Thanks everyone. I'm getting close, still need a seat and a clutch and looking for a 1/8th bsp petcock that's not a compete piece of crap. Meanwhile rolled it out of the garage to get a better look after sweating my ass off for a few hours. Nothing you haven't already seen but looks better off the lift and outside.

Awesome! What kind of seat are you thinking of running? My friend runs a slim cobra seat on his shovel, I think it would look great on your bike

How much over is that front end man? 6"? I have a springer on my pan but I do love a 35mm front end! maybe a change up at some point I can do!

Exactly what I'm thinking. I have a cobra seat pan ready for someone to work on...I've entertained the thought of getting my wife to do it, she does a great job with furniture upholstery.

Yessir it's 6 over 33.4mm, new franks tubes. I think a 35mm would look just a nice and definitely perform better. Funny thing is Ive always thought after awhile riding on this front end I might onr day want a springer...

Man that's rough! I'm sure that's fixable though!!

Springer is great, but they don't offer the same dampening and rebound a lot! hope that wheel is a simple fix man I need to see vids of this girl going!

Yeah maybe fixable, but it looks pretty thin all around to me...worried it might happen again and not on the work bench. I might just try and find a better 50 year old drum for peace of mind.

Putting a pin in it for now. Finished up and got it running. Bout shit myself when it finally roared to life. I'm waiting on a new petcock and gotta get legal before I can really ride it, but good enough for round the block. The board was an invaluable resource for me putting this together...lots of time spent searching and reading old threads as I worked through things. Thanks to all who looked, replied, and offered words of advice or encouragment.

Thought I'd share a pic from the weekend. Handles so much better with the stock tubes. Think I've about got it where I want. Yesterday was the first sunshine we've had in central texas in two weeks, happy to take advantage.

Bike looks great with the shorter tubes and fork covers. I just love that seat cover. As much as I love fur covers on bobjob solo seats. Well done.
