This where I blasted that broken tap through with a plasma cutter,

CloudDiver 03-21-2013 10:19 PM

Then drilled it out clean...

CloudDiver 03-21-2013 10:21 PM

Welded in a 5/16" plug,

CloudDiver 03-21-2013 10:22 PM

Like it never fuckin happened...

CloudDiver 03-21-2013 10:23 PM

Re-drilled, and re-tapped... carefully this time.

Pure Fucking Magic

I think the #8-32 look better than the #6-32... stronger, and I can get replacements at the hardware store!

A little peek at the mill...

Polished the bottom end by hand (what a bee-otch!) Jugs and heads went to a polishing shop.

Intake Valves were Diiiirrrttty... running too rich.

I soaked them in CLR over night and got all that crap off, then forgot to take a pic after it was clean, doh!

Engine will be back together mid next week, about the same time the frame and small parts are back from Nickel... I put the second coat of Red-Kote in the tank tonight and it goes to body with the fender tomorrow. Some very light filler in a few places and epoxy primer is all they need.

Looks like this weekend will be pretty low-activity. Good, I need the rest!

CloudDiver 03-21-2013 10:37 PM

Oh, and one more thing...

Just because I fucking love this... but where oh where is it gonna go?

Sweet!! I really like the direction you are going with this build.

Aussiechop 03-25-2013 04:32 AM

Damn cool man, love your progress.

CloudDiver 03-25-2013 06:30 PM

Over the last week I've gotten some parts back from finishing; take a look.

Some of the Powder Coat, found a way better guy who does awesome work, very tough powder.

CloudDiver 03-25-2013 06:32 PM

Machine shop came back with the do-over on the rear brake lever and also did up the top motor mount. These are the last two things that will go to Powder Coat in the morning;

CloudDiver 03-25-2013 06:35 PM

I also got all the small parts back from Nickel, the frame will be ready wednesday or maybe tomorrow. I have the rocker arms and the top tree back for the Springer and I should be putting it back together but I took everything out to the shop in Buckeye this weekend and I really don't feel like making the drive right now, its grid lock going west on the 10 at this hour... Doh!

I'm a little fucking disturbed right now... As far as I can tell from there is no 'general' bike show/competition, all they are doing is 'Baddest Bagger in the West'.... Well fuck, if that's the case I'm going to slap a saddle bag on the left side and show them what the fuck is up!

Fuckin baggers!... I had a nice ass Road King from 07 to the spring of 12... I'm fucking over it. Shit, maybe I should have kept that bitch and entered two bikes!
