Doug - thanks for the thread. My "Sportster Based Projects" list has one more entry on it now.

Both of my goldies at first tried to rake the Doggles off their heads. But after a few miles riding in them I guess they realized what they're for and liked not having the wind in their eyes, because now they'll nose into the straps when we're getting ready for a ride.

Actually I have two... both Goldies. Bailey is the one pictured above. The camera's wide angle lens makes her head appear larger than it really is relative to her body.
She is around 55 pounds. My other pup, Roscoe, is about 80 pounds. They're both about two years old and hopelessly in love.

There's just no way for them to comfortably ride in the Velorex cockpit at the same time.

I have dreamt of such a sporty. But I figured mine would start out with an old ironhead of some sort...

Well, Im waitin on some parts for the sporty.
So, I figured it was time to start puttin the Indian back together. its only been on the stand for over a year, but still, its time.

Motor is all redone, just gotta install the tranny, primary, etc.

get everything ready for the clutch



Now for most stuff, I prefer Indian over HD, but the clutch setup sorta sucks. The basket is threaded, & goes inside the trans, where a big nut holds it in place. You gotta take alot of stuff off to get to the clutch. taint a 5 minute job.

I still have the clutch removal tools the guy made for me in Siberia in 06. They still work pretty good.



the wrench was cut out from a metric wrench to fit, & the other piece with the bar goes into the clutch hub to turn it.

The guy was a friggin genius. Not many people in the US could repair an Indian trans case, let alone someone with old soviet era machines, russian bearings, etc, & had never seen anything that wasnt metric.

but they work fine!





when we had the bike all done, & he charged me a whopping 60usd for 14 hours of work, he gave me the tools he made. He said 'when am I gonna work on another Indian?'
good point.

As Im working, the cats are hangin out watchin each other.
The big one is Shitty (short for shop kitty) He is king of the house, & the whole world if you ask him.

the little one on the seat is a stray that showed up last week. its real cold here, so I'm lettin him sleep in the garage. Shitty does not approve, & smacks him whenever he gets too close. Tough, Im not gonna let him freeze....



so the primary is all in, maybe I'll get a bit more done on it tomorrow.

Be good to see the old chief back on the road again Doug. You got another adventure planned with her in the future?

I'm so glad my favorite show is back on!!!! Looking good, Doug. All the stuff I hear about Russian fix-it guys makes me feel like a total slob.

I'm not Doug, but...

It is the clutch. The lever it is attached to actuates the clutch rod which you can see extending out through the hollow trans shaft. It works on the clutch. I had a very similar setup on my 61 pan back in the 70s. Sorry, it's hard to see here.

You slip it around the dog's neck and the harder they pull the tighter it gets.
