    I finally decided on the name Jinxed because this old bike fought me the whole way. I wanted to give it a few more dents, but no dents were removed during this build. So if dents build character this 1936 Shelby has a plenty of character. I was unable to complete my original mission to make the bike look similar to my Shelby GT500KR, time got the best of me, so I went in a hot rod direction.
    Here's what I came up with, I hope you like it.

    This old light has been with me for a long time, so the Shelby is going to have it's turn with the light.

    Sweet bike! Combining the Dana with a kickback is brilliant.
    My favorite part is the battery box...looks very familiar....
    Cheers!

    Thanks Doc.
    I originally used that battery box on my Jetflow back in 2012 to power my headlight because I never thought I would get a tank. Then it set on the shelf after finding a tank for the Jetflow. This is the first time the box has seen daylight in a long time.

    Thanks for all the great comments.
    The Dana has its quirks, but its something you can get used to. To shift the kickback or apply the brake the peddle has to travel back a 1/4 rotation to shift or brake. When the peddle makes the transition from coming up and starting down you feel free play in the Dana for a split second. On the positive side, the Dana shifts quick and positive, and you have a gear ratio for anything you want to do, with this combination. It's no Shimano 6 speed hub, but the cool factor is awesome. I would build it this way again.

    Took Jinxed out for a ride today. I found out that if you keep pressure on the peddle after the peddle hits the bottom of its rotation and starts back up a few inches, it makes a smooth transition to the other peddle heading down. Eliminating that split second of freeplay.
