Evo Rigid Custom 2012 Winter Project

I work in the IT industry but have a passion for bikes, Harleys, customs, etc...!

Rebuilding my Harley with my Dad over the winter of 2012.

Throwing some old school FLH fenders on it.
Going with 16" - 18" standard ape hangers.
Went from a standard seat to a spring seat.
Putting the spot lights back on.
Much more...!

It's freakin' cold out in that garage!

My young Brother,I must compliment you & your Dad,Great lokking Bike & I know with the steps(& CAUTION ) you ywo took,she rides beautiful.
I am rebuilding the frame on my 57' EVO (broke 3 places,backbone,both downtubes)due to poor workmanship (by previous owner) & metal/weld deterioration(?)We've built frame rack,the pieces to replace,& are bout done.If I ever do again,I will not dis-assemble every part-why??
In a "Hardtail" you can seperate t6he motor & trany through the primary,if you unbolt trans(Under),remove outer primary,clutch,belt/chaindrive,charging cover,& front rear primary bolts from your motor,you will save time,& not having re-install your electric start system.I had a Bro helping me & after we had it all apart,I took the 15 min. look to acess what we had done.I could have kicked both our backsides for not analizing what really had to be dis-assembled before we just started tweeking wrenches.
Do your self a major "justice",sit ,look,evaluate for 15 minutes before you pick-up a wrench,saw,torch,etc. & plan out not only the tear down,but putting it all back-trogether,you'll be Thankful in the end !
