This is where it begins -- New Pictures Add

I'm not sure this is really a "New" build, but it is new to me. I found a Kraft-Tech framed, S&S powered bike that needed a lot of TLC. Doesn't seem to have been abused, but it certainly was neglected. I believe the bike may have sat outside under a bike cover.

At any rate, I bought it, loaded on a trailer to my shop and I stripped it to the frame. The yellow is the bare frame I started with. The other frame is what it looked like from the paint shop. I hope to add pics as I progress.

Perhaps this works -- The light spots on the purple frame is from the flash.

Pictures added

It is starting to come together. I found a bad engine compensator, so that was changed out. Now trying to figure out the wiring. I labeled all my connector, but failed to take a picture of how it was all routed. Live and learn

The painter did a great
