Yes, that Paint Job and Hiddious Bondo Job were done in 1977 by Myself, I have been wanting to build this bike for years,MANY years... it layed dormant while I had and ran other bikes, raised 2 kids, you know the rest.. Concentrating on the Motor then I will go bonkers on the Rest..Very excited about the rebuild, could use a Bucket full of Funds but Can't We All..
Will add forum member 'chevelle' machined the late to early fork stem as I am hell bent on good brakes and this Nightster Fork should do me well..
I will add as I go..

WOW! That motor gives me wood. Curious, how long did it take to polish those cases? Looks like it'll be a beautiful hot rod when done.
Over 80 hours, most was done years ago by a Guy Named 'Night Train', I continued to clean them up after years of sitting, some weld work... I would never do this again, Bead Blasting works for me... Thanks

Looks fantastic so far Monte!
Is the matte grey glass bead or paint?
Chevelle, the Cam Cov looked like crap bead blasted so I took DEI Hi Temp Silver that drys Dull, then located Hi Temp VHT Satin Clear, by spaying it from a foot away it kinda fogged the paint, the result is what you see, the Theme of the Bike will be Black and Silver, more Black powder coating rather than Chrome, and as you are aware 'Chrome won't get you Home'.. hope all is well up there in MA
