Friday night update. Worked late tonight to get the fender and stays fabbed and mounted. I welded tabs on the seat stays and threaded the round stock. Now I can adjust the fender to center over the tire and increase or decrease the distance to the tire. Worked out great. I'll hang the fork in the morning and find some pedals. Might be a rider for Cyclefest on Sunday.
alright got to see her close up and wow is all i can say. this bike is simply amazing it really looks like an old BSA or say triumph of the era. mr ray you have out done yourself with this one, if there was ever a bike that followed the creed of the rat or at least what i think of as a rat this is it.
Finally recovered from Cyclefest 2011. It's been three days work, rest and honeydo. Got back on the Mash Banger tonight. Burned the paint off the tank halfs and fabbed up a pair of tank guards. Keep watching for the new additions. Might be done by Friday. Didn't find the time to snap any photos of the three Build Off Bikes that showed up. Gold Street Customs and Karfers bikes are awesome live in color. Very impressive both of you.
Here's a couple of teaser shots as she sits tonight. Enjoy!
Here's some pics of the tank halfs with the paint gently burned off with my blue wrench. A shot of the guards alone and the tank with guards in place. More work tonight, who knows what I'll come up with.
Thanks to all again for your kind comments and support. Got the guards mounted to the tank. Next stop to spruce up the fender stays. Keep watching everybody cause it's gettin down to the wire. This weekend Mashie will be going to visit one of our local RRB members for a big surprise. I wonder what's up with that?
Need to be ready for Behind Bars Sunny Side Up weekend in San Jose. Then the following Monday is the deadline baby.
WOW Kuttnhack, you are really goin' to town with this build! Taillight is very cool. Diggin' the fender struts. Forks are a trip. Glad to see you have something to cover up those holes in the tank . . . the guards are great! Keep up the fantastic work! 8)
