Still struggling with some health issues. 

But did get to hit it a lick today.

 

Cut bent fitted welded a tunnel in that tank bottom. Bottom is nearly done. The top is around 3/4 done. Still have to make the front around the yoke and the tail end at the seat.

Well.......

Most of it is one off also. Lots of self made parts in this one. Why not a tank also?

Finishing up various small details.

 

Pressured up the oil system and everything seems to work as it should.

Made a big mess. Learned a little air pressure goes a long ways.

If I remember correctly....those are 215 wide.

 

I suppose you can tell i am a bit performance oriented. 

I don't really want to run more tire than what is needed.

Tires that are bigger than what is needed for the hp, weight or use are just a big power suck.

 

I does look cool to have 2000hp tires. It makes you think it needs them. But if you do not need them then you are just throwing away hp and performance.

 

That has always been a problem with me when trying to build something cool.

If it is counter productive to making it go then I don't want it.

 

Sometimes you can find something that look good and go also......

Wide tires still would look cool....

 

Ok so.

It is 4 ft wide to the outside of the tires.

It is s cut down narrow axle swing.

That will make it easier to get thru traffic, its a bitch when the bikes can split lanes and such and the trykes get left behind.

This has drug out over a long period of time.

But some history.

This thing is not all new.

I built it years ago with a 2110 carved engine.

Flat black and cruiser styled.

It was run this way many years. At one point it was my daily transport for 3 yrs.

The engine needed internal work and I took it apart. 

Should have fixed it and put it back together.

But.

BBO came around and I had the idea of a re-style. Something more choppery looking.

So begins the rabbit hole.

The always wanted this or to do that and while this is apart anyway.

And a before and after

It has now been run through several warm up cycles.

Things are loosening up and settling in.

Over the first start hots.

Scaled up the fuel tables and have it rich now.

The ford idle air valve is online now and working.

It idles on its own now.

The base timing is checked and was on 10 advanced with no advance command (no spark advance word from computer). That is the way ford intended it.

I reved it one time high enough to hit the cam.

It sounds beefy/chunky like a big block Chevy at idle and down low.

But when the cam comes in it suddenly changes and becomes a big motorcycle sounding engine.

Gonna be wild.
