Title: 1977 GL1000 Double Deuce Hell Ride
Post by: irk miller on Feb 16, 2015, 01:03:51
It's probably too early to start a thread for this thing, but here we goooooo...

I just brought home this 1977 GL1000. 

(http://opp-m.com/3/0/0/8300/assets/pmEC28GE1xwllr6E.jpg)

It's still a bit in the air what will become of this monster, but one thing's for sure:  it will travel.

You know a trailer hitch and a small trailer and you could tow the XL with you and have the best of both worlds for trips.

I was thinking that or a side hack that would carry the XL.

  Thanks, Bud.  Not finding them in Augusta either.  This town is totally void of anything decent or vintage.  I got the 350 from Columbia and the GL from a buddy north of Charlotte.

Work on a front fairing begins. 
Somehow I have to figure out how to deal with the brake components on the lower triple. 
They seem to kind'a stick out there.

Or do what Joe and Troy did and I will one of these days, double banjo at master and dual lines. one to each caliper. better breaking and gets rid of the stupid crossover and all the extra connections.  Stainless of course.

Ha.  If I could get a K&Q seat, I could look at options for modifying that too.  ;)  Just playing with the idea of working out a VFR style seat and tail. 

(http://raresportbikesforsale.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/NC24_1.jpg)

There will be plenty of seat for comfort.  Just no passenger.  Also looking at multiple seat options that can be switched out...  so a touring seat option that could be installed for summer rides.

The cardboard pattern will be transferred to metal or glass. The hard edges softened and not such flat planes. Then prolly a 2-3" cushion on top.

Well heck man.. somehow in all my DTT travels I have missed this beast!! The GL is the million mile machine of touring world so be a friend and save a spot for a tow strap, never know when one of us Harley dudes will need a tug.

Love your metal work, kind of mid evil or viking IMO... I do think if you plan to get her? in the wind for big mile runs you might think of a second larger "wind wall" I pushed back for a long time, but now love the shark nose of the Road Glide buffeting and all lol... no chunk of glass is more stable in windy conditions.

The boxer 4 is my favorite motor just not this one... yet?

  Ha.  I'm thinking it all through.  Im'a just'a sketchin' fer now.  Trying to see how feasible or complicated, or even worthwhile all this is.  Even the front fairing isn't a given.  As an artist, a teacher and a professor, I know the only way to see how something will look is to make it.  You accomplish much more building (even if you don't use everything you build) things, then sitting around thinking about them. 

I know y'all are right about the wind wall, too.  There will be a CB750 in this garage within the next month that the fairing may end up on.

Role reversal. Fairing and seat pattern to the 750. The Retro Moto seat to the GL. The RM seat just so happens to share lines with the tank.

Take a rasp to the high points, sand. I like the stick on sanding discs. The hold. a curve well so they're as good as a block around contours.
Ready for another coat...

Not really. Each coat with a blade fills the low spots. Plus rasps, files and rifflers to take off the high spots and to carve it into shape.  We are creating the form to take a mold of.

The master is done. Ready for casting...

(http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/03/22/cc03afd40f61da1fee201a2a9202aced.jpg)
I'm a ceramicist, so I have lots'a clay and #1 Pottery plaster on hand. They work well enough and plaster at under $ .50/lb is cheap.  Paint a few coats of Murphy's oil soap over the master and polish with your finger between coats.

(http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/03/22/ccf2f0d982ede0aca4c69e53a784e5a3.jpg)
Mix, splash coat, setup to a Greek yogurt consistency, and spread over the splash coat. Easy peazy.

Lights mounted in the fairing. The same mounting points will be utilized for the frame mounts and a number plate on the front.

Close.  It's from a BMW.   It was a wrecked car, so the plastic casing is wore down in places and the nearest corner in the pic is broken off, but it's structurally all there.  Maybe I eventually replace it with one in better shape.

A year ago this Sunday I got married and moved into a small 3 bedroom house with a 1 car attached garage, which is full now with 2 1/2" bikes, a couple mini bikes and a 79 fiat spider. I started to roll my GT250 in the back "mancave" room and that's where my wife drew the line haha I am convinced though that shop size doesn't matter. However much room you have, you will fill it. My dad has a 60X70 barn that is full of snowmobiles, and we even had to start putting up pallet racks to store em on. He talked about building another building for "storage", but my mom shut that down pretty quick

Well, I bought this tank without a cap. This isn't exactly the most common piece out there, and I've yet to find an aftermarket replacement. So, with my $50 gift card to Dime City for volunteering at Ace Corner I took a chance on this aftermarket/universal jawn.  I had to pull out the burr bit to notch the tank and chamfer the inside ring if the cap.

