Just keep watching those Bonneville videos on youtube and you'll get there.

Looks like a fun build!

Frame is cleaned up, going 3" z on the front, split bones and transverse spring. Quarter elliptical on the rear.
How many head studs does the flat head have Mike. I'm thinking 21?
If it is an early enough one some of them did come with stock aluminum heads. I also believe that Canadian heads were aluminum.
This link may help you.

Definitely a pile of parts worth putting together. That is an A frame though, not T. The factory aluminum heads point to early 21-stud. Looking good so far...

Yep BED, model A frame for sure.

Well after mocking up the engine, the steering box, cross steer link, front end and grill I found out real quick that I have 10 pounds of stuff going into a 5 pound bucket.
