Chopper bike build - PART 2

Guys I'm back!
I'm here to give you some motorcycle related post!hehehe...
 If you guys have been following us for so long,
I hope you still remember the post about my
home-built chopper part 1.
 Well, without further delay,
So this is the part 2 of it.

The last photo on part 1 was the
semi-completed swing arm assembly,

Now we have to cut the rear end of the frame
to weld the pivot brackets for the swing arm.

Here we are lining up the swing arm to
make sure everything were all centered.
On the front end we permanently fix the
fork neck to the frame.
The neck should be in 45 degrees.
Once we have attached the swing arm as well as
the front neck to the chassis, we installed the wheels.
Now we have a "rolling chassis".
After the rolling chassis,
we're ready to mock up the engine inside the chassis.
Supported by wood blocks, it gave us an idea on
how the motor would sit on the chassis.
The next part of the built was attaching
the motor to the chassis.
For that I had to make cardboard cut outs
(see those white cardboards below?) 
these patterns would be cut on metal plates...
The metal plates from the cut outs.
If you guys are wondering how they're cut out
from metal plates. This guy was the one who did it for us.
Even though we didn't have water jets or plasma cutters,
he made metal cutting very interesting to watch 'cause
he just traced the outline of our patterns on the metal then
he followed the outline with his acetylene torch free hand,
he only did this for one of a kind pieces...
Using a laser beam we made sure the
engine and chassis lined up.
During the motor mount we also mounted the
shock absorber on the swing arm and chassis.
Now we have partially mounted the engine to keep it
from moving around while making the other
brackets to secure the engine..
I promise it won't take that long to post the 3rd part of this.
I really don't know how many parts its gonna to be
because I really want to give the details on the build.
Until next time guys!!!
