Beautiful build.

I'm a little late to this party, but just curious: did you consider the siamesed 77-78 XLCR Cafe Sportster head pipes? Of course, not sure if they would work with your frame. https://www.google.com/search?q=1978...er%3B640%3B480

Great idea on the starter button. I may, scratch that, will steal that idea! Where did you source the starter button?

Not really, I did want to have a cross over pipe under the engine, but was too tricky for me. Maybe something to consider when I tune the engine next winter.

You can get chrome buttons from Ebay for pennies, but the one I have is stainless from the Zodiac HD catalogue https://www.zodiac.nl/en/

Hi Guys,

Ken from BikeBuilds.net here. Very sweet Norton.

Got the electrics done, surprisingly it all works except the speedo which I think is faulty. Had to rebuild the second hand clutch and brake master cylinders, while my homemade hydraulic clutch works smoothly but is too heavy for me. Got a bigger slave cylinder from a Honda Blackbird to try next.

But for this year at least its done. I took the bike to a local place with an ancient circle of standing stones, took a few photos before I got told off..

It's probably the first Harley motor I've said this about, but I want to see and hear this bike in video! Great build. I love it.

Just discovered your thread today. This is the coolest bike I have seen in a while. I've always liked British bikes and I want a Harley too... I guess I know what a guy with limited garage space needs to do

Thanks for the comments, I have got a brief vid of it running, but cant download it from my camera to the pc. Not sure if the fault lies with the Camera or my laptop. Will try to borrow a Gopro or similar. Or wait tillit goes on the dyno.

Can still download photos so here are a couple more..

Another one..

Started a new project, another HD, this time an Evo Big twin. Building a little drag bike, Probably a bit too modern for this sub forum, though its being built in sort of retro 70's style.

I have a feeling this bike should be up on the Friday Harley thread down in the basement. The more I see it the more I like it. And apart from the really old ones I'm not a big Harley fan.

So, how are you liking it? What's good, what's bad, what would you do differently?
