Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

It all looks slick as hell. That is a cool pattern you made with the knurler. Real tidy.

The four ears projecting radially from the end of the oil tank: what's their purpose going to be?

Re: Fender ID thread?

Thanks for the bike pic. I glimpsed a piece of it in your fender pics, was curious, didn't want to haul your thread off track by asking for a full-on photo.

Sorry I can't help with your fender...

Re: a little "shut in" work

Yup, cool indeed. Kind of steampunk, if that description doesn't make your teeth hurt.

Re: How were these headers made?

Okay!

Your approach sounds far more plausible than the one shown below, since (I imagine) twisty chopper pipes would likely have been made in small quantities and by lower-tech means. Thank you...

How were these headers made?

A poster on some other site wonders what technique was used to make these gaudy exhausts. How do you twist such thin metal without rippin' it up or distorting it?

Thanks for your thoughtful reply....

Re: Norton Model 99

Dang. That's big thinking applied to (sort of) small stuff. Really nice result, G.

Was your objection to the stock manifold angle purely in terms of looks, or do you envisage a functional...

Re: I'm New Here???

Mm. That's a mightyfine bike altogether. Did you make the exhaust? I don't think I've seen that approach before, and it's a nice setup.

Also: Welcome. Or double welcome, again, whatever.

Re: Norton Model 99

Hey, Goldy, whatta you think of this Atlas? I like it for its understatement. That is: It's little bit gaudy here and there, but mostly it looks like a well cleaned up near-stocker. (Yeah, I realize...

Re: let's talk seats for bit

[Why didn't bikes like Hirschberg's catch on in a big way? Too stock-looking? Or people who liked them bought Superglides instead? Or what?

Sorry, don't mean to pull this thread off track. I'll...

DANG. Thanks for posting those up. Did you just say everything you know about the Hendersons, or do you (for instance) whether they were prototypes that never went into production? 'Cause the earlier...

Re: Haven't been here for a while.

If you don't mind my asking, what is the first bit to make pavement contact if you go into a corner a little too hot, or the corner radius diminishes partway through?

Just curious, no subtext.

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Those are supercool. But don't they need about 150,000 speed holes to look finished?

Kidding. Speed holes would dink up their, uh, muted refinement and look cheap.

Re: 41 el

Pipes look long to me as well. Opinions aren't quite like assholes, though. We only get one each of the latter.
