Attached File  TCU2011BBO_010.JPG   769.56KB   201 downloadsHeres my entry photo Quite a bit of this bike will be 1940 Indian Sport Scout. I an using a set of Truett & Osborne flywheels that are a proto type allowing 4 7/16" stroke and Sportster rods with the correct weight and ballance factor unlike the Chief wheels I've used in the past. It is going to have a cone hub Triumph duel leading shoe front wheel. And other neet stuff to be determined.

Let me make this perfectly clear I don't suck because I have an Indian and you don't. I suck because I have 3 and a half Indians and am not afraid to chop them. Here's My every day rider.

Odd that redskins outnumber Hooley Dooleys in this one . As a former 741 Scout owner and modifier this is one for the watch list.

Best of luck with it and see you at the finish line .

Trying desperatly to gather all the last minuite parts. Other than the tires (thanks Wonky Thumb) every thing has been like pulling teeth. Pretty well decided on an axed alien tank and flanders #1 bars or a good copy and a ribbed rear fender. Just try to get a vendor to measure something for you this time of year!!! I normally love to fab stuff but since I'm trying to build an engine thats 70 years old so only wanted to fab the Oil tank/battery box, sissy bar and numerous small parts I will have to machine.

aw c'mon, pops. christmas brings out the best in everybody. (sarcasm)
and don't tell 'em everything we're gonna do to the old thing right off the bat. save a bit of 'gee-whiz' factor for the updates.
BTW - this is son of dusty. we will be trading off on the updates and any flame war to happen will likely be amongst father and son.

bit of history for this bike: dusty bought it years before i was around and i've been tripping over the pile of parts since i could walk. it was an old ex-racer that was used for training, both in riding and repair. as a result, every single part and piece on it has been thoroughly thrashed (and not like testament or anthrax) and i'm getting good and tired of filing pliers marks off of 70 yr old irreplacable bits and grinding welds that look like they came out the business end of a turkey. also savoring the joys of working on a bike in carboard box form. i guess we're gonna end up with an indian scout chopper, and who has one of those? so i shouldn't complain too much. but i will anyway.

son-of-dusty = saturatedpat

tired.
recovering from christmas.
we can't start for another two days, but ferreting out parts in the pressed loaf of junk we live in here is a pastime that never ends. it's kinda like finding a needle in the bolognia.
maybe not.
found some more little things - hollow axle, sprocket - all special '40 only stuff. can't find the restored shebler race carb we had. grrrr. if someone took it i'm gonna get stabby. have a few more piles and boxes to go through. still need a few fork bits. can't find the brakes for the back wheel.
dusty started setting the old worn craftsman lathe up to grind thrust washers (the old man bet' not give me shit for keeping junk after that locked up old drill saved our asses) and we have to set up our clearances with mock washers since the ones the scout needs are 1) expensive, 2) hard to find, 3) hard as damn glass.
well, time to roll up my sleeves and dive back into the sargasso sea of our shop.
cheers.
rock them bikes, boys.

Well first the bad news the Flywheels I wanted to use won't be here for 3 or 4 weeks, so I am building it with a set of 4 7/16" stroke Chief wheels and a nicely polished set of rods that pat polished. If the T&O flywheels get here in time I'll try to use them. Then in a better vein "Jacob Junker - Indian Motorcycle News - Store, 951-678-1583, jdjimn@verizon.net, on Vintage Cycle Bay" Offered a 30 dollar discount on the drag pipes I wanted if I would mention his store. Now that is done back to the build! Got the thrust measured today and ordered the thrust washers, almost through sandblasting the rear wheel, ordered most of the metal, recieved the seat today and Wonky Thumb got the tires here before New Years.

with you @Iamredarrow and @homebrew. though for different reasons. (one bottom end inspires lecherous thoughts, the other is wearing tight jeans)

i hate the cold. when i moved to the desert, i was thinking tattooine, not tibet. air compressor was half full of ice (30 gallons of sludge ice). we got more parts in; seat, risers, taillight, engine kit, pipes, axle parts, etc. and come to find out, the jugs we had that we won from a popular auction site as being over three inches were actually just .030 over. woot. stupid people rule. quick call to the cushman guy for a pair of pistons and rings and the sleeves and other pistons go back on the shelf. nearly ready to throw a motor together. finally fought both flywheels true. still have to valve job, hone jugs, machine the cams flat for new lobes and assemble. gotta clean up the beaten primary cover we have laying around so i can steal my pop's primary cover that was copper plated back in the day. gotta get the back wheel painted and tire mounted so we know for sure what width fender we need. still have to fix the triumph front brake (bloody rivets, man. no.). things are moving, but i still wish i had a bunch of minions that look like yellow pills to do the work while i drink beer and play with the shrink ray. gotta get back to it.
