Just been round for a beer with Doug from Shed 5. We can have the big exhibition space in teh back of Shed 5 for a week to show our bikes. Doug will also put up a prize and sort out the T-shirts.
We're going to catch up again next week to sort out some more details. Update y'all as soon as I know more.

Aparently that Indian is mostly new or repro parts. Doug has bought an original board tracker (not running) from Ebay for 20 grand US. Its going to be restored.

I started back into mine today but I have a hangover and feel like crap. I'll take some pics tomorrow and also move Mikes pictures to the blog site. Good to see Brett is starting one as well.

Eventually got back into it. Made a new seat bracket and mounted the Messinger seat off my Softail. Very rough but I'll tidy it all up this week. Need to make a final set of wheel spacers but it all looks fine when its put together. Sort of wish I'd gone for a small tank rather than the fat bobs but this will be the only one set up like this in my shed so its a change. Should be ready to break it down so that the frame can be powdered by next weekend. Can't wait to hear this motor run.

Did a little bit more work last night sorting out a seat rail to fit round my new bracket. Did it without setting anything on fire as well. I must be getting better at this (eventually). I'll try and get some more progress pics by Sunday.
How's everyone else doing? Any progress?

Hi. I did get some things mocked up this week. There is a list of other things to be changed. Will put pix in project files. Thanks, Brett.

Yeah its not everybodies thing but it works well with what I'm trying to do with the whole bike. I'll get some more pics up when I get the frame powdered and start putting it all together.

Is there any chance that seat rail might hit your frame when you sit on it... or is it just the angle of the pic?
