Cloud, I gotta say, you are one busy mofo and you do nice work! My hat's off to ya bro, looking forward to seeing how this bitch turns out.

Oh and to "flysocal" it isn't that Jesse will not fix the known issue. It is just that he wants to be able to easily recognize who has a used WCC kickstand that is still in working order. That way he knows the posers and dumb asses from the real fockers. See if someone’s "balls fall out" he doesn’t want to associate with them

Yup, both my Chassis Design Co. Kickstands have that feature. Thanks for the heads up. Another reason to stick with these kick stands vs WCC, besides the whole half the price part!

Thanks dude... I'm pretty happy with how this build is going. I have to thank everyone here that I have learned from and I also learned so much from my first build that this one is going way better.

I've become a perfectionist on how everything is done, especially since the frame will be chrome any flaws will stand out more. I finished all the fender mounting bungs last night. I took over 6 hours doing it. I didn't have to cut any bungs off but I did break one of the tacks on 3 of them because they weren't level or square on the frame... heat was moving them a little. Lesson learned, and I should have known this... after the first tack check it again! Far easier to twist the bung a little on one tack than have to cut the 2nd tack to reposition!

So like I said above I finished the fender mounting last night. Today I'll mount the kick stand and then weld on the bung for the front springer brake bracket heim joint to the rear tube of the fork. Hopefully I'll get to the tank mounts as well. That should be it for fabrication.
My goal is to pull the engine, primary, and trans from the frame by Sunday night. The motor can go to my engine tuner Mark. He is an independent V-Twin guru here in Phoenix and comes highly recommended. He'll tear down the top end for new gaskets and I'll take the opportunity to get everything polished.
With the frame empty I can do the finish welding, clean up, and go to chrome by next week!

I didn't get too much done this past weekend... motor and driveline are still in the frame. I should get my Chassis Design Co battery box this week and once I get the battery tray welded in then I can remove the drive line. I did get the kick stand mounted and fiddled around with the fender some more. I was pretty beat this weekend and had too many distractions and delays... Anyway, I rolled her outside to check the kickstand lean and get some pictures in the sun.

Thanks! I think the before and after pics are going to be pretty intense!

As far as 'secret weapon' parts on this bike, I do have a few in the skunk works.
I can't take credit for this because this particular feature that was already on the frame, but remember the two welded tube ends on the front of the backbone where the wires came out? Well, as you can see in the pic above the throttle cable goes down in there perfectly. With the use of a Magnum BYO brake line kit my hydraulic clutch line will also go down the back bone, out into the battery box and follow the oil lines to the front of trans, or back if I get a rear feed. The only wires through the back bone will be the headlight and will share space on the throttle cable side.

3 inch, but I almost wish I had 2 inch... easy to swap out if I want to.

I like everything. Springer is perfect, like the stretch. Looks like a chopper. Wheels are perfect. Seat springs are risky (can make a bike look like shit) but you pulled it off. Tank fit the bike and will give you some capacity for 100+ legs. The pipes are a good compromise between old and new school. 2/1 makes a bike look modern and doesn't suit an old school springer IMO, not sure if you're still chopping these pipes for a 2/1. I like the belt final drive, makes setup more difficult as I found out but makes for a more thoughtful custom. Decided on paint scheme yet?

Any word from Hot Dog? Can't wait to see the paint job on your other build.
