Looks very together and competent. It's just one f*ckin' thing after another, isn't it?

Thank you gentlemen. I try to do things "right" the first time around.


The shrink tubing has hot glue inside. That may stay put for a while but will be a "hot" mess if something goes wrong later. All connections have solder and a small loop should the need to re-terminate pop up.


Asphalt wire loom was chosen because I like the look when weathered. I also like getting tar all over everything. LOL.

For those who dont know, I'm a bargain hunter. I like good stuff cheap and cheap stuff practically free. That being said, I found a cheap fender. $29 to be exact. Didnt expect much and thats what I got. Not much. 6 out of 8 mounts "line up" without too much persuasion. Of course it wont line up with strut nub.Hang it on frame and its tweaked like a 3 week bender.


So what do you do with a shitty fender ? Hack it up !



2x3 board to twist fender into place. Leave overnight and it not awful, just crappy.







Eyeball some relatively square line for cuts.







Chop and tack.



On left side the radius isnt perfect. Right side is much better. Cheap ass fender is gonna mess with me the whole way. I need the correct bolts for mounting and see if I can get the POS on the struts AND the frame.

Spent the afternoon doing the bolt-hole-boogie on the rear fender.


Still a PIA to line up bolts. Not uncommon for import fenders. Here's the rub..even with most bolts in, on the frame, the whole fender is whack. There are pre-drilled holes for trim and plate mount that are off and the crown of fender has a visible twist.



Only solution I can come up with is cut out the threaded nut-certs from inside fender and see if it I can pull the damn thing into alignment. Twisting struts helps but doesn't overcome shitty manufacturing.



Or better yet, ditch this hunk of junk and find something better.

You found the difference in OEM and aftermarket. Sucks. Hardtail it hmmmm? A little stretch and a long front end?

Dump the Taiwain Ted shitpile and hit the swap meets. If you don't have any close by, or at all, let me know and I will sell you a OEM for 38.99 plus shipping. haha It may need touching up, or a hole or two welded from previous seat mounts, but it will fit the mounts and the shape will be correct.

I love my old sayings, and this one is one of my favorites. "If you can't afford to do it right the first time,,,, what makes you think you can afford to do it twice?" Sorry, but it is true. And to be honest, I am not sorry either. haha

Aftermarket stuff can be worse than having to scrub the old chrome off and paint it. I purchased a set of pan rocker covers for a customer, and had to redrill half the mounting holes to make them match the heads and d rings. Farking cheap shit is nothing like it used to be when we used to bitch about "made in Japan". Now, that stuff is golden.

Man that's the truth. The aftermarket stuff now is a far cry from the old repop stuff. Damn lawyers are to blame.....

You could easily make the warpage and asymmetry less obvious by breaking up the planar surfaces for a dazzle-camouflage effect. Hit the fender all over with a ball-peen hammer.

I havent given up completely.



Further investigation reveals right strut isnt straight w frame. No big deal, file the nub or shim at shock mount.



Rim is offset to left by at least a 1/4".


Shovel swingarm looks to have a slight twist up on right side.






I should have known. The whole thing has stupid(sucker punch) written all over it.








Tin work shelved for the time being and off to do round swinger and true up the rim.

Shovit..pm sent


Jaws..no matter how many times you suggest the long bike, it aint gonna happen. Too much shit in the garage. Wont fit.


Ratso... I like the way you think. Practical solutions in an unpossible world. Maybe some fringe to hide the ugly. Isnt that what long beards are for ?

I used to hide it with a beard . . .

Now I've cleaned up a bit in the name of getting paid. Moved to buttoned-down land a few years ago and compete with young Stanford grads in the workforce ;-0

Its been a while and this thread was in danger of the dreaded "3rd page". Bumped back to main page.


So some have read the pan cover re-bolt thread. In process to find a local (withing a 3 hour radius) repair shop. Emails out to shops in the Western Hemisphere. LOL. It seems some well advertised shops wont fix pan heads even tho they have photos on website. Other option is used head. Not much luck so far. That leaves "replica" heads. Teds that are actually available in the '63-'65 model have shovel exhaust ports and a minimum of $1k for a pair. STD heads are $2k. Add tax and shipping. That kind of money had me looking at S&S Shovel package that would include jugs/pistons. I know...pan people would give me a black eye for even considering that option.






Meanwhile, the ass end gets some much needed love.


Swingarm mounted fender












So we have a '90 XL fender in fiberglass. Used a handful of Lowbrow parts for mounts/struts. I tacked the welds and let my welder finish it off. Next door to the welder is an older gentleman who has a machine shop. Together, he and I bent the rods for struts, and he turned the Duo shock mounts so I could fit 12" Dyna shocks. Why Dyna shocks ? Cheap and still in great shape. New PM caliper as the FabKev bracket did not work with round swinger.



Last pic is a cover made to hide the battery. Dou oil tanks have the battery "flags" which made the cover supper easy. 90 degree bend on bottom for lower mounts and 2 bolt holes up top. I picked up a $17 dimple die off of Amazon and went for it.

That fender has very much a Jap vibe about it! in a good way of course! I'd try and look for a reconditioned head, they come up on instagram and other places fairly regular, later external oilers I would imagine will be fairly plentiful too.. then maybe when you can afford it get your current fixed as a spare!

Found locals who can make repairs to head(s). Said all the right things and asked all the right questions. Even found cracks at spark plug within seconds of handling. One will weld, another to do seats/valves.



Teardown shows intake spring/collar grinding on pan cover. May have something to do with seat being too damn deep.


Dont worry...I will ask a million questions when I get the bare heads back.
