    Yeah, I just saw the mock-up pics and see that it is the tank and not the seat......whew, had me worried for a sec. Was thinkin you were gonna have to change the name of the build to the "Hemi-Special" or "Pile-o-Piles" er sumpin like dat laff

    Exactly what i was talking about, it looks good, between the 4 stroke, belt drive and that long pipe and muffler it should be very quiet.

    That is going to be all pipe no baffles and if it turns out too loud I will remove the end cap and add some baffles

    Here are a few pics of the brake levers I bought for Rare Bird.

    SANY0398.jpg These are the ones I am going to use

    SANY0400.jpg These are the ones I bought first but are way to short

    SANY0399.jpg This shows the size difference between the two

    At first I thought the old school levers would be right but as soon as I saw them I knew I had to get larger ones. So I bought mini bike levers, both are for the left so one will be upside down. The adjusting adjusters are a little big for the bike cables I will try to find some that will work better with bike cables.

    Cheers
    Terry

    Thank you Antonio
    I will be spending the next few days Re-organizing my shop and when that is done I will be finishing this build.
    I can't wait to put it all together and take it for a ride

    HI Everyone
    Well here are some pictures of my shop after buying some racks to help organize it so I can work on bikes.
    Before this you had to walk sideways to get through I now have plenty of room and this is one of the reasons why I have not worked on Rare Bird.
    I just have some final organizing to do and I will be right back at it hopefully next Monday.
    These pics are not to show off just to show what $200 bucks for racks and 30 hours of hard work.
    Special thanks to my best buddy Adrian with out him it would have taken 70 hours to get this far.

    All the shelves where put in on Saturday the green ones where free and the large racks cost me $170.
    I am going to get a better welder first and then a lathe my shop has a little ways to go but it is getting there.
    Cheers

    I was just reading through this for the 11th time, but who's counting. I saw the pics of the engine sitting in the frame and it looks TIGHT. True, or camera angle?

    Yes those where mock up pics and if you look closer at the those pics you will see that I have the mount set really high about 2 inches high. The reason I did that was I was not sure what the clearance would be for the belt so I just set the mount as high as I could just for the moch up. When the mount is put in place for good I will have it just above the pedal chain guard. I think I have a pic of my MP some where and you can see the difference.

    That picture is what the clearance will be like when Rare Bird is done

    I think your mind is slipping don't you remember my pencil drawing and how my seat was going to be a pain in the butt. But then you looked back at the photos and saw the fuel tank on the lay back seat post LOL it sucks to get old you know. The steel frame felts top tube is so small it is not worth doing a tank in them.

    Wow That a awesome build!. Ihope you don't mind me asking question about the lay back seatpost/gas tank. How long is the seatpost from the top to the tank? I really like to add this to my build later on but wasnt sure if the post is long enough. Again awesome build!
