Sportster Head Bearing Conversion

I bought this steering head conversion kit on line that converts the older head bearing set up from the 7/8" neck to a later 1" neck.  It also makes the neck taller to accept the longer fork stem.  Nice quality.

I was able to get the ratchet bushing deal straightened out after Nick machined the bushing to fit the spacer.  He did a real nice job.

I put the clutch together but am waiting on a new clutch cover and new adjustment nuts.

If Joe Hunt gets my magneto done next week this should be a runner.  They are putting in the hotter racing magnet so it should run good.  I guess it will be going up for sale due the never ending flow of expenses.
