    Hello Alan,
    How hard was it to get 3 tubes to start into neck forging at same time?

    It wasn't bad at all, it was easily done by hand. Everything lined up perfectly afterwards as well. Not what I was expecting, especially putting my faith in an eastern block casting!

    I've made a little headway, I've mocked up the dash and installed the cups in the neck

    And I'll be finishing the tranny and starting on the rear wheel rebuild

    Finally finished the tranny (that kicker is looking way to inviting) and installed the sideboards with the footboards for fitment. The rear hub is almost complete with spokes and a rim on the way. Fitting up the seat tee also, have to mount the u-bracket and lowered pogo.

    Alan,
    Did you weld or braze the neck casting? Can you provide more detail on the installation? Thanks.

    I tig welded it. It took some time because I didn't want the frame to get too hot. I initially was going to braze it but the new neck had a little too much space around the top tube. Once it's painted you'd have to look really hard to find the tig welds

    Did you use a through pin in the casting holes or just weld to the tube slide into them? Thanks for the reply.

    I used pins on the casting holes
