so ....picked up a 68 ironhead last month and the process of turning a safe stock bike into a dangerous little hood scoot have been slower than i would like. Time and money are all a bike needs to complete its destiny(along with a little love) and i only have one of those...time. With the recent rain the ol job has been slow, hence plenty o time and a lack of funds...BUT with some trades, deals, and some scrap metal heres what little we have done.
1. bro's lathed up neck cups to take new front end.
2. some picks of eli wolf and i making up a cats eye suspended headlight mount/ finished mount
3. eli and i making a new right side jockey shift.
so that buell a couple posts down is ridiculous, went to texas for christmas and new years (happy holidays by the way), and i took it out for a spin. 100+ in third gear, CRAZY... ride one some day, its a bit of a rush. Back to the beast for me though, a bit slower is good for me... Oh, messed up some rod bearings on the scoot, so pulled the motor out and took the lower end over to Bob at Bobs garage for a rebuild, hes throwin in some Andrews N4 cams, and porting some 1200 heads to put on... i'm gonna re-assemble this weekend.. so much for slow huh?
