Start your RRB Build Off diaries here!
The Freaky ***** are getting hungry for an update!!!!!!
I'm so far behind it's not even funny!! I'm not throwing in the towel just yet though!!! If I can get it assembled tomorrow and button up a few things I should get her done!! Believe it or not I have been working on it quit a bit, sadly the finished product probably won't show my effort! Haha! I hope to post up some pics tomorrow!!!
Alright, another Zombie waking up from the dead!!!
Gitchazz Buildin Cuz Times a Wastin!!!!!!!
Whew......man, well finally some pics of things! Since Kingfish seems to be the forum "cheer captain" of sorts, these are mostly for him!! Sorry no crazy ***** to post.
Well, I started over, I wanted to clean up the frame a little. The drop outs were cracked, the down tube was broken off at the bottom.....just for safety sakes I decided it need some fix'n!!
So I don't know how to weld, well I am broke but I managed to scrape up some funds and bought myself a "Eastwood 135". Seems to have some decent reviews and most importantly it was affordable.
Yes, these are the worst welds in the entire world!!!!!!
But I found out I am not to shabby at grinding!!
a little bondo a little primer ..............not to bad
I thought I would make my own seat.....I cut up two banana seats to make one, well I save everyone the horror of that welding process!!!!!! and get to the half way finished seat that I still don't know if I am going to use.
As of a couple days ago this was sort of the direction I was heading......
While at O'reillys auto parts, I spied some stainless steel spray paint.
Need to decide on handle bars still..........and obviously button up the rest of the odds and ends, but I am confident that I will at least have it done by this friday!!!!
Well.........as of today I guess I am heading in another direction..........After some sanding, wet sanding, re-spraying, sanding and some more wet sanding I cleared everything and did some more wet sanding. Actually doesn't look to bad in person!
as of today this is where I am at. I kept the original paint on the tank and chain guard also the rear fender. I think it looks pretty good with the silver!
Run Forest Run!!!
Well, I suppose I am done........... I wasted so much time that I really didn't get to try and do some other things to it. I like it how it turned out, but it's not terribly comfortable to ride!
I suppose it's a little better than last years, but..........
I had to fashion up a couple things, I used a miners helmet light and hid it in the tank
I took an old wrench and fashioned a bracket out of it for my little devil guy.
So other wise I decided to run the larger wheel in the front, and gave it a horrible rattle can black paint job.......I ran out of paint 3/4 of the way through. I decided not to put any more money in it!!
The most expensive thing was the ornament. Which someday I hope to use on my VW.
But here she is.......... I just need to take some nice pics tomorrow and post it in the finished section.
The Dakota Devil Booger turned out great!!!!
