Bingo! This bike is getting exported to a country that requires a front "mud guard". So yeah.

Thanks Rob! Necessity is the mother of invention.

Small update...

Since this is my fist real sissy bar, I ended up tweaking how it was bent and mounted to make it appear more symmetrical where it meets the fender, pics will be posted when I get the bike back outside.

The client wanted pocketed mounts on the gas tank, which I agreed would be better than just tabs at the front and back of the tank. So here is the process I used to be sure the pockets were symmetrical, and lined up true across the tunnel.

The first step was to make one long pocket...




I forgot to get a few pictures: welding the blind threaded bungs to the pocket, cutting/trimming the gas tank for the one big pocket, marking the tank lines on the big pocket and cutting it into two small pockets, but I swear I did it

Here are the new pockets welded to the bottom of the gas tank.


This is pic of the mount bar on the tank, but not welded to the frame. I made the mount from the backbone to this bar already, Hopefully that will get welded on by the end of this weekend. The rear tab will get a counter bored bung and a corresponding threaded bung in the backbone.


I also got the Biltwell saddle hinge welded to the backbone.

Great pocket trick!

The front braket and brake stay are sweet too

Thanks Lester!

Small update...

I duplicated the heim strut and brake bracket bushings in stainless for the matching bracket Fabricator Kevin is making to support the right side of the front fender


The gas tank is finally in its final resting place.


To eliminate paint "squish" on the tail of the tank where it bolts to the backbone, I went with a counterbored bung. This way any squish is recessed and hidden. I accounted for a leather washer between the tank bung and the backbone threaded bung so any tank movement won't fatigue the rear tank tab.


The client wants to use Chopper shox on the saddle, but I have read SO many complaints about them, AND he is out of business. Is there a good coil-over/shock saddle combo out there that has a proven track record? Next will be a battery box, pillion pad, and passenger pegs. Here is a pic of how things are filling in...

Are you going to mold it any, or let those nice welds show?

So I guess he decided to go with that tank... I know it sounds weird but it does fit that frame...

My body guy will mold the welds on the tank nice and tight. I like nice welds as much as the next guy, but most of my clients are after a more finished, streamlined look. The welds on the frame won't get molded, they will just get powder coated.

That tank fits the frame like a glove! It appears to be well made and symmetrical too. Thanks again for that!

After searching high and low, I couldn't find any passenger pegs that looked right, were the right size, or were made well enough to fill the bill. So I turned these last night to closely match the Joker Machine ones up front.

This bike is really coming together nicely. I am not a big fan of coffin/prism tanks but this one is perfect for this build. Nice work. Have you decided on a color yet?

Same. I also am not a fan of angular things, but it seems to work on this long thing. The client wants the same blues as "Gonzo". As for the design, he has given me carte blanche. My painter will love that!

Ha! Word to the mothership! This will be the first long bike I've ridden with proper rake/trail, so I'm pumped to ride it too.

I do love some sharpie! And that banana is actually a T-handle allen driver I did try eating it, but ended up chipping a tooth.

Well, get out to the shed and get to work! Inquiring minds want to see what you are up to.

You wont want to admit it at first. That is perfectly normal, you'll go through denial and tell everyone "it was ok". Then it will slowly, at first, grow. The seed was planted....

You will find yourself smiling and chuckling over thoughts of how fun it was. All the other bikes will sorta lack something. That will be sad at first. It will be ok. The solition is more long bike.... just like more cowbell.

Sorry

I had a little time to get this beast outside (JAWS ). Then I got the license plate and tail lights on the sissy. The reason for the extra space on either side of the license plate is that the base is sized for the plates of the country to which the bike is going. I will trim this one for our US plates so it doesn't look wonky during test miles and the photo session, and make another base for the client to drill for his plate once he gets his bike.

The pillion pad is just sitting there, as I have yet to figure out exactly how that is going to work out. We had discussed using threaded bungs, so a small luggage rack, in the style of vintage triumph tank rack, could go in place of the pillion when needed. opinions?

There is nothing I don't like about this bike, all the details and fab work is super slick. 10/10 would ride the shit out of.

I have to agree. Superb Dan, absolutely a dream. The proportions are perfect. I can almost hear it.

Make me want to go ride my bike.... even if its raining.


Thanks for the pictures and inspiration.
