Though progress was made, not much visible proof is available & that made is rather butt ugly at the moment. For those new to fabricating as opposed to assembling moto-cycles it's a quite different process and things typically look really bad through most of each project until about they're 90% complete. If they look bad then....there's little hope things will turn out well. I'm at the 25% point of having the cylinder set completed so yeah it's 'kinda pitiful. I've cut parts for the intake rocker and spring tower assembly but have yet to start on the neglected intake and exhausts ports or the sparkplug mounts. Every part that would originally have been removable for service or repairs will be removable on this motor housing as well; though not necessarily in the exact manner. Getting the cylinder set correct will be the most time consuming part of the fabrication. I've already started to exercise some of my normal free will on the housings appearance. Nothing I build is ever an exact replica though I'll stay closer on some things than others. I like the vintage style of the 1915 Harley F head engine, but I still use the "what if" mode for design differences when they occur to me. I've three more days of decent forecasts so I expect a lot of progress on each of the missing cylinder elements. The bat wing plates are used to clamp the cylinder set to the work bench and will be cut off when the cylinder sets are completed and work begins on the bottom end case. Rick C.
