    Thanks ONE H. P. , pretty sure it will be fine. I had the crank on yesterday and actually rode it up the road a bit...and the back tire was rubbing against one stay. So. I first tried to spread the stays with a jack...clink...snapped the weld on the little bracket that holds the fender..then chewed up the inside of the stays...had to smooth out and reshoot them.. what a day..I felt like I was goin backwards..:doh:
    The tire is probably not exactly 'level ' in the dropouts but its goodenuff. , I worked waaay to long to try to get it 'perfect' ..but hey, that ain't gonna happen. :bigsmile:
    And, I did want to keep the original holes in the BB instead of putting a smooth one on.. and keep the seatstays for just the reason you stated, show some vestige of the parent bike.
    :happy:

    I used the same kick stand. It's cheap made but seems to work fine.

    You know, as I'm building this bike it occurred to me that I never even rode a muscle bike...and I still haven't.....:bigsmile:

    I must have missed that whole era...and when my 3 boys were young..it was the late 80s...I remember fixing a lot of beaters from the "take it or leave it pile" at the landfill to keep those little dudes movin'. :thumbsup:

    Shifting Gears? Not Yet..tomorrow I hope. Spent yesterday fabricating up some clamps and other little brackets and stuff that I need to attach some 'stuff'. mostly grinding , tapping, fitting, a little welding...and today...finishing the parts , fitting, testing..and I was interrupted by a few 'buyers' for some of my CL bikes..seems like it was bike day...sold two..so that was great. Yaaaay

    So what the heck did you do all day Franco? OK...I added a cool chrome rack to the back.

    and, still fabbing up my whack-O shifter...all parts from the 'junk' bin. I'm looking at a working shifter by tomorrow afternoon...we'll see. :happy:
    4 days., ok guys, we can do this, good luck to all

    I think it should stay light longer though. Nice Florida sky as I was wrapping it up today....

    Yeah that ^ ! Looks almost like you planned it that way...;) Frame flows right into the rack.
    That shifter, has to be the 'hot' handle, right...?

    Thank you Advhog....appreciate that coming from a fine fellow builder...


    Ha...if I had that much foresight, I'd be dangerous...some things fall into place once you have the basic bike built....other things...ummmm....not so much.:13:

    I think I made it 11:59pm December 1st USA Central time.
    I fudged the extra 23 hours 59 minutes in for everyone... ;)

    Just use the countdown timer, that will be used for official closing the finished threads etc...

    Luke.
