    May 27, 2016, 17:00:13
  • Nj732port: oooh nah
    May 27, 2016, 17:00:24
  • Nj732port: im so farr off from painting anything right now i just want it running agin
    May 27, 2016, 17:00:45
  • vandito.cb: probably cheap as shit. how long could it possibly take to blast a frame? id try to get a PC lined up first so it doesnt rust if it sits for weeks.
    May 27, 2016, 17:01:18
  • Nj732port: ill be waiting motnhs for my decomp cable from japan
    May 27, 2016, 17:01:19
  • Nj732port: i out fellas cya later
    May 27, 2016, 17:01:37
  • adventurco: This dude that I used charges $75 for frame and swinger. Last time he did a bunch of random parts too but I had a guy quote me $250 once lol
    May 27, 2016, 17:24:57
  • vandito.cb: just for blasting? isn't that what PC would cost PLUS blasting beforehand?
    May 27, 2016, 17:25:41
  • adventurco: Yep should be I told him to go pound sand
    May 27, 2016, 17:26:25
  • vandito.cb: I hate people. people that charge out of the ass for nothing.
    May 27, 2016, 17:27:06
  • vandito.cb: there can't be any better feeling than a freshly cleaned and coated frame though. those 3 or 4 decades of grime just gone and replaced by fresh paint.
    May 27, 2016, 17:27:46
  • vandito.cb: plus the rusting process gets reset.
    May 27, 2016, 17:28:25
  • adventurco: Mostly to save myself money but I'd do side jobs for reasonable
    May 27, 2016, 17:28:36
  • vandito.cb: why not just grab a cheap gravity feed & compressor then hit it with epoxy for the meantime
    May 27, 2016, 17:29:30
  • vandito.cb: quick googles... looks like 155 for blasting and coating wherever this place is [link]
    May 27, 2016, 17:32:40
  • Extreme_250: Any tips on finding a speedo/led headlight that'd work for an sr250?
    May 27, 2016, 19:07:19
  • vandito.cb: 6v or 12v?
    May 27, 2016, 22:32:00
  • adventurco: $750 to have the top end rebuilt on the XL
    May 27, 2016, 22:37:27
  • adventurco: Yikes
    May 27, 2016, 22:37:40
  • Extreme_250: 12v lol
    May 27, 2016, 22:38:03
  • vandito.cb: figure out your fork diameter and get appropriate headlight brackets. any 12v bulb would work. Sonreir sells LED h4s.
    May 27, 2016, 22:42:09
  • vandito.cb: and check your speedo ratio too then find a speedo you like.
    May 27, 2016, 22:42:38
  • vandito.cb: and damn can probably pick up two motors for that price.
    May 27, 2016, 22:43:17
  • adventurco: Yep
    May 27, 2016, 22:53:42
  • adventurco: Goin to pull the valves out tomorrow and see how bad the seats are I may be able to get away with springs only and lapping, best case scenario
    May 27, 2016, 22:54:33
  • adventurco: but...inside of tank is clean. and i printed the dash for the cb360 finally
    May 27, 2016, 22:58:26
  • vandito.cb: any donors around you? if you could find another one for the same price that has everything you need that would be sex.
    May 27, 2016, 23:02:01
  • vandito.cb: hows it look?
    May 27, 2016, 23:02:10
  • adventurco: Pretty good. I used white for the prototype so I'm gonna see if everything fits then paint it black
    May 27, 2016, 23:05:57
  • adventurco: I dunno, If i could find a decent one with a title for a few hundo I'd be golden
    May 27, 2016, 23:06:27
  • adventurco: I gotta sell the GS550 ASAP before i start getting into this shitshow though
    May 27, 2016, 23:06:42
  • adventurco: or...what if i build a frankenstein bike out of the GS550 and the XL350....hahaha
    May 27, 2016, 23:09:26
  • vandito.cb: how much does it cost you in materials to print something like that out? I hear 3d printing is the future.
    May 27, 2016, 23:11:10
  • vandito.cb: the only one by me is upwards of $3k. most of the neglected/untitled bikes are just old CBs, GSs, etc.
    May 27, 2016, 23:12:39
  • adventurco: I dunno man, pretty cheap. I bought 5 spools of the material with the machine for around $50. That print in particular used maybe 3-4% of a spool
    May 27, 2016, 23:13:21
  • vandito.cb: spools of what? is it like a nylon material they use?
    May 27, 2016, 23:14:16
  • adventurco: its basically plastic
    May 27, 2016, 23:16:07
  • adventurco: well, its plastic.
    May 27, 2016, 23:16:15
  • adventurco: it basically melts it and lays it down in a certain pattern to make whatever you want
    May 27, 2016, 23:16:35
  • vandito.cb: just one of those things I've never seen in person. that's crazy can send the files too, no? for the "blueprint" i guess.
    May 27, 2016, 23:18:12
  • adventurco: Yeah you can email them or whatever, they end up being pretty small
    May 27, 2016, 23:24:37
  • vandito.cb: that's cool, man. what's your clientele base like?
    May 27, 2016, 23:26:07
  • adventurco: I dont do much with the 3d printer yet for my business, but a lot of 3d modeling for architectural stuff
    May 27, 2016, 23:26:43
  • vandito.cb: sounds lucrative.
    May 27, 2016, 23:41:13
  • adventurco: yeah it can definitely be that
    May 27, 2016, 23:43:05
  • adventurco:
    Today at 00:00:57
  • vandito.cb: test fit time.
    Today at 00:06:37
  • adventurco: I'm gonna need to get new toggle switches i think the ones I have are rectangular bases and they wont fit
    Today at 00:11:40
  • adventurco: or just use push buttons instead
    Today at 00:11:58
