chippin' away at things still...

got the bottom end of this motor back together (hope to be picking up the fresh cyl. barrels tonight) and then on to the top end. Got a seat pan made up (NATE!), still gotta make some mounts. Just couldn't leave well enough alone and ended up cutting the pipes down some. Got a rear mount made for the exhaust last night. Got all the old exhaust mounting shaved off, forward controls are shaved off. I don't know, there is a CHANCE still....

looks great man..hey why you mount the tail light on the right?? cause of the brake rod?? I always though they need to be on the left so when your in the right lane the passing traffic can see it better?? any thoughts on this ??

Good luck with those Emgo gaskets. They're crap at best.

Been hammering away on this thing so its absolutely ready for the road if i EVER get my cylinders back.

*Got a new kickstand made, and miraculously found my old block, got it all welded up and back on, works great.

* Got the seat mounted, scored some Ford valve springs from a greybeard up the road. Made the pivot, etc.



* Started on my 'new mids' I made forwards for the bike when i first built it, they looked like hell, i cut them off. Soo... i machined a piece of round stock to accept a worn cam bushing, and welded that to my motor mount, and then machined a shaft to fit the bush. I used an old Ironhead brake lever, which is about the right length, and havent decided if i will utilize the ears on the Harley part, or make an 'ear' on the back side of the shaft like a stock triumph. Bent up some round bar to make the foot peg as well, its about an inch and a half longer than stock, and super comfy! Obviously a bunch of cleanup and finish to do yet, but i'm pretty happy so far.

Got some more work done on the Quickee, got an electrics/battery box sorted out, and mounted, which meant i could finish cleaning up the frame and paint it. Pics aren't the best, but its raining and i was in a hurry. Dude is on a budget so paint is just Duplicolor Red Anodize, with some Fire Red lines here and there.





Also got the tank and fender painted up, semi gloss black w/ Fire Red & Metallic Silver.





This is for this bike:
