So, I picked up that frame today and started putting things together.
This is just a really rough mock-up, just to get an idea.
But I like the line it has (except for the exhaust, that definitely has to change!)
Anyway, hope to be able to make some drawings for the oiltank and start fabricating a batterybox tomorrow.
See you in a few..
Oh yes, Happy New Year! ;-)

PS: pictures were taken by my good friend Jakke and edited by me!

did some work on the bike again

I cleaned up the outside of the gas tank I'll be using.
Tomorrow morning I'll go pick up the frame again and start testfitting the engine, the tank, and start making templates for the oil tank.
I'll keep you posted!!

did some work on the bike again

Last week I was able to strip the bike.
And this morning I took out the engine. It's the first time I took out a sportster engine and damn it weighs a lot!
The plan is to get the hardtail frame back this week (at the moment it's standing at a friends place) and put the engine in. Then I can start on the oiltank.
Here some pic's:

... it's been a while ...

... since my last post so.. I'll be starting again on the sportster project this week (had to put it on hold for a little while).

The first thing I'll be doing is fixing the tank! I've got the leather I wanted and needed so I can get started ( tank, leather,.. ?? you'll get some pictures in a little while)
Then I'l bee stripping my donorbike and putting the engine in the hardtail frame so I can start working around it.
Next will be the oiltank.. still not really sure what I'm gonna do there, possibly a home-made horseshoe.

Anyway, I'll keep you updated!

In the meanwhile, here's a picture of a friends bike.
