A few clearances issues to sort out...



Well that stinks.

Aye, sure does. I knew I was going to have to modify the other end, but not the headers.

What's a bobber/chop without a little rake? It does suck you have to mod it though but just add the rad and go for it. ;D

Ok, so house is nearly complete, work is getting a bit slow... must be bike time! I've been busy ordering all sorts of bits and bobs to get a good go at this thing over the Xmas break. I've got some custom fender blanks coming from Western Australia, I've shortened those pesky exhaust headers (just waiting on some bling before I weld them back together), stripped the tank and split it in two because I thought it was full of rust (it wasn't, but still needed to split it for other things anyway), learnt to lift-start TIG (how nice is TIG welding!?), and made some handlebar switches.. twice. Well, 1 and half times anyway. I think that's the bulk of progress so far...













Switch-housing attempt no. 1:









Sooo... attempt no. 2!













Success! And then my inherited el-cheapo bandsaw broke so I'm waiting on some new tyres for it to split the switch housings...

Been watching this. I'm intrigued. I have a weird thing for copper and brass tied in with motorcycles.  ;D

Me too. ;) A bit of a rough mock-up (fenders need to be shaped and modified to fit right, but it's starting to look like a motorcycle):
