CAD version of this
the parts are back from powdercoating, time for reassembly to
begin! We started by working on the rear fender mount which
needed some cleaning up.
After that was done I retapped all the threads in the frame
and other powdercoated parts, removed the coating from the motormounts,
and installed the swingarm and fork trees.
the meantime my
friend Ben at Ben's
Metalshaping SHOP reshaped the top of the
tank to remove the flat part around the gascap that every Sportster
tank has and that always had annoyed me. Much better now! I
made a matching rib for the rear fender and found a nice taillight
for which I made a bracket. Now we just need to modify the gascap
to fit the new shape, weld the ribs and the taillight bracket
and the tins can be painted...
