took the pieces of frame to my friend Pauls house to stick em together.

first, ya hafta line em up & clamp em together



then I turned him loose. paul is a much better welder than I am. I'll weld tabs & doohickeys on, but when it comes to critical things, like stickin 2 frame parts together, I'll let him do it.
If nothin else, I'll have someone to blame if it breaks.



then take it to the local sandblaster & have all the old paint stripped off. This also helps to find cracks & other things that may need fixed
(I did find a couple small cracks that I welded back up)
I also had him blast an old rusty springer I had



and now, its painted & ready to start sticking together!



I've also got the wheels ready, gonna run 16's front & rear, with those snazy Duro tires. I love how they look, & they handle pretty good too.
I got a dual cam brake plate, made by a guy over in Holland. Should stop pretty good (I hope)

I love how it looks so far!

Question

Doug:

It seems weird having that vertical piece in the frame at the back of the engine area. Is this because the engine and trannie are separate units and the frame member won't interfere?

Looks really good with the off road tires. I like the fat front tire. Can't wait to see more.

yes, trans goes behind the center post. newer harleys dont have that (big twins that is, sporty's have never had one)
plus, the seat pogo stick goes down thru that tube (on older bikes that had a pogo)

A few screws in those Duros and you'll be ready for some ice action.

I had those same tires on the Ural. Great grip. But they didnt last as long as I would like. Not that anything does on that beast.
