I tried two different batteries on my build in an effort to reduce weight.
A late model model Sporty battery, and a Shorai Lithium.
Both turned the motor ONCE and then slowly crapped out.
They didn't have the stored grunt so had to go back to the MASSIVE FLH battery. Sadly. Would have loved to loose the 10kg of weight.

well havent posted in a while.. havent had time to mess with the bike..but im getting on it now. at this point its august or bust.. Got a nice promotion and big raise so im throwing what i can at the bike..did I mention, im dying to ride this?? Not 100%sure about the tank and fender.. but ill worry about that this winter whe ni have it painted. well professionally painted.. im doing a rattle can job on it till then..
We are making a new sissy bar, fender brackets for front of rear fender, which means ill be using the skinny fender. Kinda dug that one best anyway.put on the manual solenoid just need to adjust it and wire it up. got new tread for the back and polished up a spoke rim for it. I wasnt digging the fatboy rim. Anyway not a whole lot ,but im back working on it.




primered then scotched brited, then painted some metallic blue from home depot

found some paint there called glitter..figured what the hell..close enough to flake in a can for me..



did a lite coat over the blue metallic, then let it dry then did another coat of the glitter waited for that to dry then did a light coat of metallic blue then a very light coat of glitter scuffed it and clear coated.. yeah i have absolutely no friggin idea what im doing.. so im just going with what looks ok at the moment
but it looks good enough for me till i can get it in a paintshop..

did some wet sanding with 600 grit did another coat of clear..i think im going to wet sand it one more time then buff it up see how it looks, so far pretty happy how it looks..think i got 40 bucks in paint and sandpaper..Might go with something darker when i get it repainted this winter..


still got to wet sand and possible one more coat of clear on rear fender, but i couldnt resist putting it on to see how it looked.

today we got the spoke rim mounted, Friend made up some spacers and we got it centered and made sure the chain fit. now we have to weld on new axle adjuster nuts. thats what happens when you buy chrome ones off ebay and the cheap ass chrome flakes off and binds in the threads and you have to snap it. new 3/8 all thread coupling nuts and stainless bolts will replace them. Bill took some measurements and will make up the fender mounts and start on sissy bar..im digging up parts and cleaning out the damn shed.. did i mention there is flakes of silver EVERYWHERE..
