Well Sunshine, I gave the old stick welder I had back to its original owner. I've been trying to score a new one but I just can't swing it right now.... 23 days to go, we'll see what I can do with no cash, no welder and no spare parts to speak of...

I had originally thought about bobbing this fender but I like the braces. There was so much paint on it all so after chem strip I still had to sand them. I also cut the rivets off and after repaint, reattached them with brass acorn nuts.




I raised the seat up to riding position. I wonder how much that green wall messes with my camera's color :eek: shift? o_O Those fender braces are flat black, the frame and fender are flat olive....

Lookin good Carl.
Any thoughts on a front fender? Feels like something is missing on the front end...Mmmmm Maybe a light,a massive one?
I've got a fender but its pretty raggedy...
But I do have a big light in the works...;)
Got some parts today, too bad I ordered them wrong. Anybody need an 1 1/8" headset? I don't... stems totally wrong too. Oh well, parts stash... Necessity forced me to figure out how to make what I have work, so I'm good, but it was frustrating looking at the headset and realizing it wasn't going to work. Took the front end apart and painted the forks olive. Mounted a nice little reflector on the rear fender. So I'm getting there...

Worked on the front end today.... we'll see if the fender will work out, may have my light mount fabbed too, just need a couple fender washers. Had to touch up the paint on the forks after assembly. Net is down here, burnin' data on my notso smart phone. Pics when I can...

I'm sure you have a hidden idea up your sleeve on the light.
Maybe something that looks like a radar screen.;)
Haha, I didn't... recycled the light from the Difference Engine with a mount that holds the fender too. But now you got me thinking about some masking... The thread about the socketed LEDs has me fixing to rebuild the light anyway. It's an old Deitz that I cut the back out of the glass bulb for LEDs, pretty slick but those new bulbs are variable power supply and BRIGHT.

I've been taking pics to doc this light... when my wifi goes back up I can upload them w/ my laptop... (since I haven't figured out how to w/ my phone) but I believe I have solved my light dilemma (I can't believe I broke that bulb) I cut a 5.5" disk out of aluminum, cut two 2.25" holes for the lights reflectors and made a lense from clear styrene that has a square pattern stamped into it. Should be able to get the batteries inside the deitz bucket too. Pics soon hopefully...
