Well we made it, my old trailer was just fine cruising at 80. I haven't done forums in ages so this may take a couple of tries on the old pc.
Got the wee little bike unloaded and here is where it sits.




Originally I was going to sketch out my plan for this build but it was my nan's funeral on monday and I had to watch the thing on my computer instead of being there in person. I decided I would just do something, so I whipped out the trusty grinder and started removing all the extra tabs and shit around the frame.


Some of the hurdles that I need to cross are finding parts. I left in a hurry and parts got placed in "safe places that I'll totally remember". Big on the notoriously missing list are the axles and spacers.

A lot of things have changed on what I want to do with this project in the last couple years. I have had a lot of time to ponder. The main thing is that I am no longer making this a leaner hack. As cool as that would be, I plan to do my fair share of dirt roads and camping with this rig as well as some winter riding.
I'm planning on a more of a prewar bobber feel.
Small budget but I intend to peck away at it and I am not in any rush. As long as its moving forward then I will be happy.

Got a smidge of work done late last night. I had recalled draining the coolant at some point and discovered that was not the case when I went to remove the radiator.

The fill tube and the port for the overflow would fowl the body work I have planned for here.

I discovered that the rad is brass so I about .5 inch and gave it a slight angle.
I then took the left over piece of brass and forged it up to fit as a collar.






Ill run to the store today and get some 60 40 solder and flux and some caps to pressure test my work.

God damn I miss this forum. I’ve been researching removing the linked brakes. I walked into a goldwing forum and just got a dozen people telling me that gold wings are perfect and I just need to learn to ride.
I’m slowly developing a plan for that. I found the axles but I’m missing a spacer on the front and the rear brake caliper and mount. I think I may make up some temp spacers from ally just to make it a roller.

Kinda noticed the same thing. If I post any of my doings on other forums I get a ton of replies why not to do that. On this forum I get replies on HOW not to do that

That’s looking more and more likely, I didn’t realize that the front two calipers have two different bore sizes. I was looking to see if anyone else had found an easy way around it.

Fucking around with cardboard in the wee hours. I've been working crazy hours so haven't been on this much


But I did make a fancy rolling stand that sorta rolls for my bandsaw. I forgot how satisfying it is to use that thing.
