Here is a mock-up, the first shown here is with a 21" front wheel and the one below with a 19".
I made all components to fit/match each other, such as the handle bars being parallel to the gas tank. Both tanks are designed according to each-other and of course of the angles/curves of the frame.
You can see the oil tank brackets/mount plates look stock, I made them from scratch but they're complimentary to the gearbox mounts style. There are many more design features on the bike, I will post them as the build goes on..

looks great,
i like the 19" best and one thing i would tweak is the carb,i would angle it up a little as it's looks like it hangs backwards,but great progress,love the front end

thanks a lot knuckleworks, actually there are two carbs and they are parallel to the ground,, i think because they are angled outwards, it looks like that from the side..

btw they are loose, just remembered..

have sworn not to make anything on that until i get my new tig welder

That's looking great. Love the struts and the gas tank. Doesn't look like anything else I've seen. Stellar work.

I like the 21 myself.

You do incredible work but I have to say that I'm not feeling that oil tank. Seems like an afterthought or something you had laying around that you threw in there. I'm not trying to be a dick...I just sound like one.

thanks guys, .. Hey kickstarts, the oil tank is actually the continuation of the gas tanks form. I know, from the side the 3dimension is not clear but its pretty narrow and tappers up/down. the sides on the top front are also parallel to the velocity stacks. Thanks for your input..

Bike looks stellar dude... couldn't help but see the harbor freight tubing roller.. I picked one up over the weekend to roll the pipes on my bike. I just made a 2.5' diameter loop with 1-1/2" steel tubing .065 wall... I had some binding on the pipe on either side from the dies.. I got pretty rough at one point.. did you get any of that? any suggestions or tips?
Thanks,
Mike

Flippin awesome! Are you going to leave this one raw? The metal work looks way too good to cover up.
Cheers, Dan.

I'm with Dan....the raw metal give it a true artist dimension....covering all that craftsmanship with filler, primer and paint would be a crime!

Hey, my project has been on hold for the last year while going to school. Just finished up with school and went back to work and have funding again now this update shows up in my email...GREAT INSPIRATION to get back on my project and finish it!

Looks great always enjoy seeing what you are up too on your projects. I vote keen it raw and love the paper pipes -the blue tape but after everything else you did on this I am guessing they were pretty easy!

Alp, I really enjoy seeing your craftsmanship in this thread.
21 looks meaner but the 19 fits in well, too. will it be a shouldered rim on the back and front? The oil tank is a very cool design but to me it looks cramped up nest to the gearbox, esp towards the bottom. I photoshopped it with the distance split, you know what they say about opinions, ha ha.

I think you should go for the 21" up front! It's one hell of a nice bike, btw.

The hf roller bender is good for some applications but the pipes you want can not be done without having flats. i like it because i use it for smaller tubes and round stock. You would probably need a rotary draw type bender with a mandrel to make flawless pipes..

Cheers, Dan.
My client already has a color scheme, it will be dark blue with some off-white/cream color contrasting lines..

Yeah, the 21" looks sexy but the 19" looks/fits so well, it also has the vintage '40-'50's stock style,we'll see what happens. Yes both rims will be shouldered.

I think you're right about the oil tank's position, your ps looks great.. I don't want to put it right in the middle, but it does need to go back especially on the bottom like you said.. by the way the fender will move forward a bit too. Seems like I may have to make a new oil tank because if I move it back the top front of the tank wont be parallel to the seat post, anyway there is still lots of to figure out..

I got these back from Joe "The Polishing King" from Garden Grove, CA.. Very impressed!! Cant wait to put the motor together, but first I need to send the crankshaft for dynamic balancing.
