    Fiberglass Cafe Seat

    I don't think I'd destroy it, and I doubt I'd even say a word about it, but in the event someone in the future told me I was full of shit, I'd show them the proof. it wouldn't change anything, for some reason you catch a lot of shit for owning a business and *gasp* making a living selling...

    Fiberglass Cafe Seat

    seeing it resold doesn't bother me, just feel like I was definitely justified getting panties bunched at the time of the copies being made

    Fiberglass Cafe Seat

    similarity as in a direct copy off a part the dude bought from me, but frankly I don't care anymore, I make them cheaper than that garage hack could now anyway and mine are trimmed, and I don't spew styrene vapor and chopped strand into my neighbors yard in order to make a quick buck flame on

    Custom oil tank

    I'm not sure about the check valve, do you have an overflow line running to the crankcase? If not, you really should, and if you do, then you won't need a check valve. If you have a check valve and no line running to the crankcase, here's what'll happen. 1: the check valve is set to allow...

    Recommend a Fiberglass kit...

    I'd even avoid those stores, I went to a West Marine once to pick up gelcoat pigment (I buy it in the quart for about $15) they charged me $5 for a 1oz tube... that's a pretty standard markup in that business. If you need lam. resin I find the kind sold by UScomposites or fiberglasssite are...

    made some tanks this week

    yup... it's the plight of the business, customers want a non-generic tank that bolts on to their individual bike, but usually order all at the same time and need it asap :) if I could figure out a way to have people order like, a tank every couple weeks all through the year instead of all...

    Tried to make some new friends at caferacer.net, what a joke!

    the stock cb750 arm is about a foot long, it goes under the footpeg so the pivot is actually behind the heel. also, yes, those race bike rear drums may look stock on the outside but the internals are usually modified, such as the cam, I suppose an "easy" way to correct for some of the lack of...

    that's actually a really bad example, not to slam you (I'm not), but look at the lever ratio, it's tiny, you've got a 5" foot peg, and 2" lever arm, going to the brake arm, you've got force multiplication of maybe 2-3 when it should be 12-20

    I do, that's why my rear brake setups use a pivot close to the swingarm pivot :)

    Tried to make some new friends at caferacer.net, what a joke!

    pretty much any rearset adapted drum brake I've seen completely neglects to consider the original lever ratio of the stock bike, and to make things easier, usually winds up reducing the lever ratio by at least half, usually it's like 4 or 5 times

    Tried to make some new friends at caferacer.net, what a joke!

    it needs to be straight too, the bend acts like a spring so when the shoes make contact with the drum, the bar starts to bend, and it'll never put much pressure on the drum, with that setup, my guess is he could be on the brake as hard as he could and the bike would slow down about as fast as...
