I think I just sent you an e-mail in response to a PM.

I also have a bare "Oil-In" frame w/ swingarm, and a couple of useable wheels if you are at "Step 1" in your quest...

Go to the newsstand buy a Walnecks or Cycle Trader.
then go home take it to the room with running water do as required and read. Bet you find something there(in the magazine). The net is a wonderful place but you cant take it to the krapper.
Newnan? you ever near 385 Walt Sanders Memorial Drive?

oh heavens yes!! sorry, i hadn't been following this thread --

gray, here's what you do:

call beno rodi in winder. he has a butler building FULL -- wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling -- of british stuff. bikes, frames, engines, parts. most of his triumphs are units -- only one preunit that i know of. he's not online at all, and you have to pay w/ check or cash. but if you go out there with a pickup truck and a couple bucks, i bet you can find something to bust your knuckles on.

Beno Rodi
(770) 867-1676

also check out www.georgiacycledepot.com -- they always have a few projects up on their website. ian is a hoot.

I called him a few months back on Johnny's advice when I was looking for another project bike. Real nice person. He said he had tons later models and only a few early sixties bikes. Definately worth a trip out just for the experience.

Hey, What's this oil on the floor?

I to need parts for the following project. This is what she looks like now. Next winter she will go in an extended springer and come out a complete bobber. I will be shopping for a good non OIF front frame section with no cuts or rake, stock front forks with wheel and brake, and other little goodies to make the conversion. I am tired of needing a football field to turn around and it's time for a change. Thanks for the info on Beno Rodi, I'll give him a try.

I hope she will look more like this machine when done. I do like this bobber.

I just got a client project with a '53 6T chopper with 12" over tubes, he wants a springer. Why don't we do a trade? The forks I have are '71 with conical front hub (with scoop). I can cut them down to any length you want and have them re-threaded. The stanchions are in good shape.

Thanks for the offer Paul, but I am going to keep the old springer and raked frame. You never know when I may want to go back to the 60's again, or who knows what other project will pop up. Thanks again.

I look at your bike now and flash bac to about 74/75. There was an article in Rod & Custom magazine on the builder of The California Kid movie hot rod car. He was asked (by a young crumb catcher) why there were flames on the car. His answer was something like "...cause its a hot rod"
Ain't none of my business but I'd keep your chop and build a bob.

did you find a scoot yet?