(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/10/16/a5f82dd6c0a3b00083018ea383f465c2.jpg)

The rubber seal on the cap fits to the tank, but that top of the cap is too high from the tank. I'll get Mr E to machine a beauty ring to take care of that.

Ha.  I have had the thought of putting a turbo on this thing.  Air intake scoops could work there.  I'm thinking I'll fab up either a coolant tank or a separate reserve fuel tank to fit in the notch.  I've also considered storage of some kind, or an electronics box.  Either way, I'm going to fab some side panels that integrate with the tank and fit all the way to the rear tail piece, which lacks it's side panels.  The rear tail piece will be keyed and act like a mini trunk.

I'll use the fuel pump.  I don't know how it would affect fuel delivery to try to delete it. I'll plumb some metric pipe fittings in the two holes where the original petcocks went.

The outlet of the stock tank is a good bit lower than the inlet of the carbs. I suppose the pump is sort of  "lifting station". I can tell you that if you don't shut the petcock off sometimes fill a left cylinder with fuel.

I'm going to take a swing at restoring these wheels instead of buying new stuff. There's a lot of conversation on here about rust removers. I always promote phosphoric acid. It doesn't eat the metal and it converts the rust to iron phosphate. I took a wheel apart that has a very clean rim, but the spokes are super rusty. I threw half of the nipples into the acid overnight with excellent results. The first pic shows the difference between treated and untreated nipples. The spokes are pretty fucked, so we will see if it works on them. I threw the spokes into a drywall mud trough with the remaining nipples and the acid. I get Phosphoric Prep from Home Depot for about $14 a gallon.

I don't have a lot of hope for this set of spokes.   That has more to do with their looks, not function.  I'm confident there will still be plenty of tensile strength left.  One thing with doing this treatment- if there is too much rust, the spoke will just turn black as the entire piece will become iron phosphate.  You want the FePO4 to fall into solution.  Since rust expands so much, texture can be isolated to the surface.  Regardless, I have another wheel with less rusting on the spokes.  @ about $125 per rim for spokes, I think it's worth a shot.  It just costs me a little time and about $2 or $3 worth of acid.

Do you mix it down with anything or just straight?  How long can you leave metal in the solution?
Straight from jug it's 35 - 45%.  A common auto body solution is a mixture of phosphoric acid, distilled water and isopropyl alcohol.  Orthophosphoric acid is syrupy undiluted, so manufacturers dilute it for use.  You can buy it straight up, probably more cheaply, if you want to make some yourself.  I've seen 55 gallon drums for less than $200.  It's a component to Pepsi and Coca-Cola, so food grade batches are readily available and cheap.  I kept that first batch of nipples in solution for 24 hours.  As the chemical reaction occurs, it coats the metal and restricts further etching.  Not sure you can keep it in there too long.

  I may still have it.  If not, then E has it.  Neither of us have installed it on a bike yet.  I assume you mean just the light, not the fairing.  I can cast you a fairing, if you want one.

Georgia has no legal size limit on headlights for motorcycles.  They just require you have one that is illuminated.  The smallest headlights I've been able to find are the 2.5" projectors.  Just watch out for fog lights.  They don't work worth a shit for a headlight, and many vendors on eBay don't label their listings appropriately.

Agreed.  Green is leading, I think.  If red, I've seen them with orange lettering/no stripes and gold lettering and stripes.  I thought about red and gold if I went with gold USD forks.  It's looking like I'm going Marauder front end, so silver aluminum would be the accent color.

The issue with larger fairing is looks, they can be really ugly. I hate the vetter and Hondaline GL fairings, If you go that route try and use endurance racer fairings, they can look great on the GL, sigh boy or whatever posted a rad one on my GL thread.

Your work is creating random ideas in my head.

Has there ever been anything like an "All Star" build here?

Not to single anyone out or leave anyone out, there's just too many talented here, but I know these guys do these things well and this is just a thought for fun anyway, 01marc powdercoats a frame, xb conceives and implements a proper suspension, j-rod makes the rearsets,  crazypj builds the motor, sonreir builds awire harness, deviant makes the bodywork, ichiban..does whatever ichiban does, etc... (i thought a dotdotdot was appropriate there)

 It would be a large and complicated undertaking, however, imagine the bike that could be built.

