Lay off the drugs dro!Its good that old version bike convert into new version or rebuild its all parts looking very strong specially engine of the bike is very good because new bikes engine is not much comfortable as compare to the old..
A buddy of mine is Building the engine for me (he has done this for a living for 50 years and im not paying him) We are just waiting for the jugs to come in. rebuilt bottem and top end and tranny cams im going to re work the carb once the engine comes back. I have it all just not with me lol. Actually supposed to call my grey beard in about an hour to see if the guy dropped off the jugs.Lookin good man. Do you have all the parts for the engine back?
Alright. well i spent about 5 hours in the garage today and when i step back and look real fast it doesnt seem like i made much progress. But i keep telling myself that its the little things that matter and i spend a lot of time on the details.
Anyways Today i got the fender cut to fit got the sissy bar finished and made the fender mount on the sissy bar and finagled some stuff to bolt the fender to the frame. And i made a headlight bracket. Which i just realized i forgot to prime with the rest of the stuff.....Ill do that in a little bit lol. Also if i can get ahold of my grey beard ill hopefully be picking my motor up tonight.
Didnt take a lot of pictures...here is the only one ive took today lol.
alright well i figured out my starting problem. didnt have the engine in.
So this weekend my engine finally got finished. went and picked it up saturday and made it look sorta kinda almost pretty. Then today when i got off work I went ahead and dropped the engine back in. Figured out a good way for one man to put these heavy ****s in. i dont have a lift and im not a weightlifter lol. here are a couple pictures for yalls enjoyment.
here is the engine after i made it look almost pretty.
First thing i did was wrap the rocker covers and then dead lift the engine and set on on the ground where i spread out a bunch of shop towels. and prop it up with a piece of wood so the engine sits even.
After that i just picked up the rolling frame and set it where i needed it to go. so freaking easy to do.
Put in the new bolts for the rear motor mounts and Lift her on up.
Now after that im just waiting to get paid so i can go buy what i need to wire her up. then lets hope to hell the starter solonoid works and she fires after a couple hours of fine tuning.
