ok..small update.. took the bike back to the shop and got a few little things done..then boss said hell with it leave the bike there and I can work on it when I finish work and during the weekends,till its done just push it in and out of the shop so its not in the way.. so instead of having to haul it back and forth its got a new home for a bit. So first thing I did was make the axle spacers to the right size. got the chain all lined up spund the dished sprocket around so it gave more on the right side for the caliper. tomorrow making a caliper bracket to mount ot the spacer and frame. once that was done I put the oil tank in to get an idea how much room I had and well thats the part that sucks.. seems we thought the battery could fit below the tank.. but with the chain in place it pushes that fxe battery over the bottom rail to close to the exhaust. NOT happy either I got to find a smaller battery.. with enough crank to push over the 93 inch.. or I have to push the oil tank over to the seat post and weld a battery box to the oil tank..not what I really wanted...or third option is to mount the batter box to the left side of the bike behind the primary and put the tag and taillight behind that.. not to fond of that idea either.. so anyway thats where Im at.. tomorrow its fab up the caliper mount.. get the fender where Im happy ..and possibly the sissy bar.. oh and heres a few pics for the hell of it..



and because a few people commented about the shop.. heres a quick picture of one corner of it with all the fun toys..

yeah the flame derby is on the list of things to be replaced. .as well as make a new points cover.. . not sure how many quarts for the tank yet.. hoping 3 1/2 at least.. the inside diameter is 5 inches and its 10 !/2 inches long. havent put the sides or anything on yet because I had a funny feeling about the battery and figures I may end up welding the box to the tank.. looks like its a good thing I did..

Why not put the battery down behind the trans? You should have more then enough room to make it fit and still look good.

the battery does not fit there.. .. because I have a stock size fxe style battery , when I put it behind the trans the top of it hits the bottom of the starter. the battery is like 7 long, 6 high and almost 4 wide.and thats with out a battery box. the bike is kick and electric.. but after years of kicking over my 68 xlch my knees arnt what they used to be so on those really shitty day I like to have that button option to start up that 93 inch motor.I could move the fender back.. but it have to move back nearly an inch or more to clear the starter..and that kills some chain adjustment. plus the size of the battery now it will have to stick over the bottom rails because the other side has the chain. Right now Im just looking around to see if I can find a smaller in size battery.. but with decent cranking amps to turn over the motor.. I think the one I have now is rated ar 240.. and if it doesnt start in 3 or 4 cranks its dead. I also bought a manual solenoid ..hoping that might give it a bit more juice. will just have to see..
