    Default Bottom Feeder.

    Well, I guess it's about time I started my build thread. I had put this off because I knew it would take awhile but i'm starting to loose track of things.
    The wife has christened it "Bottom Feeder" because most of the parts have come from scouring the net and snatching up stuff others have discarded.
    Here's day two, I didn't take a pic of the motor when I brought it home because i was so anxious to get it scrubbed and a peek inside and get the crusty rocker boxes polished. Speaking of polished, all of the parts shown in this thread were polished by hand. No buffing wheels, just files, sandpaper and Mothers.
    This started nearly 2 years ago. I'd hoped to have it finished this spring but like so many others right now, money has been very tight. For now, I feel good knowing that it's still moving forward.
    My Labor of Love.

    Building motor. Bottom already done (oil pump rebuilt, new gaskets, breather, shims, bushings, clearances checked, etc), jugs blasted and painted, heads assembled with new valve guides, valves.
    I don't have tranny build pics. My ADD/OCD took over and as soon as I had it in my hands and it got worked over. It got some new internals, FX top, new covers, seals

    First slap together, I need to buy some more blue tape. Not sure about the tank, I have a couple more in mind. I won't decide until I get the others. The bars gotta go, too much rise and sweep.. plus, I can't cut them narrow enough to match the width of the pegs and still have room for the controls.

    Thanks Ogcoda.
    I use the tape to mark off groups of 4 holes. I'm easily distracted by shiny things.

    Excellent work. Being an old H-D guy, I have an appreciation for polished aluminum (but I hate the Hell out of CHROME).

    Glad to see another BT build. I like it.

    I'm not a big fan of chrome myself, or billet for that matter. I don't mind chrome where it's needed but I prefer polished cast aluminum, especially if it's left a little rough in some of the tight spots. I like it to look like it was caressed by a loving owner over many years.

    Not much going on... Tried a few new tanks and keep coming back to this one, it just plain works. Threw on the pegs to get a feel for the ergos. Tried mids but my knee said no way. Bars gotta go. I've got a few in mind, just have to gather the scratch. I'm gonna have to take another inch (or two) out of the forks.

    Thanks guys.
    It really feels good seeing this bike that has been bouncing around in my head for years (decades?) finally becoming a reality and It's also nice to see that there are others that like the way it's turning out.

    New headlight.... don't think it's going to work.
    I'm going to keep it as a reminder of the garbage you get from the net.
