So I finally got a decent laptop so I can actually do internet shit without it crashing. A little hit to the wallet, but now I'm waiting on parts and fabbing the old freebies so it'll work out.




New Dixie Kick lever, the stock one was cracked and welded


Front Brake set up mocked up, need to rebuild the caliper and get the master still


Front half of the wiring harness is rewired and mounted


Also extended the $5 tweaker swingarm trident bar. still need to mount it and cut the height. Flux core did the trick with the off set weld.

Going through some of my olds man's photos, I found these of his '68 Trophy Sport and his '76 FXE. Too good not to share. The Triumph pics are from '72 and I think the FXE pic is from '77 or 8




 Nothing like a White Corbin Gentry seat!

So here's a shitty picture of the bike, and a first mock up of the "Mufflers"

I finally wrapped my head around the timing of the Dyna ignition and holy shit, it kicked over and idles pretty good on shit gas and starter fluid. I will change the gas tomorrow and let the battery charge, but this is a huge milestone for me.



The TC Brothers hard tail kit is in the mail too, I only want to re-do the top drop outs for now, just to get ahead on the fender/sissy/etc.

Cheers
