Here's a few shade tree mods on my bike:

This is the caliper mount adapter I made to allow the use of late model 4 piston brakes on early forks. It is a Harley caliper, I just shaved it.


This is a shot of the fender struts. They're stainless and welded to the bottom of the fender to look cleaner. Next time I paint, I'm going to polish them. I started to this time but it takes a lot of time to polish stainless, so I gave up and just painted them to match the fender. The fender is a $10 trailer fender from Northern Tool.



Here's the clips ons. I made a 41mm slug that I bolted into the top fork cap on the wide glie forks. The clips ons attach to that. I had them on the forks, but it was too low. The clip on clamps are Vortex, a Craiglist find for $40. The bars are 1" turned down to 7/8" for the Vortex clamps. Also note the spacers and mounts for the bar end mirrors. They needed to be moved out just a bit to keep them from interfering with the clutch and brake levers.



Right side mid controls. These are off a Suzuki and bolted to a mounting plate attached to the tranny. I also made the timing cover.



Left side controls:



Homemade pipes. The mufflers are turbo flows for a car. I'm not sure if they'll stay or not. Gonna ride 'em for a while and see. I also made the air box.



There a lots more mods you can't see, like relocating the rear shock mounts to lift the rear up an inch. And a great deal of mods to the heads. These are actually very similar to the S&S SA heads, but they were made before S&S had SA heads. It's a 113" motor that makes 144 hp.

There it is. Not as fancy as some, but it suits me well. I like to ride the north Georgia mountains fairly aggressively, so it's nice to have some ground clearance and handling.

If you made it this far, thanks for looking. Hope this inspires you to make some of your own shit.

This fuel tank is what we have made this weekend, I have a standard tank but it is on loan. I have never done any metal work before. my pal who has years of experience helped, he did all the wealding and i did some cutting and hammering and filing/grinding.
This seat is just for mocking up . I want to make this shape properly

Not much fabrication but I welded a few tabs on this WWII postal bag/box to give myself a little tool box

Here's a few things for my IH build I've got going on

39mm trees with 41mm forks. I machined a bushing to adapt the tube tops to the different top tree.






Used the top of a rod from a spool valve for for my top motormount. Shaped the flatbar later


Filled in the old petcock location on my tank and moved it to the bottom of both sides with 2 rad little brass valves.


Had to space my rear sprocket out to align with tranny sprocket so I machined the spacer to match the shape of the hub of a dual flange. I turned it on the lathe and Indexed it in the mill using 2 drillbits the same size.

wanted to lift the front of my tank a bit so I made a spacer/mounting bracket to match the tunnel.


Running a drum wheel off of a mid 70's RM250 so I had to make a tight brake stay with the now narrower frontend (5 1/2" between lowers). Drilled and tapped the brake hub for a 3/8 NF bolt.




Bent up and threaded some rod to mount my oilbag. It's a kick only bike so I can run a smaller battery. I'll have another mount/anchor underneath center to stabilize it.

I made this jockey shift out of 1/2" stainless and a candlestick from the local goodwill.

This is my adjustable rear fender mount. It goes up, down, forwards and back, and even a little yaw. I saw a youtube video of some dude using heim joint rod ends but it looked worst than these.

Top:


I used 3 axle plates.


Bottom:

Hopefully I don't kill myself with this, there's only like 1/4" before it hits the tire.

The brassknuckle part is from rocktitemetalfab.

Makes me wish I had a laser cutter thingy or a waterjet.

Out of all the art work on this link, this one caught my eye. It is the little things, even if no one ever notices, it makes your ride that much more enjoyable! Great job guys, now I'm going to have to introduce myself and show you guys my first build and current ride.
