My personal opinion would be to not build a bobber from that bike, but rather something more practical. Maybe a cafe bike with Euro type bars versus clip-ons.

Your pics are small. If you are using photobucket, when you put your cursor over the picture, it will bring up a table under the photo (when looking at your album) and the last entry will be the IMG link. Just click that link and the word copied will show up. Then go to your post here and just hit Control V or right click and select PASTE and it will put that link in your post. You can then do a preview before you submit the post to make sure you selected the right photo and it worked as it should.

regards,
Rob

Shaper - I took the liberty of posting your photos in larger form - hope that OK.

The idea is once you have uploaded them to the site you can do a similar thing to what SnakeOil explained above.

Of course I am encouraging him to build a bobber.
I would encourage someone to build a bobber too, if I could get the leftovers. The leftovers in this case could well be some of the hardest parts to get otherwise.

Good luck with your project. Love to see it closer to original.

Cheers,
Neil.

Shapers big project

Thanks jonkster, I appreciate the help. I guess you can say I am computer challenged. I think everything should be click and drag.
But I do continue to put out the effort to learn more about it.

Loctitekid, It is my intention to make this bike as near to original as I can possibly make it. Yes, I'm holding my breath waiting to hear from the friend with the parts. It will save me a lot of time and money looking for all of the parts I will need. I'm starting to make a list of things I will have to buy.
standard pistons, rings, cylinders, rear conical wheel, gasket kit, just to start with, I'm sure there will be more.

Today was a bad day. I had a stuck bolt in the head and took today to take it out.
As soon as I poicked the head up I saw it... a crack...It runs into the left exhaust valve on one side and down the case on the other. So now I will be looking for a new head along with the standard cylinders, pistons and rings. Might as well go for the bearings too.
