Project Ironhead - Build List

Posted 6th November 2010 at 03:49 by 62 Ironhead
Updated 5th February 2011 at 03:30 by 62 Ironhead

Here is my build wish list so far:

1. Frame
Flyrite Choppers SS Sportster Scorcher Hard Tail Frame

2. Lines
All lines such as fuel & oil to be copper with brass fittings.

3. Minimal electrics
No turn signals, no battery, only headlight, tailight and horn. (minimal legal requirements for a 62 in Australia)

4. Solo seat
Harley Davidson Brown Leather Solo Sprung Seat

5. Brakes
Rear - Flyrite Choppers...

Bike is completely stripped down now including the engine. Now for the ground up re-build of my old school custom bobber.

Project Ironhead

Posted 6th November 2010 at 03:20 by 62 Ironhead
Updated 2nd January 2011 at 23:24 by 62 Ironhead

Project Ironhead (also know as Project Dickhead by my wife)

Looks okay from a distance, however is a bit of a basket case up close. 62XLH engine in a 73+ Sportster frame which runs but is in need of an overhaul and re-styling.
Minimum work needed:
- new top triple tree (cracked)
- speedo (not fitted)
- engine rebuild (pretty smokey and front cylinder leaks oil through barrell)
- new tank (dented and cracked)
- new wiring (nothing works electrically)...
