Thanks guys! here's some more pics from today, I know its getting way too late to be still mocking up and fabricating parts but this NEEDED to be included. I had this Idea stuck in my head that the fork needed a shroud to steamline the bike. I was up till 4 am last night making this:


I got a few hours of sleep and when woke up I realized I hated it and I had just wasted a lot of precious time. I went back to the drawing board and about 12 hours later I have this!



The main reason I need this was to provide a slick way to hold these lights I scored off ebay at great expense specifically for this application. I am so glad I didn't just punt on the whole shroud idea now!

Don't stop those creative ideas coming, love the shroud and lights. I am getting a real made it, it works and making it too pretty would be a distraction vibe from this.
After all it is on rat rod bikes, and a real WW2 vet I knew who did some racing after coming home talked about just using what worked they could lay their hands on - which was not a lot over here. This bike would give him goosebumps I am sure.

Very cool shroud! :thumbsup:
Are you going to get this thing done by the deadline?

Luke.


Done? That's a relative term, I've already reduced my efforts to the side that I will be shooting it from. But yes I will be hurling some form of this bike across the finish line before time expires ( unless I expire first).

Wicked shroud. Keep it coming, but make sure to cross the finish line.
