Started learning how to weld earlier this year, but have made good use of my little Hobart 135...

Picked up a sissy bar at a swap meet for $15. After cutting off all scabed on brackets I had a good starting point.

Inspired by the frame forgings I made these up after-hours at work to mount the sissy to the axle forgings.



Then cut and drilled some slugs to bolt the sissy to the threaded bungs that were already welded to my fender. I used some 1/2" round stock to connect the sissy to the slugs - note the awesome flux core welds.





...and the final product.

License plate/ tail light braket/ motor mount.
And repurposed stock foot pegs on a Triumph. I bent up a shifter out of round rod, but don't have a pic.

I didn't like the feel of forward controls, and the stock controls were too far back for me... so I made my own controls, so that the pegs are about 6 inches forward and 2 inches up from the stock location. I also made the brass pegs on my lathe. I made the brake lever and shifter out of stainless and parts of stock harley stuff. I also tig welded fins onto the stock clutch cover with 1/4 inch round stock aluminum, and sanded them smooth.

Diggin around a box at a yard sale and found an aluminum curvy bracket for 25 cents, cut off the end, remove the gold paint, drill out some holes and a pretty cool headlight mount.

I built this Iron Head XR750 along with a former emplyer when we diced to try an XR motor in the sidehack I was racing. Since the cut off year was 1972, and we could afford to pry away an Alloy XR750 from any of the collectors, we built this. It started as a set of 1968 XR flywheels and a set of '65 cases and two rear 900cc heads with the original small valves. Everything else was made by Dave and I.

Machining the cases for through studs. I also machined them for superblend bearings and filled the speedo drive and reinforced the tranny case.


This is the front head. Push rod cutouts were filled, new ones cut. Intake and exhaust spiggoted.


New cylinders were make from scratch.



The sump with flywheel oil scrapers. This worked very well to prevent windage inside the cases.




The assembled engine with the sump and new oil pump that had taller FL scavenger gears.




In the frame with megaphones.

Very lowtech but this is the brakepedal for one of my bikes:





Was too lazy to make some linkage to get it on the right side so I figured why not brake with the heel and shift with the toes?

Some pics from my NorField build.

A tank strap I made from a sheet of alum. Used 2.00 brass clasps from Ace hardware.





Slimline frame I made from chromoly. Not sure if I'll ever make one of these again as it was the biggest pain in the fucking ass to do.





Transmission mounts.








Finding a 530 rear sprocket for a Royal Enfield got me no where. I didn't want steel as they are heavy so I bought an aluminum sprocket for a CB750 off eBay for $11 and machined a lip to fit over the hub.




Battery tray. I was obsessed with saving weight during the build. Wish I made that out of aluminum....
