So Been thinking what i can stick on the side of the tank.
This is what am liking so far
Hello postman! Only waited 3 weeks for the four of them!
Been awhile since i done any thing (vtr motor swap,srad engine f**ked)
Good news is i got the my tank back from my mate who soda blasted it for me
Only thing is i've lost my air box some where in the work shop
O and i got a new helmet
Nice to see things progressing! Keep up the good work
Kinda pulled the BMW out of the cover Wednesday.
Fitted the stacks to (for show )
Think it looks mean
Had to make some steel inserts from old car exhaust
The plate is bolted to the air box which will be sprayed black
That looks mean
Think you've made a mistake mounting them on the path side as you'll suck kids into them causing a misfire.
Looks mean as ****, Can't wait to see it finished.
Re-thinking the rear sub frame at the moment (i had what i wanted in my head) but this would not work.
Stupid me did not think about wheel movement,tyre size etc
So i've got to re-do it all again
All i need now is to find a pipe bender and some tubing
I want this
So got the sub frame sorted kinda, need to make some shock mounts up again and clean the welds up.
Apart from spraying it black am happy with the way it looks so far
More of the sub frame got the grinder
Mock up test
Weld in place for
Busy day working on the shock mounts and sub frame again
Putting extra bars there to help cope with stress
Some bracing to and shock mount out of thick stainless steel
The seat pan is made!
All I need to do is paint the sub frame to stop it rusting and get some seat foam
Tonight i've been messing around with wiring and removing lots of it. Wired the rear light and hide all wiring going to it.
Not sure what to do about the water header tank yet tho.... I've got a idea tho, along the lines of some vintage oil can...... I'll keep you posted
loving this !
Good work enjoying keeping an eye on your progress.
What you think about using this for the water header/catch tank?
Old brass fire extinguisher
Love it, aslong as its not too big lol. Much more pro than my lemon zing botttle
£15 seems cheap for that. Going to cut it down tho
Better then £40 for a castrol oil can tho!!
