    So I went from powder coating to just spray and last minute decided to rattle can. The only party getting painted are the frame and tins so I figured if I take my time I can make it look good for around 20$ for everything. Plus I’m going with a simple paint scheme so what the hell. If it looks shitty next winter I’ll strip it down and go with powder coating. Everything. My brother has a friend that can powder coat small parts so I might get my triple clamps done along with some other small miscellaneous parts. Here’s where I’m at:
    Ready to prime it. Didn’t take it down to bare metal mostly due to laziness just scuff the factory clear coat

    Nice build dude! My 86 Sporty has been my project for the past year+. I also bought mine not knowing just how much was different between the 86-90s and the 91-03s.

    I bought this one on 12/22/19 and expected it to take me around 6 months or more but once I got going I couldnít slowdown on it. In retrospect I probably wouldíve looked for a 91 or newer but at least I saved money on chain conversion. Iím a little nervous about wiring it but should be alright. Do you have a thread on yours? Iíd love to check it out

    My thread is super out of date, I need to update it because it's almost all together now.

    I bought mine in like October of 2017 but I didn't start chopping it up til January of 2019 and I'm still not done. I didn't stick with the original engine and trans though, which is the main reason it's taken so long. With the 86-89 frames, the kickstand/jiffy mount doesn't allow for a newer engine to bolt up to the frame because the mount gets in the way. So I've had to figure out an aftermarket kickstand and a bunch of other random hiccups along the way.

    Paint is all wrapped up. Just letting it sit and cure before we reassemble the bike. I sanded the frame then primered then wet sanded the primer with 320 grit then primed again then sprayed then wet sanded the paint then did another coat and 2 coats of clear over that. Same process with the tins and for rattle can Iím extremely happy with the results. Once theyíre cured Iíll cut and buff everything to really get a good shine. Click image for larger version.

    I’m not quite ready to put everything together because I’m still waiting on front tire, tubes, dyna s ignition dyna 5 ohm coil and mechanical advance unit. But I couldn’t wait and decided to get it somewhat together and over the next couple weeks button everything up and wire it. In the next week I’ll post up a parts list and brand of everything I went with. Surprise most the stuff came from lowbrow customs. I’m very very fond of this company and they have been extremely rad to deal with. No egos just motorcycles. Here’s today progress.Click image for larger version.

    A little more put together here. I had a problem with the cam cover and the breather fitting and had to pull it off so now I’m waiting on a cam cover gasket. The primary cover threads for the clutch barrel were stripped pretty bad and I didn’t feel like re tapping them when I still had to get the chrome removed from it. So I found a perfect raw metal primary cover on eBay for 65$ and am waiting for that so I can hookup the clutch cable. So what’s left is: get new tires installed. Avon MkII rear and speed master front. Install dyna s ignition and dyna coil. Cut lowbrow spark wires. Hook up rear brake hook up new oil lines. Hook up clutch cable and reinstall starter Install new exhaust studs and put the pipes on Wire the bitch up and rip. Unless I run into some serious problems which I can’t think of any that I could(knock on wood) it will be done 3/14. I’m beyond stoked. First build things have gone pretty smooth so far. I’ve also taken my time and not rushed anything and had 90% of my stuff ordered before I cut started it really helped. Hope everyone enjoys. And I will be posting the parts list with links to everything.

    So I worked everything up yesterday. Did an okay job on the wiring not much is showing. I’m still debating drilling a hole in the bottom of the down tube to run the wires up up but who knows. After wiring which went super fast it started up first go try. I ran into 2 problems one of which was my fault. The rear end is stretched 2 inches so the stock brake line didn’t fit (about 2inches short lol) I have an appropriate sized brake line and banjo bolt brake switch on their way. Second problem is my clutch cable seems short. Not short as in reaching from bars to primary. The actual cable size inside the housing. I have the adjuster maxed out to allow the most cable out of the cable housing and with the cable hooked up the clutch lever doesn’t even hit the bars pulling in the lever. Witch the cable hooked up it seems like I only have about 2/3 clutch cable that I’m supposed to have. I ordered the correct cable and can’t seem to figure out this silly problem. Can anyone help with this? It’s also an 87 so I don’t have the luxury of a derby cover and need to remove the whole primary cover to access the clutch. After the brake is hooked up this is the last thing keeping me from riding. Here’s some pics for y’all.
