MONDAY 10th February 2020 - HARLEY DAVIDSON FLSTF “FAT BOY”


PACK 15

A very quick assemble this time but that tends to be the way of things. There are build sections that take up a lot more time but occasionally the breakdown of parts gives us less to be doing.

STAGE 47 – MOUNTING THE INDICATOR

PICTURE 1

In this stage we get:

The Brake Pedal
The Support
The Foot Rest
The Spring
1 x Type F Screw
The Front Fender Harley Davidson Plaque

PICTURES 2 & 3

While this section is described as “mounting the indicator” and the instructions show just that, we do not actually get the indicator until Stage 48.

So, for now all we do is store the supplied parts away until some future time calls for their use.

STAGE 48 – THE REAR LEFT INDICATOR

PICTURE 4

In this stage we get:

The Rear Left Indicator and its Bracket

Again, the build instructions are “confusing” here as we receive the left-hand indicator but the build instructions call out stage 50 (not yet received) and cover the fitting of the Right Indicator.

Just be aware that for the build instructions for Stage 48 refer back to the details provided in Stage 47 😊

PICTURES 5, 6 & 7

The cables from the indicator lamp need to feed down the channel arrowed in pics 5 & 6.

All we then need to do is pull the wires through and press the indicator into the hole in the bracket.

PICTURE 8

We then need to go and find the rear fender.

PICTURE 9

We then feed the cable from the indicator through the hole in the rear fender.

PICTURE 10


The indicator bracket is press fitted using the pins in the bracket into the 3 holes in the fender.

This is a nice tight fit so care should be exercised when press fitting in place so that the plastic pegs are not broken off.

PICTURE 11

And when in place this is what the rear fender looks like.

We now need to store this safely away making sure the indicator light is protected so that it is not snapped off in storage.

STAGE 49 – THE REAR BRAKE

PICTURE 12

In this Stage we get:

Rear Brake Caliper
The Radiator
Brake Cable Cover

PICTURES 13 & 14

The instructions tell you to slip the brake cable cover over the brake cable but in the parts I received this was already in place.

PICTURE 15

We need to extract the Right half of the Swing Arm and 1 x type C screw from an earlier pack.

PICTURES 16, 17 & 18

The rear brake caliper fits over the green arrowed point on the swing arm and will be secured with the 1 x Type C screw through Blue arrowed hold in Picture 16.

Picture 17 is the hole in the caliper that the screw fits through.

Once fitted (Picture 18) we can store all of the parts safely away until the next pack arrives.

Thanks everyone for your comments and encouragement.

It certainly is taking on some shape and weight now.

Next few packs get interesting as we start to put some of the bigger assemblies together so looking forward to that.
