Default Re: My next custom build (maybe)

Healing up nicely from surgery and back on the project. I made a jig to hold the engine block parallel to the centerline of the frame. The photos show it all clamped up and ready to weld the mounts. The right hand cantilever bar blocks the spark plug slightly, so I'm going to cut a half moon slice in it and weld a curved piece back into it. Should look clean. Next on the list will be a steering stop so the bars wont hit the tank. Then a bracket welded onto the seat post tube that will support my Whizzer centrifugal clutch pivot. After that, I can get it back on two wheels and see what's next. Stay tuned, still lots to do. Like make the compression release, assemble the motor, fit the belts , make cables, balance the flywheel, mount the tank, make the carb intake, make the exhaust pipe, make a shroud for the flywheel side and the primary drive pulleys, figure out a fuel valve-hose-filter, make rear axle adjusters, etc. etc. This list is for my review as I go along.
