  • My bike I've been building

    After a few months of work I took it for a spin.
    I'm really happy that my wiring was correct and worked the first try...but my plumbing skills are not so good.Had the suction and return oil lines crossed.I was watching out for any screw ups so alls good now.

      Great job, please tell us more. Is this your first build, did you fabricate any of the parts (frame, handle bars)? What was that first ride like after all the hard work?

        More details please. Looks like a panhead, but I'm no HD Xpert.

        That is so 60's

          James I even have a King/Queen seat for it.
          Its a 88 1250 sportster..I think my rocker covers are throwing you off.

          Frank I built the springer,it came as a kit.I also ordered a 200 hardtail rear end as a kit.Thinking I would have everything I needed...lol.Trust me you do not.
          Here are a few more pics as I was building it

          Here's how the springer came



          The other end

            fixing it

            using a camera to try and see what lines go where on my oil tank

              Mocking it up

              these came the other day

              Anybody who even thinks about doing something like this plan on spending at least twice more then what the kit cost.All the little stuff really adds up.
              I could have bought a new bike...but it has been fun,I learned a lot.And had a good excuse to buy more tools.
              I just got a shirt that says "Built not Bought"

                Thanks for the pictures and information. Sometimes it's better not knowing what we are getting ourselves into. You came out of this with the knowledge and satisfaction of building the bike yourself! And the tools

                  Re: My bike I've been building

                  i think the K&Q looks better. the only changes i would make would be to wishbone the frame, get a rectangular headlight & go with mild pullbacks. but that's just my $.02 before taxes

                  as i said a sweeeeeeeet ride

                    I like the round headlight and the saddle seat.

                    Here's what the wife wants. http://spyder.brp.com/en-US/

                    Haven't been on a bike in years. I would probably be better off with something with training wheels.
