That's so cute...your daughter looks like such a girly girl but there she is hanging with some dirty work! I guess you needed to make it seem like a voluntary thing instead of forced, good trick mister. :-)

You're creating awesome memories for your little one just like your dad did for you and your sister. Looking forward to the continuation of this build

Awesome, are you keeping the belt drive? My friends dad has an 84-ish dyna and its chain driven, im really jealous, because the potential of that hog should he (the son) ever get it, he could do some serious mods just as u are.

Im not sure yet, I know ill need to buy another belt (and they aint cheap) because this one is dry-rotted, so depending on what my pops says on which is easier to maintain and whatnot is prob what ill wind up going with. I do remember that his shovel was chain. Me personally i'd like to convert it. I knkw one thing that is deff going to be converted is to add a kick start just incase the ol starter decides to out on me one day i wont be stranded in the middle of now where.

Oh and im not trying to pull any reverse phyco on her (hehe) i really want her to remember this as a good time in her life and wheather or not that means getting her hands dirty or if she could care less it doesnt matter to me.

Is putting the kick start back on as simple as hooking up something that once ws there but is currently missing? I've always wanted kick start on all my bikes (i think it should be there because like you said the battery always dies at the worst time) and i have been stranded because of the battery on more than one occasion

That is a good question I just googled it and found this website http://www.tejasthumpcycles.com/tran...Kick-Start.htm their kits seem pretty cheap and it looks as ez as replacing the trans cover with the cover that has the arm and gears in it. I could be wrong and thats just guessing at it from the looks. I'll ask my pops tomorrow whats all involved.

I think that it is awesome that you get to share this passion with your dad. My dad bought me my first bike, but he never caught the bug like the rest of us. He likes to ride but just never could get used to Houston drivers. Also really cool that your dad is on the forum as well. I would love to hear some of his stories. Good luck with the build. Enjoy every moment of it. A 3 generation build makes me believe there is hope for the human race yet!!!! Looking forward to following this thread.

That's groovy man! Only thing me and dad ever shared was a joint and a beer! Keep us updated on the progress. It's amazing what a little elbow grease will do.

Wow....dad came over tonight and was hitting it hard with the knowledge on what not to do and what to do if and when this happens. I'll give yall an example, so my dad says "if youre bike ever dies going down the road then take a ball point pen and touch this spot on this wire and wha-la youre bike is back on the road, and if that didnt fix it look right here and do this and wha-la youre back on the road." <- those two secrets got him a free helment once and a free road trip!

So we did manage to actually turn a wrech and my febel lil brain was trying to soak it all up.

We pulled one side of the exhaust off, primary cover, clutch, took carb apart which my dad took part of it with him to soak in carb cleaner, and the funnest thing was hooking a battery up and spinning it over to check for spark and see if there were going to be any "scary" noises. <- that was awesome!
I learned quite alot in such a short period of time, and i will post pics tomorrow of what was done.
One of the more interesting things my dad noticed was that my bike has the RARE adjustable rake front forks on it.
Ive got a more put together list of some replacement pieces i need, just to get it on the road ,and will be making some phone calls tomorrow to get those ordered.

This looks like an awesome project! Subbed for the updates! I can't wait to see the finished product of something that has so much sentimental value to you. That's when people tend to do their best at what ever they do since it means something to you.

It's going to become something great that many of us are going to be jealous of! haha
