    Say ....

    Ain't you going to need a ele-starter for the 5-speed tranny .. ??

    I have a used (But not used up) Spyke Starter 1.4 kW Hi-Torque "Polished" ...



    Make me a reasonable offer and it will be added to your growing pile of parts ...

    Opps ...

    Not polished, it be chrome ...



    I sold this new and the owner used it for bout 6 months and then got me to order a Stealth Starter to replace it ... (Wanted the super custom look)

    In other words, the starter don't have much run time on it ...
    (A rattle can will fix the bad chrome problem)



    48 didn't have all that going on .... Dang shame they didn't .. !!

    You build some pretty shit, Drag. I belive Farmall and the owner of that shiny ass pan will be super happy with their projects. Keep up the detailed build threads. I enjoy them very much. Maybe start the next with "call me Ishmael" . Just a thought.

    I'm good on starters thanks to my morbid Denso OSGR Light Duty fetish but thanks anyway. I want to avoid modern-looking chrome and favor pseudo-sand cast finishes (visible permanent mold smoothness is too modern for my tastes on this one).

    Speaking of which when the generator shows up don't bother blasting the regulator
    . I'm gonna figure out a consistent way to get a cast-looking finish on all the permanent mold parts.

    I'm gonna get a Horror Fright scaler since my big ass Texas scaler needles are too large then sharpen them per

    https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/...t-look.222513/

    I'll need to sort out an appropriate sprung seat post and full-sized sprung seat for this one as little kool seats aren't kool for my spine and that will suit the overall look I want. (I forget the vendor but they do AMCA shows with a shitload of seats so I'll likely wait until next Denton to choose a seat in person after appropriate fondling.)

    Pic shows approximate layout I'm considering but not with that Brit front end and with 3.5 tanks.

    Check out a Mustang (the motorcycle, I am thinking maybe Cecil Yother?) solo seat pan. They seem to be kinda smaller overall then the stock HD indian solo pan, but I could be wrong. Last one I bought was about 85 bucks bare pan, but has been a few years back. Cant remember if the cushman is smaller than the stock solo also. The stubby nose ones are kinda ugly imho Or the large bates if ya could find one

    I have a wonder .. ??

    Although you're nowhere close to this part of the build yet, it's coming ..

    My wonder is what you'll be doing for a oil tank .. ??

    Since the "look of old" is the game plan with a bit of today's creature comforts thrown into the soup ..
    Perhaps the tank should also retain the Oem look of yesterday .. ??

    And dat brings me to this ...



    If you're up for some custom fitting work, this kit would be give you the base line to start from ..

    $100 for what you see ..

    Steel shot in a serious industrial blaster is the old standard. A company that repaints water towers used to do it for me. Then river sand then glass beads in a cabinet.

    Love the looks of the narrowed forks with the top sliders installed ...



    But dang, the re-pops command huge $$'s .. !!
    (And finding a used set that was made back in the day would be like running up on a DoDo bird)



    Anyway, just an idea !!

    Both those oil bag options look good and I've two machines needing oil bags with batteries... I'll have to wait to choose though.

    The cylindrical tank having room (and better external airflow) for a large battery looks interesting but so does the kit which I could use with NPT bungs (me no like hard lines and may run an oil cooler, I've not chosen a filter yet and probably won't until it's mocked up in my living room.

    The '73 Ironhead I'm redoing cosmetics on might benefit from either one. How much for the cylindrical tank and can they be had unplated? I have high temp coating lust. I love stainless and aluminum but really dislike chrome.

    Forks will probably be 39mm HD since smoothing the alloy trees is easy and I've a lathe and mill to aid in mounting whatever brake I choose. The top triple clamp off rubbermount Sporties doesn't use bushings so I would use that cleaner style. I can coat the parts with Cerakote via my gunsmithbro or me since they fit my oven if I'm not feeling alloy. (Everyone should snag a cheap electric oven for parts cookin', I put mine on a castered base.) I may do upper fork shrouds.

    I have Norton Commando and alloy slider Triumph forks to spare but the Commando forks are loose even for the flyweight Norton and I don't care for the Triumph design except on a Triumph.. If I did a front drum I'd use a pretty Commando front with stiffening kit but they still suck so I'm toying with British-contour smooth stainless rims on an HD front single disc hub and undecided rear hub. I don't like the HD sprocket/drum setup nor the shouldered HD rim style so the jury is out until I mock up different options, perhaps including the Suzuki cush drive mechanical brake hub popular on AHRMA bikes (because it gives ample sprocket choice while having a cush drive). Drilled discs look overly modern so I'll hunt plain if I run them.

    What seat and post is on that Turbo 48 above?


    Lot of badass stuff in this thread. I got lost.

    How much of this is yours, Farmall? You getting a whole bike done?

    Chassis, engine, trans and the whole bit?
    Drag is building the engine since I can't come close to matching his Pan skills/encyclopedic knowledge and I have the sense to outsource what is best outsourced. I'm ordering many parts through him since he's good to deal with and one-stop shopping is so convenient. I'll drive down to pick up the engine, frame, etc when the pile is large enough since gas is cheaper than shipping and it will be fun to see the wizard's cave. I'll mockup and finish at my place since the rest is pretty basic.

    I could afford to commission a bike but that's like paying someone else to fuck my old lady so in this case I'll just outsource a blowie (the engine) and tap the other proverbial mechanical orifices myself in a pragmatic mechanical compromise! If you don't picture two old people spitroasting an innocent Panhead that may (I don't judge) be better for your mental health.

    That's bout right ...
    Speaking of Horror Fright tools I found a good use for their air chisel and would do it with a larger one. I cut off an old air chisel, welded a hunk of pipe onto it then beat some brass round bar into the pipe for a vibrating beater bar which worked surprisingly well vs. harder blows with a heavy hammer, and only requires one hand leaving the other free.

    What seat and post is on that Turbo 48 above?


    Leather SOLO SEAT

    16" Long x 14" Wide
    1-3/8" Thick
    2 Rear Spring Mount holes are threaded 5/16NF (6-5/8" Apart)
    BROWN Genuine Leather with Cobbler Edge







    Very comfortable seat, even for my fat ass ...
    I modified a T-Bar for using the springs ..

    Your frame has the bushing installed and sized for a Oem spring seat post, be Plug & Play with the WR-KR seat ....

    Please inquire re: the raw version, and if they can send clear color pics those could go in this thread (potential sales for them) for a highly detailed view by other potential customers. If it's about 250 pull the trigger as that's fair for a quality tank.

    Got any seatposts and is it significantly preferable to hunt an original assembly? I've zero seat post style seat hardware.

    I like that style seat but with thicker padding and now dat I'm thinking about it may have a large gel pack upholstered into one for a built in sciatica cushion.

    I've got arthritis, sciatica and old white guy ass (none) so best to build for da future...

    My rocker covers have some dings so I'll need stainless covers.

    Are the steel D-rings equal or superior to cast alloy? Are stainless D-rings available? I'll also need a stainless acorn nut hardware kit.

    Think that is made by Kraft Tech ^^

    If you do like that tank above I can sell it to you at the same price as the eBay ad states, plus I'll pick up the shipping cost ...

    The Paugcho tank would require more work to install cause the front mount is made for a Softail frame ...



    Kraft Tech tank front mount is Plug & Play on your frame ..
