Closer to the goal

Giving the crummy weather we have been having, fishing was out of the question for me this weekend. What else is there to do but build a custom motorcycle. Got up early both days and got a lot done. Yesterday was all about the front end. Still not totally pleased with the end play on the front bearings, so I will redo it when I do the final build.
Today I worked on the rear wheel and the primary drive. Here is a picture of the stator, I just thought it looked kinda neat up in there and worthy of a picture. Click the picture for a large view. Maybe I am a dork, but it makes a cool desktop wallpaper.

So, end of weekend 2 and I got the following done:

Front forks
Front wheel
Charging system
Rear Wheel
Tranny shimmed

Things are progressing nicely, I will work on the tins this week......and than find a place to get it powder coated.

Told ya Jodi!

Did Jeff mount the tire on the front rim?

Hey said "mount!" hee hee!

Sorry not to comment earlier, been sicker than crap all weekend. yuck!

I'm amazed at how much you have accomplished Zaq! And though I chose 'not' to use the close up at my background, it still is pretty cool. lol! How much typically will it cost to get it coated? and how long of a process is that?? Will it set you back some days??

So that is the mocked up bike? Outstanding!

Jeff mounted it, very good man that guy. Actually everyone in there was cool.

Sounds like around 200 bucks, a week of time. I won't be able to ride it consistently until April/May so I am not in a rush.

Zaq, enjoyed reading your blog...I want to use mine, but know that I am too lazy to keep it up.

I am digging your build pics. I have a 2005 Fatboy (appropriately named for me), but feel like the guys that built their own earned the ride more.

Thanks for keeping up with the journal, bro!
