Well, I now have the rear brakes installed and am working on getting the rear sub-frame on the bike. When I get that done, I’m going to move on to the front forks and steering.
Here is the write-up on installing the rear brakes, rear brake pedal and mounting the polished rear wheel with the new stainless steel spokes and the powder coated battery box:
Here’s how the bike looks at this point.
After I got the engine and transmission installed in the frame, it’s time to add the swing arm and the rear drive. Here is the write-up I did for this part of the project.
And, you can find the write-ups for the engine and transmission installation work here:
Here are some of the pictures from the write-up.
It’s time to put parts back into the frame :-). The first to go in is the engine followed by the transmission. You can read about what I did here:
I used information from the following resources to plan this work.
As I had the engine stripped down, I was able to lift it into the frame by myself using some straps so my hands weren’t under the oil pan. The transmission isn’t very heavy, but there isn’t much clearance when the engine is installed and I had to remove the kick start lever or it wouldn’t fit.
Here are a couple pictures from the write-ups.
