Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

today I learned that "final" mounting of the motor takes a few more steps than you'd think.
I think I've had the motor on the bike 7 times now, with a handful of mounting variations. The final setup is pretty cool. Just gotta make a shim or 2 for the mounts, & it'll be time to start aligning the chain. Got a deadline of Sunday night to get it on the road.

I've had to do quite a bit of fabricating on this bike, but it's finally coming together. My buddy has been a great help with making parts & teaching me stuff, so I told him to consider the garage his whenever he needs it. That was a good move....the garage now contains a drill press, a brand new band saw, torque wrenches, tap & die tools, more light, & (my favorite) a full set of ratcheting box wrenches. I'll probably start a build thread...I've still got notes & pics from the process, & maybe somebody use some of the solutions I've got.
