    The picture disappeared. There was a picture of the clamp when I posted it. Sorry it didn't stay. I even previewed it.

    This project started out with a bang. Excitement, on our part, was high. We had the time to work on it each week, and we made slow but steady progress.

    The excitement level was high, with the thought of riding it not too far in the future a constant fuel to "get it done"!

    For over a year we have been extremely short on time to dedicate to this project, and the bike has sat, largely ignored.

    Every now and then we would have a few hours to spend on it. The hours we have spent, here and there, have been more out of obligation than excitement at getting it done. (since we knew that it might be another month or two before we could work on her again)

    We have so many pressing projects, that we literally do not know when we will have the time to make this bike what we want it to be.

    I still have the vision for it, am still looking forward to riding it, but it is with regret, but a realistic assessment of priorities, that we are setting this project aside indefinitely.

    Rather than work on it in starts and stops, it will sit, lonely against the wall, under cover, until we have the time to finish it out quickly.

    At some point, the time will be available, and the fire to get it done stronger than ever, and we'll get her done!

    Devin and I sat down last Friday and started back on the SBS Chop!

    Almost 2 years of her languishing in the corner, and she's about to start getting some attention again.*

    This week, we're looking at her with new eyes.

    When we sat down to get back on this a week ago, our initial "to-do" list was 2 pages long. After sitting down with the bike, late last week, that list grew to over 3 pages.

    There are so many balls to juggle on a build like this…

    We’ve been away from the bike for well over a year, and getting back immersed in all the details has taken this last week.

    ...one of (the many) things we are looking at is we have one small space, and we want/need/probably won’t be able to fit 4 things in this space-

    1. Part of the exhaust
    2. Rear brake MC
    3. Oil Tank/Battery Box
    4. Chain Tensioner


    We’ll get it figured out. It takes time & some creativity, but we’ll get it done without compromising the vision of the build.

    Some photos coming soon.

    We are back full swing into this build!

    Time is still short, but we have a lot of motivation, so we're making the time!

    First thing we did was measure/place the oil tank, battery box, & rear brake master cylinder in place and see if there would be enough room for a chain tensioner.

    Side note- I was going to try and get by without running a chain tensioner, however, Doc Flynn was over a couple of weeks ago (he's been building hardtails for decades), and he was absolutely sure I need one. He pointed out where even the smallest amount of slop on decel would end up ruining the paint on the fender cut out.

    So, we are going with this chain tensioner...



    ...and it looks like, with some creativity...

    ...it's gonna be pretty tight...



    ...we will be able to fit it and still keep the M/C, oil tank, battery box and exhaust where we want.

    Next up was revisiting the wiring.

    Here is a diagram of the stock wiring-



    Here is what we had it reduced down to originally-



    And this is the new diagram we came up with yesterday.



    Even simpler!

    Looking at everything with fresh eyes...



    We will be ditching the bracket seen in the photo below, in favor of a billet bracket that we'll be cutting to go around the frame and around this coil.



    Built into the bracket will be the on/off switch.

    Whether we put the coil to the side of the frame tube (like pictured above) or to the front of the frame tube...that will be decided after we look at it both ways with everything else in place.

    The other things we are working on...and if anyone has any input/ideas/photos/drawings, we welcome them...

    1. We have two hydraulically actuated brake light switches, pictured below.



    Goodridge 03-6939

    We decided we did not like them. They are too big/bulky. We want to find something smaller to trigger the brake light when either the front or rear brakes are applied.

    2. Still looking for the ideal front brake M/C-brake lever set up.

    3. We are working on some design ideas for axle covers and a steering stem bolt. Any ideas welcome!

    4. I need to choose some good looking battery cable. The run will be less than a foot for each the + & the -. I could go with plain black...but am entertaining other looks.

    5. We are still deciding between modifying the stock shift and brake lever, buying some, or coming up with a nice design. Any ideas welcome!

    6. The steering head is going to be quite open below the headlight, so we need to come up with a nice design for a neck badge.

    7. Need to locate the wiring to be used that will be visible...like wire to headlight. I'm thinking something like this.



    There are a bunch of other little and big things, that we pretty much have nailed down. Just a matter of doing them.

    Next week will be a short one, and the time on the SBS Chop will be spent mostly cutting stuff and getting things in order. Then week after next we will be on the actual bike installing.

    I was over in the shop earlier.* Devin had just started the drawing in the Fusion 360 software for the billet coil holder.

    It will have a cut-out for this on-off switch in it.





    We also received the chain tensioner in the mail today...



    ...Friday we will be working on the bike again, and one of the things will be figuring out what modifications will be needed for the weld-on ears.

    Looks like brainstorming 2.0 ... ... and I'm loving it.

    Will you be doing anything to dampen the vibration to the coil?
