    Today I was able to get more things ordered that are needed to complete this project. Today I ordered an engine stand, rocker support shafts, inner cam bearings, and cam plate bearings. I also started pricing out other parts that are still needed so I can decide who I will purchase them from, even though I know where they will come from.

    Pretty much everything has been ordered to complete the engine. The crank, compensator, clutch, a 3 phase charging system and a +1 oil pan is on the way. There are still some things that are needed but I am real close.

    I am still gathering parts but am almost done with that. Still need the carb, new covers, bagger brace, belt, motor mount, acr's and harness and support plates. Can't really get the support plates until all is together to determine if I need offset plates or not.

    Red, going with the CV 51mm.

    As far as the rest of the project goes, I have purchased the carb, and the rocker support plates are being made. Now it's just a matter of verifying gearing of primary drive "clutch basket" and get the basket ordered. After that, I will start taking the engine out of the bike and clean the frame and polish the chrome covers.
