And i will have to make my self a third burst panel and pop of valve. to make the plumbing complete

But i have all i need for the new handelbar. That feels like it's way more fun so that have priority.

Inspired by at not too unfamiliar pic...



I also ordered some meathookgrips but i don't know if im gonna use them. They where so cheap i couldn't resist.




Ahh..! good to know. If this very unlikely chain of events took place i would know that it would all work out in the end.



Glad that you like it. can't get enough of that!

Can you see the pics now?

I had an unevenness in the outer radius of the velocitystack, which i discussed with my sheetmetal guy at work. He recomended tapping it out with an ballhammer against a piece of metal with the right radius.
But man was that some delicate tapping! 1mm of alu, and not leaving bigger dents than 0.2mm.
To get the picture: Tapp a fly hard enough in the head to piss him of, but not hard enough to kill him, 2000times!
Well, He would have died about 30 times, beacause it was 30 dents that took longer time to smooth out than the evening was long..

I know!!

See if i at least can get my lazy ass down to the garage and take some pics of the last undocumented update.
Wife is 8½months pregnant, so time for bike building is pushed aside.
Instead i have to finish a zillion other projekts around the house

But i bought an ancient ac/dc tig welder from work for 20$ It works! If had that before, my manifold would have been done in no time..

Here are some pics.
It gives a rough feel for the new bar.
it isn't finished yet. I have only shortened one of the grips, etc etc.
Had some trouble with the threads in the end of the bar and with the threaded stop plug.
When a no name manufacturer of aftermarket plug makes a plug for a no name aftermarket handlebar from an other manufacturer there just have to be trouble.
especially then you can't tap the damn thing because of the choosen 57/64"-24tpi thread.
Luckally i make my own plugs that fits in my lathe..

Looks good.. Love the bars. Where are you gonna put the controls? Mids or rears?

Honestly I don't know why you are in the garage when your poor wife is pregnant. Insensitive prick....

Thanks, I needed this.

I love this bike.

Rear would be hardcore but mid would be easier to ride with. so i think i go for mid.
I was just down for a minute, for the first time in weeks, to snap those pics.
When i got back wify moned about her tummy. An undistinctiv unpleasant feel. I posted the pics. 8 intense hours later i held my son for the first time.
An humbeling experience
Now i have someone to teach all my knowings of the metal trade, whether he wants it or not
But i can't have my shop in order anymore or something dear to me, it will be scratched and dented.
o Well..

This is one of those useless questions with out a pic. but here i go anyway.
An old schreader carb was given to me yesterday by ex boss/fan of mine. It was made out of cast copper and had an linkert looking flange to the manifold the manifold was t-shaped with really small bores. I was told that The back of the carb had an backvalve function. The small parts of the valve function were in a small bag beside.

Guesses?
It doesn't even has to be an motorcyclecarb but some how i think so.

Looks like a early indian ( or Harley) carb. The thing on the bottom is a heater, draws warm air from between the cylinders. Manifold looks JD ish. They drop down, not a straight T, to miss the tanks.
