm rim offset to get the tyre in the center of the swingarm, this should still have clearance to the plunger tube but this is sort of dependant in how much the rear tyre grows when inflated, the bits of BMW gussets will now need to all be removed from the inside of the swingarm but thats a mega grinding job so need to work up some enthusiasm.....

    Last part was the sorting out the swingarm side strut mount, we wanted to reuse the BMW bracket so some careful cutting with a thin disc then a reposition - the the new location around 15/20mm further back and weld into position.

    So bit of an update while we wait for the rear wheel, started to look at mounting the mangement box and then the coil pack.
    Wanted to fing a place to hide its location as this should be a fit and forget so easy access was not the first priority. Ended up finding a space so its hidden inside the tank used some thin mild steel plate and made some folds to give it some more strenght have a look at the photos this may help..
    Oh and yes that is 9000 on the box guess the engine will sound good at those

    Ok so next up was the coil bracket

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Then it was on to some rubber action but first set up the forks and using a cable tie as a marker finished off the final true up of the front wheel and tightening of the spokes.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Ok so about that rubber... fitted the new rim tape then lubed up the tyre and managed to get this over the first part of the rim, threaded in the new tube then the difficult bit or it was for me... again bit more lube got the valve through then with some home made levers the tyre slipped into place well not really slipped but you get the idea. Popped up to the local garage and pumped it up, tyre came up nice on the bead - jobs a good un.

    Final job was to drill off some air holes in the front drum casting...

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Next up need to make up a drum steady and the drum casing has a sleeve pressed in for spindle location but it's 14mm and I am running a 17mm spindle so be on teh phone to moto-bins Monday see if they can help

    Next up was the battery mount, based on the origonal location but just added a keeper plate plan to add a front keeper as well found a nice srap with a turn buckle which should suffice. The lithium battery is just for trial as the ingnition system is total loss and from what i have heard they are good at most things but not suitable for my application.

    On the front spindle Moto-Bins could not help on this occasion - part no longer avalible so it looks like our trusty machine shop is back in business, not sure if we will make a new bush from scratch or machine out the current one to size.......leave that for another installment.

    Hi IndianaSlim - more progress.......

    The rear wheel was finally done and my able assistant picked this up for me while langrished by a pool in sunny spain

    looks nice and they have managed to get the offset I needed, if I get some time now i am back will try to marry the tyre to the rim.

    Next progess update

    Re fitted the swingarm with the wheel mounted, clearance seems good but until the tyre gets mounted and some final checks fingers will stay crossed.
