Dug these out of the shed today. Got them a while back. Pretty decent peaked fender set. Not perfect but will work for me. Back one fits pretty good but front will need a little encouragement to fit on the springer.




This thing may also find it's way on the bike somewhere. Hand carved mahogany skull I picked up in Nassau, Bahamas earlier this year. After this cold snap, I wish I was back there now!

That's what I thought when I saw it. Just had to have it! My wife thought I was crazy until she figured out it would end up on a bike. Probably happy it wasn't intended for the coffee table or dining table as a centerpiece.:D:D

I had fellow member "barnbikes" make me a couple of custom sprockets. Now to decide which one to use, I like them both. I kind of gave him an idea what I wanted, he did the artwork & cut them out with a laser. I couldn't be happier, he does awesome work! This decision will be a hard one for me.





I will also have to decide whether I am going with a regular or skiptooth drive train. If I go with a skippy, I will have some grinding to do to remove every other tooth.

How much does he charge for his sprockets? I want one that's big! I'm talking like 70-75 tooth or more big but biggest I've seen are exercise bikes at 65.

Prices are good, not 100% on what he will actually charge you as my deal was a little different with the post to Aust and being a bit of a trial run, best bet is just to ask him... Link: http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/what-is-your-favorite-sprocket.76906/

By the way, he did two 70 tooth sweethearts for me (next to a 42 tooth bmx sprocket)...

Thanks Skip! That's the one I am leaning toward.

rubsterob: I can't quote you any prices, but I can tell you it was VERY reasonable & VERY well made. He shipped on Monday from MN & I received it in KS on Thursday! Send him a PM with your ideas & he will give you a price. Thanks for lookin guys!

I really dig the sprockets, but when I first saw the 2nd one, it looked like a snaggle toothed Minion. :crazy:

Contact RRB member "barnbikes". You should be able to look him up on this site. He is a great guy to deal with!
