Outside with oil tank and head light. The lower triple tree is flipped as some used to do back then when I was a boy, hence the compressed gaiters.[IMG][/IMG]

What does flipping the triple tree do?

It was a "custom trick" from easyriders mag vol.1 no.1 if I remember right. Because the underside of the triple tree is smooth and nice looking and the topside has that 3/4" ridge around that is hard to polish it was suggested to remove the stem and flip it over and then weld the stem back in. Maybe looks better on a 16"over glide but does not do anything for me in a stock type arrangement. This is the first time I have seen a bike with such a tree since that tech story 48 years ago.

Hello,
I believe the idea behind flipping was to gain stability when running a long fork by decreasing the free length of the fork tubes and also to gain a cleaner look. My opinion is that the increased stability is marginal and the cleaner look really is the thing. Nevertheless, I used to run a chopper, and I liked the modified yoke because it made me nostalgic, so I kept it.
Now when I am buildinga new bike, reuse of old parts laying on the shelf is a way to save cost, and also I prefer old parts and I like this one especially. It is not a stability thing, it is, I do not know what, just the way it came out for now.
If it looks bad, maybe I should buy a stock one then, we will see. Building a bike is much about trying and testing.

Right now the engineis under restoration. There are some tricky things to solve, I will try to make a write up when we are done. What is shown in the pictures are: Honing of the a new cylinder, the old ones was -0.60 and finished, honing of a connecting rod. Work with the oil trap which was faulty, block half with a new main bearing and lapped sealing surface. The oil return channel is plugged and also parts after cleaning.

I wasn't knocking your bike. It's part of your history and will be a talking point from now on. I look forward to the tank and exhaust choice.
