yes, parts availability SUCKS, especially here in hawaii ! im going to change my stretched JJ 'villan' tank to this prism tank. threw down a black base coat over self etching primer first, then after a few hours in the sun i laid on some old lace and stickers....

hit it with krylon 'glitterblast' in hotpink, then pulled everything while it was still wet. just need to clearcoat it next. ( the spraymax2K clear is awesome--its a 2 part epoxy so once activated its use it or lose it, but its even gasoline drip resistant ! )

for $20 worth of spraybombs and 30 minutes messing around with the lace and tape and stuff i think it came out reet considering its all rattlecan...

I really like that glitter Blast paint.
Make sure to protect your paint job with MAX2K two part clear.
It is fuel PROOF paint and comes in a specially designed spray can. And when you activate the button on the bottom of the can ,it introduces the hardner.
I have used it and it work great!!

Do a little test on the bottom of the tank or on a separate item to make sure the clear is compatible.

bummer for me is, the only place locally that sells it is hi-line distributors, and its $28 a can........

this is an old schwinn 26" cruiser frame, with 20x3 rear and 16x1.5 front tires.
schedule 80 conduit hand turned to fit 2.5" up into original forks before welding, and 1/4x 3/4 flat barstock for braces.
18" apes, and 2 welded together seatposts with a double-cheeker seat.

previous frankenbike experiments have taught us to keep the lower rear frame rail close to parallel with the ground, and ONLY stretch the fork before the factory bend, never after. makes it ride 90% normal even thought it looks really whacky.

hey, its still a chopper...

i present this picture as proof that pigs can, indeed, fly...

I too couldn't log in for a long time. I sent an email to the admin a couple months ago asking to have my account fixed so I could access it again. I never heard anything back. Then today on my birthday I received an email from Club Chopper inviting me to return and when I tried to log it it worked. Thank you Club Chopper for fixing the problem.

Currently my Hardcore II is in the shop getting the carburetor rebuilt. Hadn't ridden it in a while and the needle valve was sticking and venting fuel all over the floor when I turned on the fuel. Hopefully, I will be back riding soon.

pretty great thread here!

Just picked up a 2004 HCII build from a 2nd owner, in excellent condition! (very excited!)

Few questions I have so far (newbie to customs):
1) looking for replacement parts, I see a lot of references to Harley compatibilities, FXR or FXST? and if my assumptions are right, FXST, what year timeframe? 1999 below and 2000+.

2) Current forward controls (stock supreme legends), shifter seems really loose. I've tried tightening, however it seems the spline or bushing is worn and has a lot of play

3) Since the threads are so old.. so many pics and attachments are missing now. Is there any reference material anyone still has? (Manuals, build notes, instructions, torque charts/explodes?)

Any other tips or suggestions for a new HCII owner in 2017?? lol!


thx,
mike

This thread was pretty active back around the mid 2000's about 2005 when I build mine. We all shared ideas and helped each other with problems and questions. There were no real instructions provided with the kits. I believe they came from Custom Chrome and most parts were available through them. Most add-on that fit the Harley big twins fit the Revtech engines. I'm rarely on here anymore, just stopping in today to search for some troubleshooting on a battery/starter issue. Seems like not enough power to turn the starter and the positive terminal and wire heats up and begins to smoke. Suspect maybe a bad starter, but not sure. I just replaced the battery, so that is new. Replaced the starter a couple years ago.
