Thanks man!Absolutely love this.
Hold out your hand and I'll show you.What's that saying? Shit in one hand, hope in the other?
Fantastic advice. Did this on the motor mount plates and the finish was much nicer. (The lighting in the closeup of the outside cut look worse than it is. )I struggled to get a finish like this with quarter round end mills on a cnc machine when I was doing tool and die work. I was hesitant to climb with it, but after roughing most of it off conventionally, it wasn't a big deal. All of the bare aluminum (less the tank and fender) will eventually get anodized, either silver or clear, haven't decided which yet.Man this thing is looking rad. I also used that router technique for some rearsets i made recently! A machinst buddy showed me that technique and his tip to get a real smooth chatter free finish is to do the finish pass at like .005"- .010" depth of cut and climb cut, with a smear of cutting wax the tool finish is excellent.
Oh man that's still awesome of you to think its worthy. I may run up there this year just to check things out! Id not have been finished in time for this years anyways, unless they'd accept an un finished, non running roller lolVery tidy! Missed the Fuel Cleveland deadline this year's show, but I think you will get an invite next year.
Thanks John! We will have to get a DTT bobber ride together sometime soon. I know you, @irk miller and @Kanticoy will all have them, and hopefully before long @Deviant1 will have a stupid tw200 hardtail as well lolShe’s a hell of a looker Levi. I’m psyched to see it finished.
