First shovel build

Bought this bike last weekend in boxes. Super cheap. Has clear title. Pictures you see are after I started pre-assembly too make sure I had all the parts and also to figure what parts I'll selling. Motor was a fresh build to a 80 cubic inches, solid lifters, dual plug per cylinder motor, fresh built 4 speed tranny (kick start). Paughco hard tail frame. Narrow Glide front end. Anyway enjoy the pictures and I'll try to update as much as possible.

Do you know if anyone makes a aftermarket inner primary case to run it open like this? Or does one have to be fabricated?

with one of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/HARLEY-4-SPE...802bbe&vxp=mtr you don't have to worry about an inner at all plus you'll be too cool for school

Primary shots and other

Pics as promised. First primary shot is with inner cover. It's what the previous owner had used.

Last 2 shots are rolling chassis.

Don't think I'll use the bars but had them lying around and thought I would see what it looked like.

Will do. I do have the outer primary tin as well. Maybe i'll use them... we will see. I gotta find a seat, tank, battery box, and oil bag. I don't think I wanna use the horse shoe oil bag.
