Here I made a mount for the big headlamp. I think it goes well with the bike. Although I typically like microscopic headlights.

Here are my best creations

Little bobber new build

Worked today on brakes. Had old Grimeca calipers laying around, equal to brembo F08, dual piston 38mm , quite popular , used. multiple bikes. Made brackets for front and rear. Fab Kevin style. Steel, 1/4"
Indeed the front one - springer setup with the bushing that allows to spin .

Thanks. I have noticed they are quite popular on the bobbers and light- aluminum cast hollow inside. Perhaps spoked would be more period accurate, but I think they are maintenance drama.

I did a bit of research in the 16x 16 community(?imagine that exists)

These are firestone deluxe champion 500-16( or 5.0-16). What,s good- they are front and rear and no direction. There,s another version, ' Indian script'- unjustifiably more expensive.



I find coker-beck 500-16 to be more good looking in their thread pattern , but they are a bit less tall.
Avon sm mark 5.00-16 is also good looking, but only exists as rear( I guess one might use it for front as well?)

I was afraid that my clearance would be too low, so panicked and went firestones, although the difference is not that substantial.

I hope it,s helpful. Look at coker site.

Haha! Just 16x 3", impressive? The tall tire profile makes it look fat.

By the way, 500x 16 translates into like 130-140 x16.

Got rear chain , fine tuned the alignment , spacing.
Ordered bronze bushings 2 kinds flat aluminum bar 1/2" and 4 spacers to make the jackshaft housing.


Made front gas tank bracket, I like the way the tank almost hugs the engine. On weekends will make the rear mount.
Additional benefit, absolutely no need for fork stops, goes all the way to the original cast harley stops against the frame without hitting anything.
The little fucker can make a tight turn. Ain,t no chopper!!!!

Routed the foot clutch cable( indeed suicide shift, what else???)need to make a bracket , cable holder.
Ordered a beautiful aluminum fender from blue collar choppers, 5 5/8" wide and 13" radius that should be very nicely wrapped around the rear tire.

Good progress.

Finished the tank mount.

Worked in my foot clutch, picked up the least distressing route for the cable in this buid
Clutch spring is coper colored, some kind of extran duty...I wonder how somebody could pull it by hand? The cable's banjo a is attached at 1.5" from pivot....it gives me decent leverage . Adjusted the clutch, good 1/4"move of the pressure plate out. I,m happy.

Designed again 1 foot master+ from and rear caliper brake system. Without the auto clutch, will see how it goes, I might need to split and put the hand master ....
Once all the banjos, brake switch , bolts come in , I will bless the brakes. I hope I estimated 5/16 master to be good.

Redid the leather seat as well...

Well, here,s my second attempt in upholstery.

My sister was pain in the ass the other day...so I thought it,s time to fix those ugly bumps on my seat...I ripped out the original bumpy foam and used one of my daughter,s 1/2 " thick square colored interlocking mats

Now I think it looks much better. Besides- no glue. Just bolt on.




Guess what,s supporting the springs ?..........1 1/4 " aluminum handlebar raisers. Can adjust their angle., move seat forward and back( moving the T- bar as well.)

She is coming alone...

Well, I have the brakes.

As usual , I have 1 foot master and front and rear hooked to it.
This time both calipers are equal 38mm dual piston Grimeca Brembo f08. Don,t know if I will need the proportional valve to shift the ratio from 50/50 to 65-75/ 35-25.
I,m not an aggressive rider, perhaps it wouldn,t matter that much

Initially I tried and bleed with 5/8 master, but it was too small of a bore. In the past I had used dual Grimeca with hand master cylinder 3/4 but it was somewhat stiff , perhaps hand lever was weak point.


I gave it a chance again hoping I won,t need to look for 11/16 master. Somehow my huge foot pedal eliminated that effort with the 3/4 master, pedal gains gradual effort during it,s travel, and brakes work good, as it seems(the street will show).

I love kelsey hayes master cylinders, they are simple and cheap and never failed me.

I don,t know why bleeding brakes such a drama for some? With my big syringe and couple tubes I bleed any combination of calipers and masters in any position pretty easily.
