    that pic from the top of the fender kinda looked like the sissybar would hit the chain/sprocket? But the next pic from the other side shows the sprocket on? Must fit? The sprocket side sometimes has a dogleg in the fender brace/sissybar to clear the sprocket and chain? remember to weld on a tab on the sissybar if you are running a rear chainguard. must say tho damn nice looking project. looks great!

Not running front brakes.

    Quality handmade motorcycles finished up my forks. They are looking fucking sweet. TC Bros 6 over forks came in too. Just mocking things up for now. Waiting on some mounting tabs and bungs to to finish up oil tank and fender.





    Once these tabs and bungs come in Iím ripping out the engine and trans to weld everything up. Gonna cut off useless stuff on the frame then clean it up rattle can it. Iíll take it apart this winter and powder coat.

    Got dang! Forks look nice!

    Yeah I was trying to figure it all out with those pics. First time I’ve ever done anything like this. Got everything lined up and cleared. Had to wait for the chain to come in to make my final alignments and cuts. Spent most of my time looking up pics and searching here on chopcult.

    Yeah the dude is super talented. He does lots of other work in his shop too. Quick turnaround as well. I shipped my forks out last Wednesday and I’ll be getting them back in the mail this Saturday. I’ll post up some pics when I get them put on.

    Got the new seat in the mail from Prism Supply. It’s awesome but I did not measure correctly when I cut the fender so the seat goes farther back then what I wanted. I was hoping it would end a few inches before the sissy. Oh well. I’m still stoked about it, looks good IMO. If I’m not happy with it I’ll get a new fender this winter.

    Fender & sissy bar are a Done, oil tank is 1/2 attached. I got the other two threaded bungs I needed in the mail today. I’ll finish it up tomorrow.



    I’ll be dropping the frame off to the local shop, Paradise Cycles, for some pro welding.

    Thanks man, much appreciated. Once it’s bolted down it actually sits right at the end of the sissy so I’m very happy about it.

    I need to figure out some highway peg mount options for rigids. Trying to get some nice lean back on those long runs. The plan is to run Frisco mids.

    I also plan on running Zombie performance Titty bar pull back bars as long as they have enough pull back for me.

    Assembled my forks today. Ordered some Bel-Ray 10w fork oil, I’ll finish it up when it comes in. I can’t wait to see these mounted up.



    Drained the transmission fluid and put in some fresh 50w while I was out there.

    I took a closer look at the gas tank today. Some serious surface rust going on in there. At first I mildly freaked out. Then decided to search Chopcult. I guess this is fairly common. I tossed in 2 gallons of apple cider vinegar and Iím gonna let it sit for a few days. Then I plan on tossing in some smooth pebble rocks and shake it around. Then finish it off with some Red Kote.



    Picked up some essentials

    Tank turned out pretty good. Waiting for it to dry fully then ill apply the Red Kote.



    Got the frame back. Ready to build back up now. Sanded it down and applied two coats of Rustoleum appliance epoxy.



    Edit: waited for it to dry then mounted fender, sissy, and seat. Still need to get fender/sissy powder coated and drill frame for front seat mount.

    So Iím flipping through my clymers manual trying to find engine mount torque specs. It only mentions upper engine mounting bracket at 35 to 40 ft/lbs. Are the lower engine mounts the same? Or are they the crankcase stud nuts/bolts? Iím not a fan of this manual. The HD one I have for my Sportster is Much better. And yeah Iíll be shimming there engine and trans cuz some shims fell out when I took them out.

    Got the front end just about finished up. Topped it off with bel ray 10w oil. I need to order two 1Ē axles spacers for the spool.

    I ordered a Rivera Primo 2Ē open belt drive and their Pro Clutch. Supposed to come in early next week.




    Also, I ordered some Vtwin oil line fittings and they would not thread onto the TT style horseshoe oil tank. From all the research I did they should have. Any ideas?

    This awesomeness came in the mail today. Except the compensator nut won’t thread on. Seems like it’s the wrong thread pitch. I sent them an email, I’m sure they will make it right. Or I’ll just use the stock one.

    Looks like I lost a bunch of posts. It's fine, because she's still not running, lol. All wired up but, won't kick over. I took a break over the past several months. But its cooling off here in FL and I'm ready to dive back in. I'm gonna mess with the timing this weekend, and try a different kick starting procedure which I just read about in another thread. Here's an updated pic, she'll run one day.
