Well...shit.

Axle and triple set I ordered showed up today. Just one problem. This isn't what I ordered..... the brighter pic is the one I actually ordered.

Good news at least is that at least it's still an EN450 lower. They sent me the one from a different listing. I needed the complete set. I'll have /some/ fitment idea tomorrow when I go back to the shop.

Decided to go back tonight after dinner. Did a little mockup. Not bad, got a decent idea where things are.

EN450 stem is very much long enough, unlike the GS stem. Enough threads for both threaded collars and then some. Didn't have the top triple, so I kinda ghetto mocked up the GS upper so I could see about where things would sit. I like it.

Used one of my large ratchets to sort of mockup where the forks would be. Turn radius will be decent.

Just need to have the seller send me the right parts, and then save up the money for the forks.

Was browsing my emails from Pinterest (dont ask...) and came across a bike that is actually not too terribly far from the current build direction. Or more accurately the current direction is a cross between the two bikes in the pics.

I like how the Harley looks for the most part, though I want far less space between the tire and fender at the rear, so lower the rear, and then combine it with the dead basics of the chopper and you get closer to where I want this to be.

Upper triple should be here in the next couple days. Gonna dig out the aircraft pedals I got from Mongo and start working on mounting those. Also need to get all my small parts together and start building the wiring out.

Need to find a machinist to do a little carving for me. Cush drive still needs the inside cleaned up so it sits flush, and I need to work on the axle spacers. Want to at least get the rear end done so that I have some sort of progress.

Of course it does! Sorry for such a slow reply. My internet connection sucks at times and I don't get to browse the forum as much as I want to. Excuses...

I ain't done shit........







But if things go well, I might be bringing a ridable bike home in the near future. Dealer near me has a Honda Pacific Coast for sale. I've always though they were a sleek looking bike. 800cc vtwin, 5 spd shaft drive, decent highway bikes I gather.

We'll see what happens.....

I just wanna be able to throw a leg and go. I love projects, but I miss riding. I wanna just get something, and ride the fucker. Got my Mustang up for sale, plus I've got a 401k I can cash out from a job I just left (I'll never contribute to that account otherwise, might as well just get my cash out), and then bonus at the day job come December. Truck needs tires, but after that, bike.........
