Keep a diary of your latest build here.
That fender is sweet, looks like the heat shield from a machine gun. That would make a sick military theme bike.
It doesn't matter what I paid for it, it matters what it's WORTH. I never buy anything I will regret KEEPING.
Yep, I was right, fender does look great! and yep, It does look like a Browning machine gun heat cover, I like it!!
Wont keep your butt dry, but sure looks killer!
Wanna see my rides? :
Wow! I'm really digin' the fender! Wonder if you could just scrub it with a Scotchbrite pad to give it a stainless look?
PS, if I steal your idea to put the holes in my fender, I'll give you the credit, okay?
My Intro <((><
Jesucristo es mi Señor y Salvador!
I added some black stripes to the hubs, and found some vinyl for the old Troxel seat. I'm heading North for the Deer season opener tomorrow morning, so I'll get back to the bike next weekend. Fireproof, go ahead and punch some holes brother! Tom
Thanks guys I finally got the tires mounted on the rims, and got the speedo painted to match the headlight. Here is a trick that I use to mount tires on freshly painted rims. I use freezer waxed paper to protect the paint. I put the waxed side against the rim, and work the tire over it.
I'm really glad I chose this Green, although the engine paint was hard to work with. I think the sparkle vinyl is going to look good on the old Troxel. Tom
I'm hoping to get the bike finished this weekend. I found a tail light and painted it up, and I want to put LED's into it. I recovered the seat tonight. This vinyl is hard to work with, and I didn't do to good of a job with the padding so I'm going to re-do it again but the vinyl looks cool. Here are a couple of pictures. Tom
Thanks Eric, I got the seat in a box of Misc. parts a couple weeks ago. Give me a call this afternoon, and bring that fender with you.
Starting to come together
I finished recovering the seat today. I added a lot more padding, and let the adhesive get tacky overnight.
I also finished adding the LED's to the headlight. Here are some pictures of today's progress.
