Default Summer is pretty much over

Ok, so summer pretty much happened and I put the bike on the back burner for a while. I picked up a daily rider (100 mile round trip to work) so definitely got some miles in. Now for the bike. Here is the latest piece to the puzzle. My buddy and I started with billet aluminum and made the new fender brackets for the 23 inch front and custom fender. The pictures aren't the greatest, but they are contrast cut and match the rims design almost perfect. Lots of welding and grinding on this. (All the credit has to go to my buddy for the design and work on this one) They will mount directly to the front end and all hardware will be hidden on the inside of the fender, and spacing is enough for 1 washer on each side.





Here is a picture of the rim on the bike just for reference.

Subscribed from the beginning. Awesome build. Disagree with JtB about constraining yourself to a restoration of the old technology ride. I enjoy seeing restorations keeping to the original design in some bikes, some cars, some houses. But the planet moves on. The supply of restorations should not exceed demand. The demand is a thin special market.

Instead I prefer renovations that equal or exceed the new technology. I enjoy renovations that express the individuality of the owner & builder. My personal preference is for renovations that car-folks call "outlaws." Looks like what it "was." Looks like it came from the factory. Looks like it is a natural evolution of the original. Outperforms the original and the current new from the factory.

So, keep on with the build. Interesting to follow...

This thread has been an interesting read...I'm thinking there is no updates because he filed bankruptcy after all the money that went into this project!!

Thumbs up I'm finally back to building!

So after quite a long hiatus, I am finally getting some time to start back up on the build and hopefully finish this thing! Since my last update, I have had a few things going on in the life. I am now the proud daddy of a beautiful set of twins. They are doing well now, but they decided to show up 3 months early and then spent 4 months in the NICU, after having the wife spend almost 2 months in the hospital due to the pregnancy. New job and all that other good stuff too, but no more frivolous details. I purchased the air ride set up from Summit racing that I am planning on using, and have picked up lathe and milling machine to help with a few of the special pieces I need to complete for the old girl. Anyway, expect a few updates and some pictures in the next few weeks (months/years)

Too bad. I have the Factory Confortflex seat set up that was an accessory on the early Rubber Glides.
Can be set to ride on the spring set, or locked down. Nice Harley Buddy Seat ride too.
I can't use it because it does not fit the new frame.
