ya... tired of building bobbers, etc, Steampunk was the idea. there are a few on the internet, but half of them are graphics... as in, they don't really exist. it seemed like the right thing to do. the hulk was given to me about 5 years ago, it was in a garage fire & then spent a decade outside partially stripped. it is the most orphan bike I have ever worked on (and I used to restore Brit bikes). at the time no engine parts were available, just getting it to run is a long story. as for the rest... anything on the bike that is not available in a catalog is something I built
if I'm answering your question I assume the basic points have been addressed, such as: did you do a compression test? is it still on fire?
