Hahaha! I don't know what those guys are into these days. The only thing I know for sure is I'm not cool enough to be in that club.

Long bike update.
Fabricator Kevin made a slick stainless caliper bracket to work with this narrow springer setup.


Fender time. 13 gauge hand spun goodness laid out and ready to cut




All bungs were faced off as necessary so their faces would all recess 1/8" inboard of the plane of the upper and lower frame rails.


The chain guard made, cut and rear mount finished, front mount is yet to be done.


Here is the rear end somewhat put back together with the sissy bar held in position w/magnets. The sissy angle is the same as the downtubes.

OK, I can live with that sissy bar but need a full shot to confirm.

How did you build a long bike that doesn't make the Triumph engine look tiny and lonely? Really nice.

Haha! Me too! My shop is too narrow for my camera to get a full side pic of this long beast, I tried. I may have to roll it outside for the full effect.

Well, I'm not sure at this point. There will be some nice head steadies in some of the negative space up front, but at this point I'm working to get the tins sorted. And thanks!

Early days for this question Dan, but how many miles do you plan to put on this before handing it over?

Mississippi to Sturgis is 1388.4 miles. I just checked.

Is he the sort who is happy to do roadside oil changes and the like?

My bet he likes the ride better.

Of course you have to roll a loooong bike out for a good look. Thats the right time to really study it.

Before I release any bike, I put at least 150 shakedown miles on it. A trip of that length would require an oil change along the way, but nothing an Xpress Lube place couldn't handle. But all that is a mute point as the engine is not built yet (I am not building this engine) so can not be delivered in time for him to make the trip.

The roll-out will be happening this weekend, so we will see.

Until then, I got a few mundane things wrapped up. I built some head steadies, and since these will be more front and center I decided to make some counter bored bungs for the head steady studs/nuts, and a counter bored and blind bung for the back bone side of things. The angle they point up from the engine is the same as the tappet covers to maintain some continuity of the shapes involved around the engine. The studs are flush with the tops of the nuts and the nuts are just below being flush with the tops of my bungs. More pics will be posted in the next few days.

Update!
My band-saw shredded its belt so I was stuck doing not-tins related work this week. I got Fabricator Kevin's very well made caliper bracket installed. For it to work I made two stainless stepped bushings to position the bracket so the caliper would be centered on the rotor. The stay mount was a bit close to the caliper, so I had to die-grind out a recess in the caliper (glad I went with natural alloy finish on the caliper) to clear the heim joint head.




After much research and head scratching, I finally figured out how to put a front fender on this thing that doesn't stick out like a dog's balls. The issue is the HUGE amount of articulation this springer is capable of. With weight on the springer, the wheel STILL has over 5" of potential upward travel before the springs bind. So, mounting the fender on the front or rear legs of the springer would mean a 5"+ gap between the fender and tire....absolutely unacceptable.

So here is the plan.... Make a somewhat matching caliper bracket and brake stay strut for the right side, and mount the fender to it and the caliper bracket on the left. This setup will allow a snug mounted fender that will articulate WITH the wheel instead of in FEAR of it

^Ha, as I was reading this I came up with the same scenario as you for the mounting of the mudguard. The only difference was that you already had a way to do it where I was still in the theory stage!

Good plan as ever though Dan, this bike is crazy!

I was thinking the same thing Jaws. Maybe the bike is going to where the law requires one.
