Got all my welding done last weekend, kept throwing the belt off the the primary so i broke it back down only to find the motor mounts were definitly drilled way out of position. I had to have them plugged, welded and redrilled, ligned the rear end and trans up perfectly and had to rotate the engine clocwise in the frame 5/16" to get it right. Also had to add a chunk of steel to the rear mount on the left to have room to get that bolt tightened down to something solid. All thats left now is wiring it up and getting it registered and I'm a 2 wheeled mother fucker next spring.

sweet looking- how much money do u have into it by now? How much by the end? Are you keeping that paint? It's fine the way it is. What do you think about building your own bike? Have you done it before? How do u know what to do? How do you know if you doing it right or wrong or what's next? What camera is that? That is a great resolution. High mega pixels - seriously.

Money about $12,500 i figure about anther $200.00 to complete it and its staying black primer. Never done it before but i have a friend that builds professionaly so he's been doing the welding and showed me how the drive line is supposed to be set up. Kodak easy share camera, pretty inexpensive i just learned how to use it by reading the directions, who woulda thought huh. Its not really tough but the right information and the right tools make all the difference. theres alot of shit that can be wrong with aftermarket parts and frames that can fuck you up that a layman wouldnt know to look for thats why i decided some professional help was the way to go. I had a shop space the front wheel and set up the brake, it would have failed and killed me for sure, the after merket brake rotor center hole was slightly larger than the index on the front hub and that would have shaken the shit out of me but the worst was the play, there was 1/8 inch sloppy end play and the combination of the 2 could have sent me over the handle bars let alone they didnt tighten the pinch bolts on the tree. Love those fuckin idiots. But i got it all together now and its time to run some wiring and set up for registration.

It's good you had it looked over by a pro builder at the end to tweek things that needed to be corrected before it was taken to the streets.

Here it is after 2 1/2 yrs. I handed my build over to Jake at Ultraviolence for fab work and final assembly. I wish I could say I built it all myself but I can't.

Hey 46rake your bike looks great. I like the dogbones, front end, oil filter and the open primary. Is that a NYC choppers open primary?? Bike looks mean & lean. Nice JOB.
