Here is my entry photos. When I dug the frame out and looked at the numbers it is a 1950. Dam that's a lot of parts.

It's going to be similar to a fairly popular hot rod of the 50s, a light weight vertical twin alloy frame with a Military surplus 741 Scout engine. I'm going to bore and stroke it from 30.5 CID to 42 CID and run either the same cams as last year or a set of Indian Bonneville. Since some genius previous owner has sawed the down tube off so I might as well rake it a little.

I've been gathering Indian parts since 1963 but the stuff in this build over the last 10 or 12 years. Thanks

Yeah theres a CB750K, a 850 T3 Guzzi, part of a 36 scout and a 64 Ducati under there for future years. And when I'm in a car mood a Desoto, a 65 chevy convert, a 50 Chevy PU and a few Jeeps. Enough projects to outlast me I think.

Your entry was for a '49 and now it seems you're building a '50. I think this may be our first disqualification due to a technicality. Now if I can just find a way to get rid of the rest I'll win by default! Then all the prize money will be mine.... all mine!!!!

I wish I could find some neat stuff around here. I love my Hondas but I wouldn't mind having a bit of your stuff in my garage. A lot of years ago I did own a 30's something Scout for almost a whole day. I bought it from the original owner, a guy in his 80's. The next day someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse [at the time I needed money more than another bike].

I've seen under his bench, I think theres a corvette under there and lucky for me one less bottle of home made brandy! Good Luck Dusty looks good, I'm gonna try to make it up there again soon weather permitting, and you and wife are always welcome to stop by here.

Just ride it....

Cliff,
I didn't mention things that run. To me the ones that are basket cases are more important. If Carol gets enough better to travel we will be by and I plan to make several events this year on El Indio.

There's something to be said for a good rat bike. Every time I went to Laurence KS in the 80s there was a rat parked at the swap meet with a knuckle rear head and pan front, one drag pipe and one up swept fish tip, wide glide forks with springer wheel miss matched tank halves even had different style saddle bags. It always drew a crowd bigger than any of the customs. Probably more craftsmanship in getting all of that stuff to fit than most show bikes.

Since I called the last one Indian in Spanish I'm gonna call this one Spanish (or maybe Mexican used both ways) in Western Apache which is Nakaiyé pronuced nah-kye-yeh.

Started sorting parts and figuring what to buy and what to make. A few aw-shits like only having one rod of the correct style, gotta get on the phone and beg. Started making a trans counter shaft.

Pressed the cluster gear bushings in and fitted to the counter shaft, made the thrust washers it needed. Then the sprocket driver gear bushing made me insane all afternoon. I made a bush according to the print and it pressed in halfway and it seized up solid so I turned it out and made another a thousandths and a half smaller and it went in just a red cunt hair farther. So I got out my snap gages and acted like a semi competent machinist and found that the bushing bore in that used and abused 70 year old gear tapered dam near three thousandths to three quarters of the way then jumped down to four thousandths. So I made a bush that approximated the bore shape lubricated it with some loctite and it pressed right in. Fitted it to the shaft and decided that it was beer thirty.

Dam I hate working in prehard but it saves time and scrap over building it then hardening it. Don't think that the nuts would hold torque if mild steel.

Making the main-shaft spacers.
