Ok,
I couldn't take it anymore I went to the garage after 3 pain pills.   Shhhhhh don't tell my wife! :-X   She worries about me enough.  Well i drilled the upper and lower front tube for my spot welds.  Had my buddy come and jig it up at his place and tacked the tubes.   The rear has the bolt in it just as a temp spacer.  I'll be replacing the rear tube in a few days.   Just some update photos.
-motor fits nicely now
-my spool mockup block lines up great with the 2" under line
-ride height looks great
 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Oh yeah I love metal flake!

small update.  Spool came in today.  Just some quick photos.
Planning on working on it tomorrow and get the frame welded up in the rear.

This is awesome man. I really dig it. Those old Trumpet frames are by far my favorite hardtails.

Depending on the final setup, a nice set of clip-ons would look killer on the front end. Real clean.

buff as shit.. what kind of seat are you thinkin? If you go with von's clip on plan, a small uncomfortable seat is a must.. salt racer style.. lookin' good none the less.

I'm picturing clips and ouch?  I think it'd make you/me to balled up on the thing.   Plus I want to use full length fork covers for a very clean look.   The bars on it are just for mockup as of right now.   
seat...seat...seat....I'll have to find one as well as a rear fender.

solo seat is an easy out.. find/make something awesome.. you seem pretty crafty.. I've got an old cobra seat from the 70s that goes part way up the fender that I might be willing to part with.

thanks twisty.   its just a non conical triumph hub laced to a 16" H-D hoop and a odd ball tire.   The old tire was dry rotted and wayyyyy to wide.
