Man where can see more of that COE in the back ground of the skinny wheel pic? Is that a ford? The frame is cool of course, I'm just a whore for COE trucks

1939 coe's definitely looked like this. I'm pretty sure that '38s did also. however, according to this site it could also be a '37 or '40.

Quick update, more pics to come once I get a minute to catch my breath...

Frame finally arrived after over a year of excuses from frame guy #1. Frame guy #2 delivered in aces: Speed Devices.

The wheels are not staying, I just needed to see what would fit before I get the right ones: 21" front, 16" rear.

This is my son finishing up his first wheel lacing attempt.


He was more than a little happy with the results.


Here is a shot from either side to give an idea of stance. The wheel on the front is a 19", so is 1" smaller in overall diameter, but the rear (right size) but is worn flat, so it is pretty close to overall stance. Prizm tank is compliments of Rob Axle. I think it looks perfect for this bike but will have to get client buy-in before I mount it. Thanks a million Rob!

Anything I can do to help... I am still curious about the head steadies and front motor mounts.... at one point I ran my 650 without head steadies and it caused my rear downtube to split.. not sure if it was the only reason for this failure .. but the more information gathered the better.
Wow, that tank looks at home on that style frame.. the lines carry through.... if your client doesn't care for it, no issues, hang it on your wall..,
Keep us posted on the build .. especially the details ...
Great to see you passing the torch... you are a great mentor..

Looks great Dan, you must be so proud of your son and that he likes to help out and learn from a master.

Rob, I have no doubt that Dan will come up with something beautiful for head steadies.

The front motor mount is on if you look closely. There will be head steadies installed, but there are a other things that need doing first.

I am proud of him. He is a great young man. Maybe some of the things he is learning will serve him well in the future. We are having fun working together regardless Yes, Head steadies are on the way, it just takes some podering to come up with an elegant solution that will work with all this negative space.

Yep, I got him started, and he followed through with the basic lacing.

I finished truing the wheels last night and am getting the tire mounted and balanced today...


Top view of gas tank too...

updates....

Both wheels, front sprocket, chain, and chain tensioner are in place...


This is something I always do to tidy up the rear of the bike; Basically, I remove extra links from the chain then set the chain tension with the axle in its furthest position forward in the axle plates. Next, I figure how the chain adjuster plate and nut will fit on the axle adjuster stud and set the rear wheel alignment. If necessary, I trim the axle plates so all of it fits together in more of a purposeful way. I'm sure I'm not the only one here that doesn't like seeing unused axle slot forward of the axle nut Here is the layout before trimming...


After trimming...


To clean the profile, instead of using the standard brake-stay strut, I use a kit I have made to convert the brake-stay to one similar to how the factory rigid works. Another block is welded onto the brake plate stud.


This is how it all fits together. There is enough clearance to allow for the thickness of powder coating.

There's something very satisfying about watching a bike go together the right way, rather than halfassed.
