For a perfect, crisp, vector type image, like on the cap and the logo on the end of the clutch lever, crayons were used.

It looks ok, but I suggest vinyl next time.

Do you have a diagram for the Ultima box?

You should create a similar "V" to capture the bottom of the tire.  It is a good idea for the back as well, but optional in my opinion.  On trailers with channels, I have seen the tire "walk" over to one side until constrained by the flange on really long trips.  I realize your rig has a fairly confined space already and the wheel could only move so far, but being such a simple job it is cheap insurance.  Plus, it has to be easier on the tire being clamped into the v with twice the bearing area, though I've never heard of that being an issue.  Going to be a nice project!

I agree, if you look at post 50 at the top of the page, you'll see that the bottom is bent in a v shape. Its not quite at an acute of an angle, but it is a v none the less, and also angled forward which should help as the wheel will be trying to "roll" into the front v on the upright.

The rear will not have a v shape, since the bikes I will be towing will have several different widths of tires ranging from8" wide on the tw to 4" wide on most other stuff. I will have tie downs for the rear of the bike as well to keep it planted, and will likely have a piece of alloy diamond plate where the rear wheel sits to try to help keep it from moving around as well

I decided that I didn't trust my math enough, so I decided to bring a set of tires in, one is for a 21" dirt bike rim and the other is the stock tw200 front tire. Both fit like a charm and it should also work for pretty much any size in between. If anything the front "v" is a bit on the wide side for skinny dirbike tires, but I had to make it wide enough to accommodate the tw200 knobby. I can always make an adapter than slides over that v and makes is narrower if I have too.

Hahaha.  You guys are hilarious.   ::)

Vinyl, gum arabic, shellac, Sharpie marker, tusche, china markers, crayons, spray paint, etc are all used as a resist. For a perfect, crisp, vector type image, like on the cap and the logo on the end of the clutch lever, vinyl was used.

Sounds great.  That will be a fun bike.

I would probably use some vinyl for the masking.

Electrical / Ultima Wiring. Problem with turn signal and hi beam
« Last post by Logolibre on Today at 11:24:01 »
Hi guys

My bike is a Honda CB750 F Boldor (1982). I made a new wiring using the Ultima kit.
And everything works well, except for the turn signals and the high beam.
They do not work at all, although the wiring is all connected correctly, and everything seems to be working. But, passing through the Ultima block, they categorically refuse to work.

Control panels for turn signals are custom, by analogy of the Harley's (Left - left turn button, right - right turn button).

Perhaps there are some tricks when connecting or something else? Independently could not find the answer.

P.S. When connecting turn signals directly, bypassing the block Ultima - they work fine. But I want to do everything right.
