  • From the topic title I suppose you guessed what was happening... Well been busy with life stuff but if you recall that 1979 sportster I acquired a while back... it blew up... took it apart piston rings fell out of it and front connecting rod you could grab and move up and down without the crank turning. Well something had to be done... did some research and came to the conclusion! A $3000 sportster will always be a $3000 sportster no matter how much money you put into it. So I did a thing! Came home with a fresh brand spanking new frame and started to assemble what they call a big twin. Got a local company selling me discounted parts because of the outsourcing of them for 95% of the parts. They sold me a motor, transmission, frame, and anything else I need to make this happen. Some things I am picking up used like fenders and using parts off the sportster to make it work. Still a work in progress but I went with simplicity and function over style. Setup is a Rigid frame (no rear suspension), wide glide forks that came with the sportster,  harley evolution motor (80cui I believe), harley 4 speed (kick start only), and going to maybe be converting it over to a magneto and points setup to alleviate some wiring. Started in September and this is where it stopped so far. Short on funds have a trip coming up that needs be saved for haha. Will get more pictures and maybe a video once it is running hopefully by spring it will be able to be moved outside and fired up. Stay tuned! https://imgur.com/a/urVto

  • Indeed might change the front forks to a narrow glide... The wide glide is just off putting to me and i have a headlight and fender for the narrow one. Just goes with the "old school" look I think.
