So the plan was the clean up all unneccessay clutter off the handlebar. No: speedometer, tachometer, turn signals, mirrors and warning light indicators. So how do I keep track of fuel and oil. Noticed in a bike mag..FUEL SIGHT GAUGE.. Looks like a plan and you dont see them much on the road. Good idea... Found a welder close to home. He fab/ weld up some added strength to the swingarm and bungs into the gas tank.
The welder did some great work on the items, however, the customer service ended up not being good. Dont know if it was due to workload or secretary. But nevertheless, the lack of return phone calls were unacceptable. So another search for a reliable welder. Welder had to be close to home due to Ill be running back and forth for additional welding jobs on the bike. Customer service a big plus but workmanship was the biggest concern. Hey didnt need any welded parts disintegrating on me while running down the road.
Came up with a shop near home. OUTSTANDING. I have had several jobs done by the time of me writing up this post. KENWOOD WELDING. I definately recommend the shop to anyone.
Well the weather began to get colder and time to move the bike into the house. That was some work with only a few inches of clearance to get into the back door. So a lot of wiggling and finally made it inside. Had to purchase a few supplies and tools since I didnt not everything needed. So figured just work on the most simplest and easiest part. AIR CLEANER.
My plan was to get the rear end customized first. That way I would have a better idea on the length of the springer front end. More disassembly of the rear end parts. All bolts off and some cutting. Thanks to Harbor Freight Tools. Some tools were needed and that place sold them at a great price.
Well the moment of truth. I knew once I cut the fender support bracket there was no goin back. Got the cutting wheel and ....................zing! support brackets were cut. The brackets were cut due to the plan, set up and wider swingarm. Time to step back as much as I cud and look at the bike. Ideas and thoughts of what Im planning to get accomplished.
