Well, I'm a little embarrassed to admit it, but I started this build more than 5 years ago. In fact, by the time I actually get it on the road it will have been 6 years since I first bought the pile. But hey, it's my first ever motorcycle. That ought to be worth something, right? Anyway, I started a thread a long time ago. Seemed better to just start over since the thing is actually coming together now. I'm going to post progress pics from where I started up to where I am now. Hey, after all, it has been almost 6 years. There's a bunch to post, so here goes nothin'.

This is what I bought. Man, what was I thinking? I got a clear title with it, which is worth a bunch in Illinois.

Then more time passed, the kids grew, I finished a VW project, blah, blah, blah… Finally got back to it and started fabricating some stuff.
Brake stay from a VW convertible top part.


Fender mount and other stuff turned on my newly acquired Southbend lathe.


I'm kind of proud of thee head steadies. Lots of failed attempts before I got it the way I wanted.



Lower mount for the oil bag.
