Just about there. Removed the stabilizers and am working on the rubber motor mounts. Probably try and get that done tonight after the kids go to bed.

Rigged up some ratchet straps to support the motor while I worked it out of the frame. It was kind of tough to do by myself but I got it done. Next step will be to cut off the rear end!

Good start... So - after you're done with the rear, have you considered adding a few degrees of rake to the front ?
Here's a pretty good read - starting with post #5

Agreed - consider it motivation... (at least for me it is)

Keep at it. I'm diggin' the King tank in the first pic. I hope you keep it and don't switch to some goofy stretch tank or an old Honda hump looking tank. The King tank is classic chopper.

Yeah, I like the king tank too. I might do a Cole Foster tank, but if I don't it'll be this one. I love that dudes bikes.
