    I Like This - Especially the Seat

    It wouldn’t be as hard as it looks. You could buy a cafe seat from Amazon, work up all of how to adapt it, then make a plug and build it yourself. It would take patience, but it could be done.

    I Like This - Especially the Seat

    I would definitely say custom as a motorcycle seat is considerably wider. It would be much easier to make a new piece than try to rework an existing piece. They did a superb job.

    Who here has pin striped?

    I Like This - Especially the Seat

    I would say it’s a custom unit. It’s too small to have come from a motorcycle, unless it was reworked. My immediate guess is that someone is a composite bodyworks builder. I could post an “all you have to do is...” sentence, but that would absolutely SPOIL the beauty contained in this photo.

    Rant: why I have trouble supporting the LBS

    That is how some shoppes operate. When I was a wrench in the shoppe, essentially I NEVER saw a customer UNLESS I was explaining the work that I had to do or I was specifically being asked about a part for a special situation, as I tended to be that guy. I set up a bike with a two to one cable...

    30s Western?

    When I was a bit younger and didn’t show my age, I used to love to catch bullshitters! It was great fun. Now my age kinda shows and I can’t look quite as gullible LOL

    30s Western?

    I have noticed people try to add twenty more years to the age hoping to get more money. It’s kinda sad.

    Hookworms don’t have white walls, so I will be using some of this:

    Had to leave off the Basset Seat guts :(

    Fork is installed. The new one BELONGS and actually makes the stance better due to the longer legs. Disc brake front wheel is finished (not picked up). Hopefully my seat guts arrive today or tomorrow. A lot of little milestones today!!!

    Motorised bike fever

    Yep- really tempted to sell my soul to the dark side on this OCC build. I have a perfect track stand from my Ducati days since I am without a kick stand. I will likely start with a left-side drive and end up with a jack shaft bike. I will likely use a drill to start my bike. Or not. Who knows...

    Anybody got one of the new Orange Krates or coal krates? I have a question

    Dude- I get it! Maybe someone here will buy a Krate and give you a serial number. If I get a Krate, I will get you a serial number.

    Anybody got one of the new Orange Krates or coal krates? I have a question

    There are people selling that drum brake hub. The question is how many spokes are they putting in those front rims? As long as they are in the same multiples to half them (e.g. 16 spokes opposed to 32 spokes or 18 versus 36 spokes), 9/10 mechanics could build that wheel; a few can figure out how...

    Want your saddle waterproof? Go to a sports shoppe, grab a little Sno Seal and go to town. It darkens the leather a bit, but gives such a rich and supple look and if you’re caught in a rain storm, the saddle won’t care much. No weird ingredients, just beeswax and a few other emollients.
