|Motor finally on a
rolling stand in the back of the truck. I just decided
to let someone who really knows motors check this baby
out before I bolted it into the frame.
|Oh yeah - here's that
funky grinded-out 5 speed stuck in a four speed frame.
Seems to fit pretty good, but maybe I'm just kidding
|Checking for fitment
- I got a chain drive sprocket on the softail 5-speed
trans and stuck my skinny BDL on the shaft.
Where did we leave off - I know
many, many months have gone by and several issues have been
solved and several other issues have cropped up. Anyway - let's
get back to building this mutant chop...

Some good stuff - my Nephew Colt ("The Bolt Man") and I spent
some quality time and actually did the finally assembly on the
five speed. Didn't take any pictures because I was actually too
damn busy building the thing. It went together pretty smooth
once I got a new bearing pressed into the case. I played it
right by the book, using the Harley manual and following it
pretty much step-by-step (ok, it wasn't for the correct year,
but I think it's pretty close, I hope).
