Sorry it took me a few days to look for these parts. I have most of what you are looking. Not the studs, I already sent them to someone else. Here's what I have:



included are 2 parts not in your photos. one is the bracket that attaches the center upper motor mount to the frame. The other is the front upper motor support. It bolts to the 2 threaded holes just below your neck and then on to 2 of the rocker box studs. The one I have doesn't quite look like the one in the parts book because I had previously welded a piece on to it to make a custom tank mount. You can just cutt that piece if you want this part.

PM me if you want if you want them. It won't cost much to ship, but since they will be coming from Canada and going through customs, you can expect to wait a couple oif weeks till you see them.

I love the guys on here always being so helpful.
And YES replace the 2 -20T gears in the trans unless you decide to roll the dice.
I've blown up 4 sets, and took out the cases once.
The gears are much cheaper than cases.

Lucky me I got a case half exactly like I needed from another member, which saved my a$$.

There is a lot of knowledge here just absorb as much as you can, and remember to listen when people ask you if you checked something.. usually they noticed something you missed.

OK someone send the emoji police WoW my pills must be kickin in .. WWEeeee

Sorry again owlspace, I thought your bike ‘82. I just noticed now it is ‘81. That means the extra part I show in top right of my photo for front upper motor mount will not fit your frame. And actually, the part that I said attaches the upper center brace to the frame, may not fit either. Mine is from an 82 and up frame which has the engine mounted slightly further left that pre 82 frames. So I only have 3 of the parts you are looking for

Well, transmissions were shipped to T&O. I'll ask about the two 20Ts.
I picked up two Colony studs and two NOS HD 3412s w/o nuts and washers.
Progress... I think I'll strip the frame and redo the wiring.
