My last post didn't add the pics so here goes again. Sheetmetal is in the body shop, engine is nearly completed I had a valve train clearance issue and had to repair a rocker box. Springer needs to come back off, top clamp won't line up so I gotta align the neck. Exhaust is almost completed, I am still building the clamps. Lots of wok in to it so far, lots more needed.

I wish I, or someone had noticed I broke my front rocker box. I found it after I stabbed the motor. I disassembled the head in the frame, had the rocker box welded up and re-assembled.

I am about a year heavy, two years messing around in to the build now. It'll run now, I am not recovered enough from my crash to start it myself. Damned ready for the road. This is one years progress.

Looking great, however those "fender spears" have nothing to do with OEM parts.
