Been too busy with little girl softball to get much done. My china bracket came in and I built a little tab and coped it to the frame tubing. I haven't had a chance to weld it on yet.

Its been a bit since i put down an update. I've got a lot of progress over the last couple months.

Here is the whole bike broke down into a pile of parts. Frame got painted black around this time. I decided to assemble it on the floor since it would be hard to get off the table as a whole bike.



I got the wheels and front end put back on the frame.




I started the wiring. I used scooters simple wiring harness. It was well labeled and the directions were clear. The difficult part is it was still a giant fucking pile of wires which was a little daunting to start. I mounted all the breakers, starter relay, ign switch and hi-low beam switch all on the oil tank. That kept the wires hidding and mostly out of the weather.



Wires getting run around. I didn't run them through the frame because i want to get to them if i need to.





Brake Light works!



Wires were all run through wire sheathing to keep it clean looking. I soldered every connection and heat shrinked them to seal them as best i could.



Headlight works!



Ignition all wired up and put together




Wiring almost done.

Getting the clutch put together.



Wiring done, or so i thought, and chain on with the fender.



Exhaust and air cleaner installed.



This picture shows the color a lot better. Shift linkage on and brakes are plumbed.



All of the wiring done, throttle cables done, brakes plumed and bleed, getting ready to hook up the clutch cable.



Added a finishing touch before test firing the engine.



Here it is, running, with my big ass sitting on it. Fits me pretty good and its SOOOOOOOO LOUD!

So the only thing really keeping me from riding this thing is not having a clutch push rod. There's a few little things i need to finish as well but its running and seemingly ready to ride.

A few of the things i screwed up. I used 8 guage wiring for the 2.0 kw starter and the ground to the frame. Evidently, the wires or connections weren't up to par with the amount of juice that thing pulls. The starter wire started smoking after holding the ign to start for a few seconds, and then the tail light popped. Evidently the light bulbs contact spring got used as additional ground and blew it up.

I replaced the starter and ground wires with 2 awg marine grade cables and replaced the tail light. Everything seems happy now.

I emailed John at scooters to ask what push rod i need. Once i get that and put it in we should have some pictures of an inaugural ride!

Springers don't add rake like hydraulic forks do in the trees. The two most popular affordable springers are Hardbody and DNA. The hardbody has thicker front legs and one piece rear legs compared to the DNA. They are both similar in price.

Cufflink appears to be using a DNA springer and if you jump over to my build thread you can check out the Hardbody springer.

If I remember correctly the offset is 1.5". I used a right side drive frame so my trans/drive offsets are 0.

That's a DNA springer.

The trans offset sprocket I used was a .9xx from Vulcan. Just measure using a straight edge from your wheel sprocket to your trans mainshaft flange.

Its different for everyone due to your rear wheel and where it ends up. My offset is more due to me using a .58 dished 51 tooth sprocket.
