    The frames been in the back shed for a few years,i've been collecting parts before l make a start on the build,
    got about 90% of it now , some original some after market some home made, just now wiped the dust off and took a good look ,
    its in good condition with only a few small repairs needed,the black paint can stay with a few touch ups around the scuffs.

    changed my mind,didnt want to but kind of new it would happen, when l painted the rigid frame at the same time of the 1958 parts,
    its a v-twin roller kit from the states a mate bought in about 6 years back didnt do any thing with it, so passed it on to me at cost,
    its got the motor and trans l was going to use in the "58" so ive put the 58 back into storage for now,probably till next year,
    so this is a 1956,the usual built motor and strans from scratch,didnt have to build the wheels as they are part of the roller kit,
    not real keen on the colour ive painted but it is a 56 colour,.... it starts and runs real good, just doing carb and timing adjustments...
    l didnt put anything up here, no photos taken of the build,l picked up a 46 knuckle to fix up for a friend,2 days back so ill show the build of it  in a new topic,
    to keep a record of what has been done to it,,,so thats what happened to the "58" for now...

    How was the fit n finish on the roller?, I've seen and heard some scary stories.
    Engines not lining up in chassis, tanks mounting way outta wack, etc.

    yes the stories are true, l could write a 3 page spread on the trouble with the v-twin roller kits,
    in this case anyway, all parts needed to be hand fitted,and l mean all,there wasn't a part that fitted  as it should,
    build quality of parts could be improved on for sure,when fork oil added they leaked like a sieve,3 times l had them apart ,
    l hadn't heard about issues with these kits and probably wouldn't have taken any notice anyway,
