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.
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
oops..had a little set back here.Ended up using a die grinder and took a crescent moon shape out of the plate
notice the curve is wrong,found a link on how to fix 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
