Thanks for the support and good feedback. By the way, that hammer is my most valuable tool, right behind my welder.

well, got a little bit done last night. I got my motor and transmission in and lined up.



I also got my model a tail light in the mail yesterday, so had to see what that was going to look like.



Got my 250 rear tire mounted on the wheel, and installed. I haven't centered it yet, but just wanted to get a peek at it. I am going to try to go with as much black as I can on this bike.



Here is a shot of my top motor mount that I made up a while back. Thought I would put it to some use. I like to run my coil under the transmission, so this one has some tubes to run the plug wires through. Still needs powdercoated, but you get the point.



And finally, as I stepped back at the end of the night, this was how the whole package was coming together. I like everything so far except the bars. I'm not totally sold on them yet, but we will see how they look with the headlight and everything else on the front end.

work is going a little slow today, so I decided to draw up how I am going to do my belt side mid control. Don't know if you will be able to make sense of it all, but I got it figured out. Now just need to find someone with a lathe to turn down some 1" stainless bar I have to 1/2" with a 1" end piece. Some bungking pivot bushing will be used to make sure that it all turns free. Hope it works!!!

thanks, and yes the rear is a 18 x 8.5 ultima king spoke, and the front is off the other bike but that one is a DNA 52 spoke. I will be getting as wide of a front tire as I can for the front. Does anyone know if a 180 on a 5.5 rim will fit in a wide glide front end?

a little more progress. Got my battery box from bungking and tacked it in where it will go. Still need to make a mount that spans the frame rails to bolt it to, but you get the picture.


Also got my fender struts from bungking, and got those put on


Got my tailight and turn signals on and where I want them. I decided to put them on the fender as far back as I could get so hopefully all of the drivers with their cell-phones will be able to take a break from texting and see that I am turning or stopping.


Also finished up mounting my oil tank on the downtube. Most stuff again from bungking. Those guys by the way are awesome for the little things that you need if you don't have access to a mill like most of us.


And Finally, I got the brake pedal made and mounted where it needs to be, and just need to finish it off by mounting my master cylinder. On the other side I got the sleeved bushings welded inside 1.25 tube and just need to finish the shift lever once I get the belt pulleys on for mock up.

Finished my exhaust up the other day. tried to go simple but not too short.




Here is how they dump out the back.


About mid-way through the build of the shift lever mid control.


Got the tab welded on the brake pedal, and the rear master cylinder mounted. Now just waiting on a linkage.


got the headlight and the hand controls and grips put on the front end. Doesn't look too bad now. Also, you can see that I need a 1.25" offset for the primary. My last build was a 300 so none were needed, but things get a little more interesting when you need offsets and whatnot.
