    Looks like a big job. Got much planned with the engine?

    Looks like a big job. Got much planned with the engine?
    Bought this for a project, I need something to tinker on and have done all I want to do with my Dyna for now. I aquired this bike quite cheap so prepared to do whatever I have to to get it to a level I'm happy with and happy to split the cases etc on this where I would be hesitant to do that with my Dyna unless it was absolutely necessary.
    So yes, doing a bit with the engine. Once I pulled it down I found the timken main bearings are shot, I Thought I could hear a knock there somewhere so happy I've at least found this.  Also it has a 1200 kit with 1200 heads but bores and slugs quite badly scored...
    All the alloy will get vapor blasted, Will likely be going with the hammer 1275 kit, I have some Andrews V2 cams to go in, will see Mr. Hood again to tidy up the heads, mild porting and whatever we decide to do once I have a chat with him. It has an issue with the gear selector, way too much axial play, so will have a good look at that, maybe get the upgraded clutch basket...
    No intention at all to make this a high performance orientated build, I have something for that already. Just hopefully something that runs well and stands out a bit. There will be a lot of small mods here and there, just a fun little project .

    This pic is how it was when I bought it...

    No, haven't had a front brake for a couple of years now, even before I got the spool wheel. I don't miss it. 
    Built the whole bike myself, been through more changes than I can remember. Currently pulled down getting a new horseshoe oil tank, narrow frisco gas tank, taillight, different riser/bar combo and still tossing up whether to keep the sissy bar or not, possibly some more frame modifications.
    Everything I've done to this bike has been to make it skinnier, I live close to the city so lane splitting is absolutely necessary in peak hour. Think my bars are around 15" wide.

    Pipes are custom made, rear rim is a fat spoke 18 inch and was originally attached to a Dyna front hub. Had to use oversized nipples but seems to be holding up ok.  Front wheel is 19 inch off an 03 Dyna.

    Cheers mate, on the want list is an XR type front end  (join the queue) with high end brakes front and rear and probably a custom oil tank.  It’s hard sinking more cash into the bike....considering it’s resale value is always going to be well under 10 K’s.

    Hubs are stock 03 Dyna but the rear had to be machined to accomodate the 1 inch rear axle. Bars are Flanders swept back. 
    Cheers mate.

    Not still running that headlight, was a tiny little thing that looked like a downlight that I got with that front end.
