fc53 and Ds 42
This little hump between the springs was used on 42 springers. This is a tough bugger to find. I have seen them on xa forks wr forks and big twin forks!
This is a rolling chassis that my friend and I put together a couple days ago. It is a 42 el that my dad and I are building for a friend in Texas. It is so nice! It will be skyway blue with all the goo gaw shit on it. I am excited for this bike!
OOOO check out the early brazed hub and one of our grease zercs. That's right, we make our own grease zercs. I am obsessive over little details like this!
I also made some good headway on the 53! The motor and transmission are mounted for good. I am going to put a pair of s3 tires on it today!
I tried mounting this oil filter and did not have much luck with it fitting the way that it is supposed to. I get pretty frustrated with reproduction parts that dont fit. I am not sure which route I will go on the oil filter, I'll think about it over the weekend and make a decision next week.
