    Time to sculpt the tank a bit. I think I will keep is simple by knocking down some edges and giving it a taper to the back.

    I had just enough of my foam material to build some size to the tank, which will allow for some design work. The open cell foam binds well with spray glue and the body filler I use. Just carve away what I don’t want. I may leave a pocket for a thunderbolt design. I have no plan when I make a...

    Nice work! really like your truing stand. I learned to lace a wheel a few build off’s back and it was very satisfying to learn. I’ve only successfully trued one of my wheel builds, and I found that can be tough. I chose to lace the wheels and have a LBS true them for me. 💪🏻

    Thank you much! Good to be this far this early👍🏼 Thank you! And I agree! The skirts and chain guard were a nice last minute find. I’ve always wanted a set and they just happen to fit well. ✌🏻

    Thunderbolt is another step closer to becoming a rider. A fresh chain and front wheel are on the way. The inner tubes showed up, so I stuffed them in the rugged 26”x2,35” tires and I am happy with the results. I also set the chain guard and skirt set on and I am really liking the look. The skirt...

    I decided to take some of the chrome parts from my beehive part lot, and transfer them to the all black fork I am running. When I took photos of my progress, the fork got lost in the big picture and didn’t show off its style. The chrome is still crusty rusty and has an equal patina to the fork...

    That tank and fork is a nice match in my opinion. You have great parts to choose from!

    That’s a great tip! Thank you @kingfish254 It will take some work to get the chain guard to fit, while the skirts do fit well. I’m not quite sure if they fit my vision just yet but fun to play around with.

    Today I got the tank roughly cut out of the 2x4. I think I may have just enough sculpture block to make the tank from. I still have to trim up the buck to slide through the tank housing, then I can add the foam and start sculpting something. I am going to play with the idea of adding pipes for a...
