Some progress again. Today I got parts from the painters. I used local school which teaches painting to students since our garage is full and I didn't want to mess the garage. I must say that they did a good job. Now I can finally start putting the bike together. Next job is to lace the 18" front wheel and get the tyres on. Hopefully the bike's frame is rolling in a couple of weeks.

I also put black spring and kicker arm to the tranny. It looks decent now.

Nice build.
I would have left it yellow, that way nobody would steal it.

Some updates again. I mounted the Sparto tail light to repop fender. It looks good on bobbed fender and I adjusted the gas shut off valve. Great "tool" for lining the shut off valve was a free spotlight which has a laser also. We just put the laser under the valve (bottom of the tank) and looked from the top of the tank when the laser comes out from the gas shut-off valve hole. Little twisting from the bottom and it's now straight.

Friend who is making the engine said that he will finish it in a week. He also told that the engine had an Andrews J cam and Jims parts. I didn't know about them when I bought the bike

The cool yellow fog lamp was sealed beam so I had to put clear H4 style lamp inside the Unity cover. If I find working 12V 5-3/4" yellow fog lamp I will use it. Sealed beam or not.

That Firestone tyre looks good now. Not the best but sure that looks vintage

Well some updates again. Got the front wheel back together. Coker 4.00"x18"tire and Metzeler Motocross tube. Stainless spokes and OEM hub with Timken bearings.

I also got the engine back. The magneto needs only a 10mm spacer under the hold down tab and it's ready. Now it's hitting the case. I soda blasted the engine and painted the cylinders with VHT Engine Enamel (Satin Black). I bought OEM D-rings from a friend. They look much better than the pitting chrome one's I had. Engine looks now good for me.

I will start putting the bike together in next week. This week I only put the front end and the cadmium plated neck cups.

Here are some updates if anyone is interested.

Engine fitted fine and the transmission. Angle of the headlight needs to be done. You know why I am pleased with the tyre set up.

Next the primary and the clutch. Clutch is going to be used Primo Pro Clutch from a Shovelhead.

Great looking build. The 18" front wheel looks proper. I just picked up a set of spokes to lace one up for my '54.

Regards,
Geo.

I will put the 66 genny back together in autumn. I got Paughco's axed dual cap tank that I would like to use. Have to see how it looks installed.

Now I am going to finish the Pan first. Here is how it looks now. No deadlines. It's done when it's done

I have been busy for two days and I got all the electrics done. Weather was so cold and rainy so that remind me of usual building time, winter Electrics to Pan was a lot of easier than electrics to Softail with micro switches, high/low beams, starter switch etc. (that took 5-6 relays). There is a battery eliminator in the horse shoe oil tank and room for small 12V battery if it doesn't work well. I'll have to see.

I also shimmed the front motor mounts. The other took 0.3mm and the other didn't need any.

I hope to ride it in first week of July.
