Just found this thread. Way Cool. You encourage me to finally get back at and finish my blown pan project. Started accumulating parts many, many moons ago. Still dream about it, maybe it's time to do it....
Aloha from Maui....

Looks great as is, don't change a thing unless you as the owner want something else. Perfection is in the eyes of the owner!!

Started digging the parts out last nite. Bought a basket case '59 FLH about 40 years ago and wanted to do a blower, so been collecting parts since then. Done a lot of other projects during that time, and I think the '59's time has come. Will do a build thread. You've given me some good ideas.

Just finished a '55 Chevy gasser style, blown Olds power, it's a 'gas' to drive!
There's a thread over at the HAMB on that one.

The car and bike are both sick!

Can't wait to help with that pan and the other pan and the sturgis and the other 55...

I finally got the bar done. The grips got unnessesary thick but what to do. Its modified springer spirals i based my grips on.
The bar got the same surface treatment that the megafones got. Oilsoaked rag and the blowtorch, it gives a cool rough feel to the metal. Blacksmith'ish kind of feel

If you can, when you get this bike going post a video of it running down a strip. Cheers Deuce.

Yeah,the bike carries more attitude than speed i'm afraid.
But since the bike is so small and im so tall i can hardly ride the thing with any dignity left anyway. it's more art to me than bike

progress is so slow so i've given up summer of 2013 and is hoping for 2014. So don't be inpatient about vids.....

Thanks alot!

Since lightning struck out my internet connection, i've found some time to actually do something instead of just whining here about lack progress.

I made a to do list of 20 things to do before starting this thing up.
Mainly small things like fuel lines etc. and some bigger like fabing up some pegs and pedals.
There are 18 left.
Sadly, visually there will be no suprises from here on. What you see is what it gonna look like.
Maybe if it finishes well before next summer i might try to fab my own gastank, but it ain't no priority in this stage. With a little luck lightning strikes again!!

It's a bar end plug and a petcock. The petcock(?) is made out of an old plumbing part i found at friends house a couple of years ago. I knew right then that it was made to be an petcock som day!

I where at the A-bombers meet to get some inspiration. When i stumbled on this panbobber. It was a real sweet machine by all means but some of the details stuck out the crowd.
Aside from having the twin mr3 linkerts bolted directly to the heads and an mechanical revcounter from the ignition, it featured this genius no clutch gearchange contraption that dragstews showed a while ago.

That thing just won't leave me alone. Hopefully i can forget and move on or i just have make and master this gearchanger, there are no other outcome!

And by the way. I changed the thread name. The new name does a better job of telling that this thread is about. rather than the old name that wasn't so exciting...

You need to build that.... Gear changer. Only brass pedal like a Lee clutch pedal.

Super racecar it would be!

I thought you had a new kid?
