Re: Sidecar build pics: Metal fab

The purpose is to tie the top mount to the bottom. Although it "may" not be necessary, I think it certainly will avoid too much flex/stress on the top strut arm mount. I drive agressive and fly the...

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

I did not start a new thread yet. I like to wait until I get in full swing since I hate when people start a new thread and then you never hear anything else about it. Also, people highjack your...

Re: 500 triumph bobber project pics

I re-sanded the tank, fender and oilt tank and cleaned it with thinner to get it ready for the "vintage" finish. I tried to use stain for the looked I wanted, but it did really work out. I mixed some...

Re: 500 triumph bobber project pics

I had to drill out the old thread bung for the oil tank so I could weld in the new vented cap from Lowbrow. I ended up brazing it in to flow it out around the edge. I shaped it up a bit with a die...

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

I just found another of the old BMWs last weekend. It already has an R90S motor in it and they were 67 HP back in 1974. I got the original motor/trans also. I took the heads in to fix a valve seat...

500 triumph bobber project pics

I tried to decide on a paint idea, but decided the metal looked best. I sanded the tank and fender down and will put a light coat of gel stain (for wood) to seal it and give it an antique look. I...

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

The bike has been done for a couple weeks and I have been going on short trips to get all the bugs out. Today was nice out and I went on a long ride with no issues...I guess that means the build is...

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

The wheels cleaned up great even though I put them together five years ago. The wiring is a hodge podge if Kawasaki coils, VW parts and a few trips to NAPA. I will tuck it all in nice.

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

All the hard work is over and now is the detail work like wiring and small touches. I couldn't wait to use this cloth covered wire on the places that wiring showed like here on the brake light...

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

Setting in the motor is really a TIGHT squeeze...remember this is a 1976 engine and had to have modifications to the bike to take the motor. Even with all the rags and care there was still one...

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

"Why old bikes are cool"... Things like the two-three days it takes to rebuild a pair of shocks reminds me why old bikes are cool. If they were easy to build, everyone would have one.
First I had...

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

I used tape to make a line where I wanted to trim the metal to. Then it was just a lot of shaving a little, checking and taking a little more until it all fit tight when the “pie” shape closed...

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

These fenders were just some of the very worst available and need a lot of work. The were packed full of filler and the rear hinge area was a disaster. I couldn't even work with them and had to have...

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

Before I could pull everything apart for sandblasting I had to fit the new front end on the bike. The bike had a "1969 only" telescopic fork that was replaced with the more vintage "Earles Fork" or...

Re: Old bmw hot rod project pics

Fitting the motor requires some cutting and welding and adapting the drive-shaft also. Then re-wiring and a new stainless steel exhaust header pipes and mufflers.