VZ800 Marauder front end.  I'll machine the GL hub, run 17mm X 47mm X 14mm bearings and use a stock rear hoop to lace a 17" front wheel. The Marauder legs are 33" vs the stock 31" GL. With a 17" front wheel, the geometry doesn't change,

Mocking up the VZ front end, I have 4mm to make up. The top bearing doesn't seat in its race, so I can't get it tight. The lower race is 5mm into the steering tube more than it needs to be, so we'll start there with lining things up.

Not much, if any at all.  Holding them at the same time, they feel almost exactly the same.  I have not weighed either.  I figure the weight benefits will happen with modern components- SV650 calipers and modern 310mm rotors.  Overall, I'd like to see this bike weigh under 550lbs vs the advertised 595lbs.  Getting it closer to 500lbs would be a dream.

The 19 looks great and bigger is better with that motor IMO, but 17 offers lots of tire choices with decent pricing 16 is out of the question... were headed into knighthawk territory with that puny front tire clown bike look so 18 to compromise or 19 to assert the front :o

The 19 is already my vote
Title: Re: 1977 GL1000 Double Deuce Hell Ride
Post by: irk miller on Dec 30, 2015, 09:29:32
The nice thing about the 19 is it lifts the front end a bit, which for these bikes is something needed.  They aren't necessarily going to wind through the dragon like a sport bike.  I always thought of it as a muscle bike.  I can only assume the 19 will hold it upright and straight better on long cruises.  The one caveat is a 19 requires a custom fender bracket or fender all together.  A very small inconvenience in the grand scheme. 

As it sits in the pic, the forks are still 1/2" taller than stock, which is why I consider the 17 or 18.  Because, the next issue is spring rate on the front end.  I feel like there is too much compression off the lift.  I still have to call Racetech, but based on their online calculator, my weight plus the extra weight of the bike calls for 1.151 kg/mm springs and 1.0 is the closest. I'm likely ordering 1.0 kg/mm springs for the VZ forks to handle the extra weight and take some of the softness away.  I say all of this without having done anything with fork oil yet, and I'm under the assumption that I can't preload these forks. 

Much confusion on my part.  When dialing in on Racetech's site, it brings up all of the info and calculators for springs.  After downloading a VZ800 FSM, all I see is a dampener, no springs.  The question now is how in the hell do I get these forks to handle more weight?  Is it all done through fork oil volume?

Maybe source a second top or bottom triple clamp and cut the pinch rings off to fabricate a fender/brace type mount and cast a fender off a tire by applying you plaster mixture directly to a donor tire and sculpting it to form a mold from... you got the skills I seen it  :o :o

VZ800.  Advertised dry weight is 450lbs to 595lbs for the wing.  I'm trying to get the weight down on the wing, but I won't get it down that far.

well i dunno if you get that close on weight then your could do acupl home brews maybe raise the oil abit and ad some air OOOOOO scary  ::)
if the springs are plenty long and not in danger of coil binding or coming real close if you clip off a few coils then that is another route
its the 800 huh ? there has got to be other models of bikes that use avery near same phys. dimension spring
but yeah i woont sweat it untill its all built so you can set the sag and front rear balance to the actual wingweight
but the easy one to play with is air and oil level you dont have to put the fittings up top they can be between the triples hidden mo o less
am i seeing things or are the mawraider clamps got rake ? not that it really matters you gonna find out how she turns when you ride it
but ever pitchur i see of those turds it looks like they got raked clamps
i got about 20 sets of forks springs around here what is the diameter and length , wire size and spacing of them suzi springs ?

There is rake on the VZ800 in the steering tube.  The triple has no offset.  Apparently, guys get a 6° offset triple for more rake as a popular aftermarket option.

and i think the 19 is a good choice plenty of decent tars available
on another note that spacer you done for the bearing cup really should have good full contact purchase on the cups flat seat, it almost looks like it is just bumping the radius of the cup which is not good for holding it squarely, as thin as it is it is almost like a crush sleeve which is sometimes used between bearings

The forks are parallel to the GL steering tube.  There maaaaaay be a couple of degrees in there,  but the angle pulls the wheel towards the frame, not away.
If that makes any sense.

Wouldn't be hard to machine a thicker spacer.  I'm not seeing clearly how that setup won't keep it square.   The steering tube has two seats, essentially.  The lower seat is a 4mm step to the outer wall of the tube.  The upper seat another 4mm step.  The race was originally pressed against the lower seat.  My spacer is 2mm, so it's taking up half the depth to the first seat.  Everything is pressed in.  The spacer to the first seat, the race to the spacer.  I had 4mm to make up, but went 5mm on the spacer.

I did the exact same thing on the CB Eric.

