    Roland, can you take some detailed pictures of the back seat cowl. I'm doing the same thing on my project bike but I'm not sure how to proceed. Did you just drill holes into the seat foam then press fit some metal shims in there? Can I pick that stuff up at the local Home Depot? I'd appreciate...

    Just need to make some custom taillight and blinker brackets and weld them on the bike and it's all set. Next stop is starting her up for the first time!

    Just thought I'd post an update. I've been currently busy with work and life in general that it's been hard to post more updates but the good news is that the bike is almost complete. I've recently setup the old harness again and wired up all of the connections. Some of the pros of this...

    It's a lovely place. I definitely saw the Britten and I'd rather enjoy the moment rather than constantly take pictures. Once this project is finished I'll probably ride there again. Some of those twists look like fun!

    Got some more work done. Seat has been upholstered and engine has been mounted. Also, can you guys check my front axle and see if it's ok? I think the PO took an early 80s cb750 front wheel and setup dual discs with it. I've been hearing from other members from the SOHC4 site that the front axle...

    Damn nearly broke my back trying to get it off! This time around I bought some ratchet straps and a legit engine hoist and had a tight strap on the cylinders and another strap around the bottom that had a little more slack so the engine sat upright. I lifted it to the frame then had to lower the...

    Thanks! This weekend was busy. The girlfriend and I went to Solvang, CA and got to check out the motorcycle museum. They have some awesome bikes there! Took some pictures. Also was able to find the time Sunday and ended up mounting the engine on the frame...Thank god I had my big red Harbor...

    Luckily I came across some extra funds that helped out. :) I was very pleased with the sandblast.

    It turns out I had the front axle nut on backwards! It still sticks out a bit but I think it's a lot better than before. I don't know if it needs to be completely flush but it works. The forks seem to be right on the axle. I'm hoping this won't affect the ride. I also went on craigslist and...

    I think you're right. I checked the schematic and it looks like it's backwards. Stupid rookie mistake haha. I'll check and update as I go Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So I mounted the forks into the triple trees and put the front tire on, double checking the manual as I went along. I noticed that one side of the front axle sticks out about an inch. I'm thinking I assembled something wrong. Can someone please confirm?

    Went with a brat style seat rather than a cafe style. Much easier to make with the foam I had.
