Re: Plating in a neck correctly

TIG or MIG is probably the preferred method of welding. I'd cut the patches to fit then start by tack welding the corners in a crisscross pattern. Do both sides of the frame so you don't find the...

Re: A quality Bates-type headlight

Weight is not your friend. If you don't mind the look, LEDs are generally lighter than a sealed beam headlamp. Mounting the headlight so it sits above the bracket instead of hanging from it also cuts...

Re: Bench Grinder

Fine grain aluminum oxide for HSS cutters. "green" Silicon Carbide for carbide cutters.
And keep the green stone for carbide only, the aluminum oxide wheel for HSS only.

Re: Help identifying rear stand

I've got parts manuals back to 1913 and none of the rear stands listed in them are like yours.

Hope this helps.

Re: 5 year project done.

Got the last of the bugs worked out of my board tracker project. Did the artwork on the tank then went over it with some rubbing compound to give it an aged and weathered look.
The Shinkos are far...

Re: '71 H-D scrap pile chop build

As a fellow fabricator, my hat's off to you. Not too many true builders out there these days, most folks just want to 'accessorize'.
I finished a 5 year Harley 'barn find board tracker' project and...

Re: Selling a bike on eBay

From personal experience;
Unfortunately there are unscrupulous buyers out there and you need to protect yourself. Don't want the buyer claiming the bike wasn't "as advertised". Or beating it to...

Re: Atlas Cycle Accessories

Not sure about Atlas but I have a couple of accessory catalog reprints that have stuff for Harleys, Indians, Excelsiors, to name a few from several different manufacturers. I found the reprints on...

Re: 5 year project done.

The front end is my own concoction. I copied the look of the early JD style springers but widened it to accept a modern ironhead drum and hub. Found a set of off-the-shelf rockers, had the springs...

5 year project done.

Been a while since I was here. Finally finished the project bike. Getting my 1921 H-D board tracker up and running, finding and curing bugs and design flaws. Test riding this thing to find problems...

Re: New member from the west.

Thanks for the kind words. It's a fun project and I'm even learning a thing or two.
