Jesus, suicide clutch without auto...is something.

Well, I almost panicked and almost ordered the auto clutch for my harley basket from Gary, EFM( unfortunately is not bolt on which is a deterrent )

But today I took her again for a few short trips. The most difficult is to take off smoothly letting the clutch go. Shit , feel like a school girl in a drive test, stalled a couple of times...for crying out loud. Eventually I got used to the sweet spot and started to do it better and better.

Once you going...no problem. I think I will try to get used to it, it,s kinda fun.
*********

The bike is an animal. Chain drive whines , but in a funky way. Seems to be working good.

I,m still working on front brake with the master inside handlebar with the inverted lever.

****

Had to drill a bigger breathing hole in the gas tank cap...felt starvation. Much better.
**********
Also made this aerodynamic panoramic rear view mirror from an extra walmart fog light( 3 of them serve as my headlights on the Hannibal) and 2" mirror. It,s supported inside of the housing by a big spring from a used perf form filter. Took me. 10 minutes to make it.

Hidden master, no reservoir .

Well ,made my front brake separate from the rear...

Here,s my working prototype of master in the handlebar with the inverted lever.
Brake system is completely closed in. No reservoir .No extra fluid. The only way to bleed is reverse.

York auto clutch for BDL works on harley basket/ clutch

Was thinking about an auto clutch for the new build. I still don,t feel comfortable we the suicide clutch .

Gary from EFM , nice fella, sent me a picture of their clutch used on different harleys and offered me the pressure plate for $600. If it was bolt on, I might have used it- unfortunately it requires some machining and modifications of the existing basket)

If I hade to machine something, instead I looked at $260 York auto clutch designed for ...BDL and decided that I could take a chance might be able to make it work with the harley setup I have heard people complain about this clutch because it,s made in Asia .

Well, it,s bullshit . It,s adequately machined piece, I compared it to my efm setups for Ultima. Very competitive and the fraction of price.

Not just I have installed it on my harley basket, ( with Gary,s insight)I made it work very well and adjusting it,s rpm engagement not with different thickness steels, but with small 6 mounting spacers( which is much more flexible and economical option).
I think I might be able to make it work on ultima setup as well. Something to consider for the future.


I have have a blast of a day today riding the bike in short trips braking in the engine. Finally came to almost 100 miles mark ... Changed the oil.

The chain drive rocks!!!. I called the bike ROUGH'N'RAW

Will post pictures and perhaps video shortly.

Runs much quiter.

I have no problem with a lot of stuff from Asia.....especially stuff machined like that.....Usually the pain is getting the information...if you are buying direct...most of the time I say ..forget it....
keep us posted on the auto clutch performance....

Cool video and nice pics of the details of the bike!
Now I want to do detail shots.
Take care of those hands bro.
They look a little beat up after that work.

Thanks Donald. Need to start using surgical gloves while working on the bikes- don't want to scare my patients with the mechanic's hands:lol:

I'm rebuilding my primary chain bobber

I was nagged for a while that i had not tried instead of rigid frame- a swing arm frame - like in 1973-1983 shovel, 4 speed transmission etc.

I don't see many choppers - bobbers around based on that. Mostly rigids and softails.

I got me kraft tech frame k18001, a swingarm with adjustable shock mounts and now in the process of transplanting all the parts from by bobber onto it.
the front of the frame[ thank you Kraft Tech] fits evo up to 127" w/o modifications.
the rear is designed for 4 speed. I want there 5 speed. That's a task. It's not just a 5 into 4 mounting plate.

It's been done before, The transmission rear mounting side [ and primary] have to be notched for the swingarm pivot, sometimes loosing the rear 2 mounts for primary. Like this:




people got away w/o them claiming the front and starter mounts will hold the primary ok.
I'm lucky, because my chain drive setup[ requires transmission to be closer to engine than the frame seat post allows. Not a problem: Blow torch and hammering dented the post for the transmission cover to clear+ the mount slots are made longer.

Having done that, i have less half circle meat to remove from the transmission, hoping to keep the 2 original mounting holes.

Will try to work on it this weekend and attempt to put a couple of pictures

to be continued...

Does the 120 ci behave differently than the 127...? I have often wondered if the added compression to the 127 is worth the longevity..Does it effect the torque?

The bobbers are about 500lb. Gearing might be slightly different. But 127does feel torquier . Interesting my Hannibal Walz bike is heavier but has 113” s&s 11:1 compression ,feels as or more torquey than Rough’N’Raw with 120” Ultima

Here,s the rebuild update

[img]http://www.clubchopper.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=1761&pictureid=

Drive train is aligned, main shaft baring/ starter plate support are notched for the Swingarm pivot.
I have an adjustable bottom shocks attachments, moved all the way to the rear- the shocks are at their softest. I think it,s a bit more clearance in the back( like the rigid was). But when I sit- it dives leveling off in the rear.
