Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
Thanks Clancy, I think i'm slowly sneaking up on the look i'm after. Aren't you going to build something for this one ?? I will eventually build a military themed bike, and I blame that soley on your "mission accomplished" ride. I already have 1 ammo box on stand-by.Those of you new to the site, take a little time to check out cman's builds, time well spent imho.
Been doing a lot of the "finiky" work, making all the bits fit together properly, frame is now in primer. I decided to paint the rims using the drinking straw method (1st try)
Seeing as they were aluminum they had to be shot with special primer which was yellow. Sort of helped amplify the international tractor red paint color.
The straw trick does work, but it is time consuming. I dont know if tearing the rim down and rebuilding wouldnt be quicker, but I dont yet have that skill, so I went this way.
That deadline is coming up pretty fast!
July 32rd, bike is coming together, but not without its problems. Paint is NOT co-operating, forcing me to bake parts in the oven in order to meet the deadline
A few more teasr pics;
Need some sunny weather to get some good pics;
I'll take that sunny weather anytime! Feels like we've been stuck in spring all summer long. corn crops are nearly 2 weeks behind, and trying to shoot and cure paint in this humidity near impossible.
Also didnt help that while trying to tighten the shifter screw , the screwdriver slipped, leaving a nice star shaped hole in my left hand.
lol It's all good though, 1 more piece to finish fabbing, a couple more wires to run, and it's done.
