Hey Gentlemen!

Back from vacation.... so time for the bike again :) Started construction on the swing arm. Made some measurements for dimensions. Grounded the fabricated parts to right dimensions and tacked it all together. Then made som drawings for the sheetmetal reinforcements of the swing arm and send them away to be lasercut. Finally made some new excenter aluminum pieces for ajustment to the swing arm angle, the ones made earlier were a bit to much "off center" wich was bad for bearing construction.... Next thing, finish the swingarm, then front end.

That means making a new steering pin for the triple clamps and aluminium pieces that hold the bearings in place in the steel steering head.

Hopefully the bike is on its wheels within a few weeks ;D

Pictures:

And again:


And check the wheel for the sheetmetal reinforcement:


That's it for now, next construction day this weekend :)

Best regards,

Loek

Very nice work Loek! I'm not sure how I missed it but I'm hear to watch and maybe learn something.

Missed this before, but I'm following now for sure.  Can't wait to see how it all shakes out.

loekm, I keep asking Egli questions my ignorance of the marque is showing.  Your swinger is looking every bit as precision built as the rest, my question, is that the same style of design as the Egli chassis uses or your original?  Top drawer alright.

Such nice looking work! I have yet to track down a decent local source for oval tubing.....

Gentlemen,

Thanks for the compliments... Very cool you guys keep watching the build and comment!

@50Gary: I watched a few other build around the internet very close the last 2 years... and what i'm building now is somehow a combination off the different builds. So I don't know if the flat oval tubing is EGLI original or not. I just like the looks of it... good combination between rectangular and round.... 8)

@Swagger: I think sourcing parts is sometimes quite difficult. I find myself in the absolute luxury that i'm allowed to use the workshop at work and given that, I can source all the materials with the big "industrial" suppliers.... and I can tell you, it makes a hell of a difference. All my luxury situation brings more respect for the builds people finish in their sheds or garage!!

The weekend will be construction time again ;D so updates will be coming sunday.

Best regards,

Loek
