Cool looking build! One thing though, you may want to check your chain clearance on the oil tank. The chain will move ALOT on that length stretched rear section. The leafer seat rocks too BTW.
Cheers, Dan.

Ha, I love the story of this build already, I really hope it works out for you but if she is an old fashioned girl she won't wanna get chain oil on her dress so you have better be careful!

Build looks great and you love polishing far more than I do! What you've done looks the tits.

Keep updating, I'll be following this one.

Cheers Dan.

Thanks Dan! I measured my clearance to be 1 1/4" and I plan on running a chain tensioner of some sort. Does that sound like enough clearance? BUT I have also been throwing around the idea of running a preunit or tiger cub oil tank

Thanks Dan, maybe I should have her slip into her jeans and boots before we ride off into the sunset! And the polishing is a good form of relaxation (so I keep telling myself)

The cylinder barrel and head are still at the machine shop, but I got my .040 over JCC pistons in today with Hastings rings. Hopefully everything will be out of the machine shop by Saturday! I'm anxious to get this engine put together.

I worked late last night in the garage getting the top end mostly done. Instill have to bolt on the rocker boxes and torque everything down but it's getting close. I have to find a preunit rigid oil tank before I fire it up, along with a few other things.

Looks good.

Super slick mounting the ignition cylinder!

Thanks man! To be honest, I saw the idea on someone else's thread a while back. I liked the idea though

Default Re: The "Anywhere but Here" Build Thread

So, I had a break from school and thought I was going to be able to work on the bike nonstop, but I had a friend using the garage to build a coffee bar thing. Anyways, I got the top end put together and managed to trade my factory unit oil tank for a rigid preunit tank. However, I've been going back and forth on the positioning of the tank itself, because I read on a thread a while back about the height of the oil tank being related to pressure, flow, etc.. My questions: is this true? And, if this is true, how high does the oil tank need to be mounted in relation to the engine?

Here's what I have so far!

Thanks, UGOTBIT. I was more worried about the vertical height of the tank (another member set me straight though). I have the option of mounting it where it is or mounting it flush with the seat post due to how the oil lines come out of the tank. I mounted it where it is to make the space between the seat post and rear fender more evenly spaced, but I also like the look of lurkingclass's setup. I'll likely fab it up the other way to see how I like it and then go from there.

Well, I worked in the garage a little bit yesterday and remounted the oil tank to be even with the seat post. I like the look of it better and it raised the oil tank up a little bit. Im waiting on a small order of parts and miscellaneous things to get her running, but hopefully I can't test fire it before too long.

I bought a hexagonal drill bit to recess this nut into the tubing.

Nice job on the hex opening but then you had that special hex bit.......

Thanks Mike!

On a Monday micro-update note, I rebuilt my carb, gave it a little polish job, and welded in a screw-in cap for the oil bag. Baby steps, people. Baby steps.
