    Thanks guys. :D

    Luke, I am planning on adding more welds to a lot of the welded areas, especially the high stress points. Might even add in some gussets in some places before tidying up and prepping for paint. :roll:

    Great job on the bike, glad to see you got to use the spotlight in it's entirety. I've used a couple on different builds and always took the handles off because I couldn't figure out how to mount the whole thing. Cool and unique mounting bracket, it fits the rest of the build.

    Thanks junknutz. Yeah, I am pleased at how it worked out in general. I'm not that happy with the actual gear stick though. It's a bit long at the moment and touches my thigh a bit, so I will either just shorten it or make another one :roll:

    Thanks Missing Link. I was determined to use the whole thing. I have been saving it and the other one I have to put on a suitable car... but I realised that I might not have another cool car any time soon, so I decided to use this one on this bike. Besides, if a cool rod or custom happens along sometime in the future, I can always take it off the bike :wink:

    Another small update...

    Found a clip to hold up the center stand...
    [​IMG]

    Cut it in half and lined it up...
    [​IMG]

    Then welded it on and did the same on the other side...
    [​IMG]

    Welded the tail light mount on...
    [​IMG]

    Did a mount for the rear caliper brake. Lined it up...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Prepared a brake lever...
    [​IMG]

    Set up the rear brake...
    [​IMG]

    Welded some feet on the stand...
    [​IMG]

    I have since broken the bike down and gone over the frame adding weld to the important areas.

    Next I'll be trying to tidy them up before painting. :D

    You've been hard at work on the details.
    I look forward to seeing this baby painted

    A quick update...

    I have made the mounting brackets (still need trimming) for the 1946 Ford hood ornament to go on the handlebar...

    [​IMG]

    Here is what it looks like...

    Glad you all like the hood ornament... had to get something on there that has an 8 on it :p

    Another update...

    I forgot to take in progress shots, but here are a couple of shots showing the fake patina on the frame, which I am not that happy with but it will do...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    These are the parts for "tidying up" my gear lever, a bit of old inner tube and a plastic end plug...
    [​IMG]

    The inner tube piece goes over the metal slotted bit to cover it and then the end cap is pushed in to hold it. It will be pushed in properly when finished...
    [​IMG]

    Cut out a metal seat pan and welded on some mounting studs...
    [​IMG]

    Doesn't look too bad. It will hopefully have some foam attached and some sort of material over it, but have not decided what yet...
    [​IMG]

    I also painted the "Rattled" name on the bottom frame rails. These are the steps...

    Printed out a template and taped it to the area that I had masked off, then cut it out using a sharp hobby knife...
    [​IMG]

    This is the resulting mask...
    [​IMG]

    Here is the resulting name without a shadow line...
    [​IMG]

    And here it is with the shadow outline...
    [​IMG]

    The finished name after weathering it back with sandpaper. Left side...
    [​IMG]

    And right side...
    [​IMG]

    Time to start reassembly... 8)
