So I'm back at this again....

Motor's ready for assembly, lower end's all rebuilt heads are done. I shitcanned that Santee frame and have now decided to purchase a complete Vtwin 1949 HydraGlide roller. Drop in my motor and trans and be done with it.

This is what I'm thinking


I ordered it with " restoration finish" which is black and parkerizing hardware. Black 16" wheels too. Comes with everything minus drivetrain. I can modify to my liking as it goes together. It may smell a little like paddy water but I'll be RIDING

I bought a lift. Yeah it's the Harbor Freight one and I had a "potty mouth"ing coupon so WTF it was $329 out the door.

Fits in my Van


I will attempt to put this all together myself over the coming fall/winter. Should be a total fiasco as I can barely change a spark plug. But I'll be able to say I "potty mouth"ed up everything MYSELF!

Cleaned up cylinders


Line boring






0.30 over Wiseco forged Pistons


Andrews J cam gonna reuse it

MSRP is $4913.68 for part # 55-2541, straight outta the new Vtwin Bobber catalog. 1949 Pan chassis black/parkerized with hand shift. Just add drivetrain.



I also ordered black inner/outer primary and chain, and a Vulcan Engineering auto advance dist. I have one on my shovel and like it.

Very much looking forward to this thread...always wondered about the fitment on those V-twin chassis...

I was reading this and eyeing my '52 frame...but it is already promised to my son. The replica ones are gorgeous though.

BTW that deep Maroon color in the pic you posted is beautiful. My dad had a 49' Ford that color, turned a lot of heads.

I'm undecided on color but that red is nice. My swingarm roller has deep
red tins that I call "Candy Apple Blood" was a blend done a long time ago so I may duplicate it.

From what I have always heard, the vtwin frames are quite good to work with, but there is always a chance of them getting tweaked in shipping. I would always have someone with a frame jig give it a going over first, but I assume many don't.

For comparisons sake, here is my '52 frame. It has some minor issues, someone changed the toolbox mount as well as the front tank mount, but otherwise it's pretty good. The first shot is just me being an ass...










Any detail shots you want, let me know.

Just got a rebuilt M-74B

The one I was using prior to motor rebuild worked fine but is a little crusty so I'll  rebuild it and have as a spare. Want everything on this to be new repop or rebuilt.

On the hunt for a generator now.....

Looks great, nice and clean, lol. I have not looked into the '52 that much, but I believe it should be the horseshoe toolbox holder on the '52, which is not a difficult switch to make. It's something I would do first if it were me.

Carb looks great too, I wish any of mine looked that good!
