Yeah, what he said.

BTW, I was wondering about what era that paint style harkens back to... late Seventies thru early-mid Eighties?

Hi guys been a while! So this things sat in my basement for a while, had a kid, found an engine for 200$ on Craigslist that ended up needing a complete rebuild which I don’t have the time for with 3 small kids (or the knowhow!). For the cost of the rebuild I figured I’d be able to buy a running bike and would then have a wealth of all the stock components to use or alter for the project. So I saved and waited and pulled the trigger finally 2 months ago. Managed to get the engine pulled and seated in the Radoff frame this past weekend. It fit in perfectly. Front and bottom motor mounts fit like a glove. The Doner bike was OIF so I scored a set of regular rear motor mount plated off eBay that don’t quite fit all of the bolts so I’m going to plug the holes and re drill this weekend.
Next on the list ive got some tinkering to mate a triumph t120 hub on an old invader to mate up right, and gotta bug a friend to fab and fit some internals on my front neck race for an internal stop. Here’s some photos! I’ll try to keep updating now that I’m rolling on this

Sooo cool! I've been helping a friend who is restoring a machine that was pinstriped by Yosemite Sam. He has been at it for a long, long time...it may get finished one of these years. Keep us posted please!

Parenthood before bike progress, family first. Good priorities. We always like to see the long-term projects come-along, with pics.

I don't know if this is something you might need, or use:
https://www.jockeyjournal.com/forum/...d.php?t=212118

which I have for sale. I also have several friends, from the same family, whose parents were BSA dealers in western NYS, and they still are active with British bikes, here's a resto-mod power egg posted elsewhere on the forum. This bike was bought new and raced, then sold, and many years-later, bought-back, restored and modded a bit. The bike appeared in a BSA ad nationally, here's the bike today.

Forgive the extremely slow nature of this build, with a 4 year old, 2 year old, and 4 month old, I’m lucky if I get out in the garage 2 hours a week...
The Bike is getting buttoned up. Finally got it off the lift last week and On the ground. Old AEE square springer needed a new neck stem, spacers internal stop etc etc,
Back wheels all snug, nothings straight yet- with the amount of molding and length of the bike I wasn’t able to get rear wheel aligned on the table.
That’s one of the goals this week.
Started cutting and mocking the pipes Friday night, by 2:30 am I was too drunk to weld anymore. Getting those all tacked is my other goal this week.
Besides getting my rear wheel lined up, gotta fab some foot pegs, finish pipes, seats getting upholstered by my buddy, some wiring, makin a tail light, and then jetting and stuff ...it’s getting close
This bikes gotta be done by April 18, come see it at the congregation show in NC!

You will get there. I was in the same boat when your bike was first built. Family ate several years (more than several really), I rode anything I could and kept picking away. I'm a fan of old gold like yours. Rolling art.
