OK, working on the rear fender and getting a two way tail light rigged up. Need running light and brake light to get it tagged for road use.

I tried the same Acerbis universal unit that worked so well on my 490 but the 465 has a completely different rear fender layout so there was no way to get it to fit well and look good.

I tried a few other things and finally gambled on a Preston Petty IT rear fender with the light mount and lens. The fender didn't fit well at all but I did manage to fit the lens to the original fender with some grinding and shaping.

Once the lens, etc. was all mounted up, I installed the fender and discovered that the rear sub frame is very tweaked. How in the heck did I miss that? The fender is really jacked off to the left. Ugh.













Next, I'm going to drop the bike off at a local welding/fab shop and have the kickstand repaired and reworked. Also going to have them fab up a small package rack where the stock tool pouch mounts. Maybe they'll have an idea or two on how to attempt straightening the rear sub-frame.

As my Honda buddy in Michigan likes to say, "He (in this case Greg) must have a crosshair on his rearview mirror so he knows exactly when to fan the clutch!"

Not yet, Rick. I want to make sure it's all going to work first. Once it passes the Sheriff's safety test and I can get a tag and title, I'll go back and finish that detail. Hopefully we can get the frame straightened out at least part way.

Default She's a Roller



I finished installing and adjusting the front brake cable and then it was time. Off the lift, out the door and into the sunshine for the first time since tear down.

Time to load her into the trailer with the Princess (our 2001 Indian Scout) for a trip to the fab shop tomorrow.








Looks kind of funny without the gas tank, etc. but she looks more like a motorcycle than not now.








With the bike out of my tiny shop and able to step back a bit and get some perspective, the rear subframe is REALLY bent. Getting up above the back end and standing a bit back from it, the seat doesn't even line up with the main frame backbone coming down off the steering head.

We'll see if this fab guy has any ideas on straightening. Otherwise what, start looking for another frame? I can't imagine the bike feeling "right" trying to ride it like that. Perhaps even some handling issues? I don't know.

Or as my lovely spokesmodel and bike pusher said, "That's the most bent, non-running $2,500.00 motorcycle I've ever seen!" She does not mince words.