What I did different is I used a second race and pressed it home then stacked another on top then cut notches in it... then ground it off until i just started sanding the bottom of the tube really only removing paint... then using the belt sander I trued it up removed the new race and re stacked it all with one shim washer. Using a long caliper it came out square and flops back and forth like it should, I still don't know how it will handle but at low speed it turns fine. can't wait to see for sure if I will need a whole new set of trees. I wish I took pictures of that process and on the KZ I am going to make you all sick with step by step shit haha! Of course Oh Darn will apply.

yepper bearing cups and races i have used them to turn lathe  a part ....just heat up red-orange and burry in some warm dirt or ashes fireplace  and next day that shi maka lip burning blue curl ,so nice
the other way is roll a  ring- welding rod, wire,or keystock it dint even need to be welded to ther as long as it fit good

Not sure what your meaning.  17mm x 47mm is bigger than the Honda 15mm x 42mm and the VZ 17mm x 40mm.  What about converting the 1" to a 3/4" Dyna bearing?

most sheen shops will have a lath to swing that tar removed ,swing is the word,nogo by chuck size big chuck not needed
a lath with 20" swing can fit in a 20" diam object ,the lathe would have 10" maybe a scoash more from turning centerline to the closest ways or rails
the bigger lathe i had was a gap bed, quite a few are, a section of the ways unbolts to create a a much larger swing cap near the chuck
i used to do wheels rims all the time common mod for us aspiring isdt racers was rtrim off .200" off one rim edge (onthe dia)front and back to easier fascilitate those 3 minute tire swaps

a lath with 20" swing can fit in a 20" diam object ,the lathe would have 10" maybe a scoash more from turning centerline to the closest ways or rails
the bigger lathe i had was a gap bed, quite a few are, a section of the ways unbolts to create a a much larger swing cap near the chuck
i used to do wheels rims all the time common mod for us aspiring isdt racers was rtrim off .200" off one rim edge (onthe dia)front and back to easier fascilitate those 3 minute tire swaps

I only need 1mm cut for 2mm overall.. I may drop by a shop and see what they say, nice wheel to let go to waste.

it can be done in a vertical mill but for either one the hourly rate is the issue
 the last shop i worked in there were 5 machinists, i was the only one who had that bag of tricks and could do those type of "motorcycle jobs " in quicktime
luckily the shop foreman who took in all work was well aware of this

Front wheel is setup. I'll get new spokes from Buchanan when I can afford them. I cleaned these up for now.  Next item is to figure out a proper 300mm rotor. Rumor has it a certain Ducati bolts up.  Not sure which one yet.

If your still looking for a petcock plan, you could plug the existing ports with brass and cut them flush, then I have used a good sharp punch and poked hols in both sides as low as possible then open them just until a chunk of steel tube fits tight... the punch roles the metal inward and gives a nice weld grove with good meat to weld to. You could even flair it for a fitting or thread it with a die, but then I just run both into a Y fitting then into a remote Petcock.

I completely cut out the bottom of the tank.  It was so fucked, I said fuck it.  I'll make a whole new bottom that wraps the frame with strategically placed petcock locations, or possibly one in the center rear.  I'm also looking at boat fuel cells or having a aluminum one made to fit.  Then the tank becomes a tank cover that gets welded to the seat to form a unibody.  8)

I just got in a pair of 95/96 YZF600R discs for the front wheel. Two measurements on these hubs are direct fit: the 6 X 80mm bolt pattern and the 300mm OD.  What I need to fix: YZF has a shallower offset and a thinner mounting plate. YZF has a 64mm ID vs 60mm on the GL.

I'm waiting on shipment of a pair of 99 - 02 SV650 Tokico calipers to determine necessary offset. Most likely scenario, I have a pair of spacers of certain thickness machined with a 2mm X 5mm inner shoulder.

I don't think those are the right year.  They have to specifically be 95/96 for 300mm OD and 6 x 80mm bolt pattern.  90 - 94/5 have a 6 x 80 bolt pattern, but a 298mm OD.  The earlier discs are a popular XS swap, iirc.

99 - 02 SV650 calipers.  I mocked it up to get a measurement. I'll get 2 spacers machined at 60mm ID X 100mm OD X 14.75mm thick. The YZF calipers have a 64mm ID, so they'll need a 2mm X 5mm flange.

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160201/8bdb6a743ff217b890401603106765d4.jpg)

Something like this, but with a 6 x 80mm bolt pattern drilled through.

When all was said and done, I had 5mm to make up to space the hub on one side. A hole saw, scribe and burr bit later, I at least have a rig to move around. Two proper spacers will get machined up when I'm ready to move the front end over to the '76.
