what diesel you get???

So for my real reason, Has anyone else that you know of done your mod? Ive only come across swapping the stem on springers and yours.

well Im about to be balls deep in the swap.

I took a bit of a leap of faith and read your writeup 100 times, came up with a plan and got a neck in the mail from a machinist i got a hold of on ebay. Measurements are good so im just waiting for the right weekend. I live in a travel trailer so space is even more limited than your apartment lol. Im not going to put a drill press on the bike because i believe that the cut neck on the honda needs to be a straight cut yes, but since the parts are all going into the machined neck, not worth the time. Not to mention i dont have drill press. I figure with a portaband i can cut it with a 16th of square.
I also am going to have the neck in the freezer, i got it to shrink a .002 so that will help in pressing it. I have some scrap sheet metal to fill in the bottom of the cast neck. races and cups to install and then a 4" over springer. I cant wait.

I may be fucking shit up, or not but either way i thank you for your time in writing that write up. At first i was like fuck, i dont get it, something isnt adding up, but actually it is all there if you read carefully and that will keep the ducks from trying it so, well done.

Ill post my stuff on here eventually but if anyone gives a fuck ill post on my instagram as it happens @themandoozle

THanks
Chad

Nice cost saving mod. Just thinking out loud but has anyone just cut off the stock neck to weld on a Harley size piece? Or renting a chop saw or using a band saw would work too...perhaps...Though I still remember scaring the crap out of myself using one of those gas powered diamond blade monsters fire fighters use to cut people out of wrecked cars...
did the trick on my concrete block built in grill to fit in a larger gas grill (some moron thought they needed to fill all the block with motar...nice! I did finally win and even kept all my digits.. .lol)

you run into alignment issues unless you have a frame jog, even still would be a lot more work. I did this mod with out "machining" the shadow neck. I cut it with a hand hack saw even. Its so easy hacking a neck completely off and putting a new one on would be insane. Also asking for issue with cops in certain areas. The few times Ive been pulled over they always look at my neck.

I'm just spoiled as I've got plasma cutter and 220 welders at my disposal , but I do recall seeing a similar process but using a lathe while with the production company at Discovery Channel. I get and applaud where your coming from and yes the Vin definitely can't get jacked up or you get to have the DMV charge you for a damn bonded title (had to do that with a 40 Ford truck project years ago) & more out the nose for a new number plate to be affixed. At that point cheaper especially if its a customer build to just get a frame with a mso. Creative and that's the name of the game using what you've got in front of you....but when new Harley parts start appearing the cops really will be tailing yah ....lol
