Start your RRB Build Off diaries here!
The pipes look great.
My chain would slap the frame when I hit the brakes. Any clearance issue with the pipes?
Ya know I was soo mad at the rear hub being messed up that I didnt notice haha.I rotated it some and didnt hear anything but once again I was upset at the time.
It may be something I will have to compensate for by one means or the other.
If it ends up being a clearance issue Ill make a guide roller to keep the chain off the pipes.

Plenty of chain clearance,no probs!
pic is upside down
dabbling with chainguards since I dont have the original.This one was out of a bike shop/western auto up town that is being turned into a restaraunt.the price on it says 1.29 lol.Its unused,likely a repro but has the look im shooting for and well....its about all i have that will fit.
Had a cool old shift knob laying around,it was beat up and yellowed.Found a cool way to incorporate it into my build.
Why not a shift knob horn button!
for a shift rod i used a broken sissy bar and an axle shaft.
everything just kinda laying there while i scratched my head
the shift rod cut down(had to be cut in half later)
top view,pre clean up
side view of the shaft assembly,spot welded a washer and squared it to keep it all in place
knob after SOS scrub and polishing with metal polish,works great on some plastics
lowered the horn assembly with a couple spacer nuts and longer screws,this is it assembled,need the horn itself now and it will work
Some after popping the tank on,the tank will get some form of work down the road.
Truly hope you all like it!!!!!!!
Thanks for dropping in!!

Now that's the kind of imaginative little extras that seperate the winners from the others. What are you going to come up with for the light switch? Keep up the great work! Robert
Thank you soo much buddy.By the way I sent the payment via paypal for the chainguard!
Well,now I have dual exhaust and a 4 speed shifter....if I could just figure out how to mount a 455 in it I'd be set.
