I have parts slowly trickling in. Should have the cylinder studs and head bolts by this weekend. I took off the ugly risers and chopped clamp, and put on some stock risers I had laying around. Took the sprocket cover off the 82 in my garage and it fit perfectly. I got the broken stud out and all the others. I think whoever decided the studs should be installed with the shoulders up in the 4 speeds should be smacked upside the head. It took a dang 18" pipe wrench to break those studs free. Anyways, even though it's tearing down instead of building it up, I'm calling it progress.

May not be building up yet but your still moving forward! You've got a lot of boneheadedness to undo from the PO.

Keep on resurrecting!

Didn't get much done yesterday. I seem to have too many things going on right now. I need circlips for the pistons and dowels for cylinders. Of course, that doesn't matter, because I don't have the cylinder studs yet. I set the rear fender in place after breaking off the very brittle plastic extension (I have no idea what it's called, and can't find a part number), and laid some tape where I would cut it off if I were to keep the passenger option. I may forego ever riding passengers on this rattle trap, but part of me wants someone holding on tight behind me.

A very important part, indeed.

Just info. Depending on the motor and pistons. I use teflon buttons instead of circlips to hold the wrist pin in.

No need to follow all the instructions in the info video. Just ideas you may need to make the re-install comfy cozy for you.

r breaking off the very brittle plastic extension (
I don't know if you saw my setup or remember even. I rivited a metal nut sert to my rear fender. I got the nut sert from my local hardware store.

Mine has 2 small holes on the flange plate so to rivet the nut from the top and use a bolt or machine screw or stud <with loctite> to secure the back of the seat to the fender.

I have a complete rear fender (as well as a front) from my '02 Sporty, before I built the 'Bagster'... if anything like that will fit your build, you're welcome to have it. Just send me an address and I'll ship it right out.

Thanks, my friend, but I have another fender, I just don't want to take it off the poor ironhead. I'm chopping this one, and I'm gonna worry about the plastic thingamadoochie later. Appreciate the offer, though. I'm blessed to have such good friends on this forum.

My local Indy has the circlips, so I'm headed to town to get those. Then I'll ask if he has the cylinder to head dowels, cause I'm not sure I can get the old ones out without buggering them up. Those and the studs are preventing the motor from going back together. Studs will be here Monday.
