Your bike makes me want to find some 70's Japanese bike and build a bobber SO bad.  I hate this.

You could find someone's stalled half assed bobber project on Craigslist for cheap and finish it proper.

Yup.  Lots of local project bikes turning up these days. 

The bike looks great BTW!   Interested in how you feel about the rear suspension capability after you get some miles on it.

I'm interested in how it will behave myself.  I think I have the upper rear springs firm enough that it should "act" like a hard tail.  I can always adjust the spring rate once I get some seat time.

I had a Sportster with a Santee frame years ago (basket when I bought, basket when I sold it). Anyway, similar rear suspension. The rumor was that these type of frames would lay a J shaped black mark on burnout. Please do report back when the time comes.

A little progress on Friday.  Seat mounted and  gauges and their mount ready for clear coat once it warms up again.

I picked up a vintage Jockey shift/Suicide clutch set up for Goldie.  Had a little time tonight, so I started to fit it up.  I really like it!

Man, that thing looks great- it's like the best parts of rat rodding with the exposed metal but it has class and talent put into it.

For the time being, This will be the exhaust due to budget.

In the future, I hope to run this one...

Its been too long!!  Hopefully I can get this back on the workbench soon and get her finished!  until then, lets catch up a little.

 

I wasn't happy with the electrical box I made, and couldn't form the louvers anyway.  I've got CAD and a 3D printer, lets try that.

Not perfect, but as a proof on concept its not too bad!

Also played around a little with the exhuast.

And maybe mag wheels instead of spoked.
