Rear lights, hmm. I see the plate/taillight idea. I like it, but to be legal on the signals I have to find some good indicators. I have looked on Ebay and found several but many are not DOT approved. I want small, but bright.. maybe LED's. Since I have the strut-less fender, I do not want to drill into that just yet for mounting. Who has ideas?

Ok, Oil tank brackets are in. I still cannot figure it out. I have tried all different ways to install this thing and does not fit.Granted, I do have to get the tabs welded on, but the brackets wont fit. Anyone got any advice for me?

P.s. I forgot to add the pictures... I will get to that in a min.

Here are the better pictures.





I cannot for the life of me figure this out. Its a horseshoe style oil tank. The brackets do not seem to fit anywhere. The weld on tabs can be figured out once I can understand how the rest mounts. The chrome bracket seems too thick to go in the front of the frame mount, and the support on the rear of the frame mount will not allow the mount bracket to fit there either. Anyone have a picture of how this works? Or an explanation.

Something else I found interesting. I do not know what this is.



It is mounted on the rt side below the transmission area, just behind the motor.

This last pic is the correct way for the rubber mounts to be attached. If you have to cut the mounting tabs off the frame and start over then do it.............I had to do that with mine................just one of the many joys of building your own bike.

Thanks for the replies. On the transmission mount, SoCal. And Hanger, for the comment on the oil pan, I was afraid of that. Oh well, its going to the weld soon, just another item on the fix list.

Took the bike apart today. I figured it was going to weld soon so I was getting it ready. I couldnt wait though and had to press in the swing arm bearings. They went in pretty easy, much easier than I expected. I did the long threaded bolt and sockets idea with a bit of lubricating spray. Installed the shocks to see how they would fit. All looks good.

While taking apart the bike, I took lots of pictures. Making a note of all placements and construction process. I am going to use the pics for a project I have with school. I have to do a website on an hobby or interest of my choice. So I am making it a blog like site.

good looking build. with the oil tank bracket...try the bracket in a variety of places. front of frame bracket, behind bracket...try switching the rubbers from top to bottom. oil tank bracket upside down......sooner or later it'll line up. I had the same issue with my dna
horseshoe before i switched out style of tank (just for looks that is )

I cut the brace on the back of the frame bracket.


Now the tank mounts from the back of the bracket. Now I cannot figure what holds the front of the oil tank up. Would this have anything to do with it?

I have the strutless rear fender with the built in supports. I was looking for some chrome or polished covers to appear like I have the standard supports. Do they make a cover for this support to resemble the real ones?

Its been a while, update time.

Here are some pics taken today. Still needing a lot of work. Seat, wiring, lights, controls and lots of small stuff. But I finally got here on her own wheels today. At least for a few minutes. Back on the stand tonight since I dont have a kickstand yet for her. Its been a very long time, and I almost gave up on her a few times. But the wheels made for a renewed hope. I am stoked again.

Originally ordered risers and mount bolts. Came in and found the risers were course thread and bolts were fine. Had to order the correct bolts. Came in today and mounted the handlebars. We have a bike looking like a bike now. Tomorrow I get to order the brakes and starter. Wife gets a bonus and has given me a huge chunk for the bike. Things are starting to move fast for me now. Pretty soon I will take it apart and paint it and do the final assembly. This year looks good.
