    Absolutely stunning job Doom, everything is on point, and the detail you put in really tied it all together. Hopefully I can see it in person this summer if ya got the time.

    Thanks Confab!

    ECE, we have to get together this year, a run to the Docks sounds like a plan

    So the missus came out and looked her over, she loves the leather work that Hard Luck Design did. She no longer rides with me and after looking at the skinny little P-Pad on the back she said I can take it to the bar anytime I want, and just laughed.

    Well today was a mixed bag, the fuel line is fixed and I don't see a leak in the oil line at 2k rpm, but then the oil ain't hot yet and that sure does make a difference. That was the good news, the bad was that USAA wants to total my wife's Volt and not give us shit for it.

    Spent the last two hours doing screen captures of like cars showing USAA is off by over $5K on the value, should be interesting to see what they end up doing for us. Shit I would prefer the car be repaired, we just put new tires and a new low voltage charging system in it.....

    Anyhow, just need to wait for a decently warm day to take her out on a maiden spin to see if anything falls off, lol.

    Here are some beauty pics of the finished bike. So far I have a whole 10 miles on the finished product, hopefully the weather will cooperate soon. I have to say the leather work really sets it off!

    A while ago I posted up asking if anyone has experience with the "air over spring" suspensions out there. Specifically with the spring rate as shipped. My last little test ride damn near did my back in so I decided I needed to come up with another solution.

    This is the "shock" unit torn down, the "shock" part is really deceptive, I expected to find a piston & seal setup, but no it is just a bar riding through the nut. Not really a shock absorber at all.

    I did find that McMaster & Carr carry "piano wire compression springs" that are just right, 2" height x 1 5/8" OD, with various spring rates.

    The spring on the left is the original 300 lbs spring, the right is an 88 lbs spring, and the middle is a 120 lbs spring. The 300 is like a rock giving way only for the worst pot holes. I thought the 88 would do it, 2 x 88 = 176lbs capacity, plus some adjustment to get to 180, but nope too soft and bottomed out looking at it too hard.

    The 120 lbs seem pretty damn good, however I am still not able to ride so it may be a few more days before I give the final on them.

    Thanks man, ya, the leather work coming out of Hard Luck Design is outstanding. I am already thinking about what I want on the next build, lol.

    The 120 springs work ( I am around 180 lbs ). But I think I could have gone a littler higher to maybe 150 or 180lbs. Next bike...

    Unfortunately, my riding days are pretty much over, too much damage over too many years. But, I still want to build em and I've got nothing but time. It's all good.

    And ya, I'm really thinking a digger if I can make the numbers work.

    And off she goes to a new home in New Jersey. The new owner blew me away, he is 77 and his wife bought it for him. My wife buys me socks, sigh....

    It is one of those bitter sweet things, but now the search begins for the next one! The next project is to finish this house and sell it before the damn market crashes! But I will be keeping my eye out for the right bike.
