Ain't no shame in asking. I'd be proud to vote for that bike.

Hit us with the link ASAP. Can we vote multiple times/days?

Your entry looks like meat and potatoes not some goofy hor d'oeuvres platter.

This is my first time following but I can't resist, I have a 62 pan/shovel- round swingarm I've been changing for years. I really like your style, and am glad to be able to vote for you! Keep it up 👍

haven't posted in a while, been so busy cranking on this thing trying to make a show bike from nothing by june.... frame/tins are being painted now, everything is at the chrome shop, working on rebuilding drivetrain while that's going and hopefully it all comes back in time. Here's a little of what I've been up to.





Little cable ties to hold down the clutch cable. My hillbilly fixture.


more riggin to get the last of the holes drilled for internal wiring to the fuel tank console.

Went with mid controls kinda based off factory style. Missed a lot of pics of the process, but everything is cut from aluminum/ss on the mill/rotary table. My buddy made some of the round bits.






welded it up first because the thin wall would prob distort, then pressed in the bronze bushing. After it was pressed in, final sized out on the hone.



The left side peg is mounted off where the primary or bearing support plate usually goes because they're not used, open belt and short panhead mainshaft. No linkage to deal with because it'll be kickshift.



Mounted brake cylinder off trans

I really fucked up when I started to notch the front pipe where it sits pretty close to the frame. Cut the hole too big, and it looked terrible at first. Managed to cut a filler piece to size, hammer on it, had to get a twist in it too. Nightmare.




all the chrome parts pile, getting dipped right now. A lot of the other stuff will just be polished alum/ss.

Love the fab work on the foot controls and the pipes.

Just wondered what the trick is to get the rotary table centered to the mill spindle. I always struggle with getting mine done, just wondered if I'm missing an easy trick.

Thanks, Dan.
