Started out with this nice 1974 74" FXE superglide.
It was in pretty fantastic shape aside from the
Fallover on the right side. I rode it home 50 miles after
I bought it and it didn't skip a beat.
I shipped the frame to haifleys and got it back a few weeks later.
They added a cool feature to their hardtails with the
Rear trans crossmember cover and lower fender mount.
I decided to try and use as many OE harley parts
As I can on this build, and since I'm running a spool
Up front it only seemed appropriate to go juice drum.
For this build I'll use a 67-72 setup on a midstar hub
To take advantage of sealed bearings.
I had to buy two different sets of OE juice setups
So I could get both an original chrome drum and
Late backing plate. I also got a 67-72 axle setup complete w spacers,
Which I will probably need to modify. The haifley tail has HCI
Axle plates w the mechanical stay. Since I'm running juice
I am relocating the brake stay mount to the underside
Of the axle plate; it was also causing interference with the
Backing plate, so it was a necessary job.
I freshened up the backing plate w a new wheel cylinder.
Shoes look relatively new so they are good to go.
For anyone using a 67-72 juice setup, replacement
Bearings use OEM #8503RS and replacement wheel
Cylinders can be found by Raybestos under part #WC9004.
Here are the headlights I'm going to use.
These are old Hella fog lights off a Porsche or VW or something.
Pretty common, nothing too special.
I'll make a headlight bracket that will tuck these in nice and tight.
Erick from Jakes Customs painted it and offered it for sale in classifieds.
I jumped on it bc I wanted to try the narrow sportster tank.
I struggled to find an original horseshoe tank in decent condition,
So I picked up a repop. I think this is older, maybe from the 90s or something.
I am building up a set of wheels using polished 18/21 Morads
On a bob's triple peak spool hub with 5/8 bearings and SS
Spokes and nipples. As mentioned previously, rear wheel
Will be using a repop 67-72 midstar hub in chrome.
I bought a set of Firestones for this build,
Because I wanted to try the ANS as well as that cool
New 2.75" front ribbed tire they're making,
But after 3 months of waiting, I said fuck that trendy
Tire and just ordered Avons instead.
I measured trail out to 4", so it shouldn't be that bad in the handling dept.
The fender is one of those 4-3/4" manta ray fenders from lowbrow.
I'm actually super pleased with it. Very burly, and the fit was spot on.
I am working to get the fender and sissy all buttoned up
So I can get to the seatpan next weekend.
First order of business was to get the rear
Wheel centered in the frame.
The late juice drum sets the wheel ab a 1/4"
Or so to the non drive side, so I dished the
Wheel over to get everything square.
