Here's a simple thing. Guy brought me this Unity light, wanted me to somehow fill in the switch hole...

So after some thought, got out the aircraft tools, made a little stainless filler panel, and riveted it in place. Looks like it's supposed to be there, nuff said I think.

Nice job there on the motor mount Glen. Did you make a jig to build it, or tack it up on the bike?

Same here, just curious. I put a brass spacer on mine. Got Time today to finish the battery tray. Used some #10 all thread that was lying around to mock it up. Will change it out for some smooth rod and nice fastners.

To me... details are those SMALL things that you do yourself...

I took a bolt and made a screw out of it.


Then made a washer for it to fit in.


Then some little stands... and welded them in the frame.


Here it is bolted together.

I wanted to carry the ridge up over the tank, so I cut a piece about 1/2" wider than the ridge and at the bottom left enough so I could fold the fender into a point to stretch the tank (which is really dead space as I didn't cut the tank at all).

Welded the piece onto the tank. Hammer hammer, little bit of filler, and voila...
Tank is stretched into a point and has the ridge to match the fenders.

Watch out, I'm almost a Salinas Boy now.
Nice work, Nappy! Looks great.

Here's some stuff on the knuck I'm trying to finish.. (engine almost there!)
Cut off outer primary ear and drilled it for my elec. start, powdercoated it along w/ my r. fender (Reflecta-Chrome PC)Also cut, drilled and shaped the "scallops" on the ends of the oil tank my friend made. (It was a little too plain..)

Plasma cut and ground out this plate- taillight / remote filter mount and had it chromed.. made the frame mounts out of 3/8" rod.

Wanted to use some of Kutty's Hippy Killer shift pegs I had because the color and style matched the bike so well, but they were kinda short, so I cut some aluminum tubing down and drilled it to make some cool extensions.. they will be polished..

These are my cheapo wide glide stubbie risers to springer studs/and aluminum spacers, for the cheap "boardtracker" look, with some 19.00 drag bars I cut down..

Heres a pic from the rear... engine's supposed to be done in a week

What are those extensions for? Gonna put a P-Pad on it? With a lanky ol' lady on the back fender... those would put her knees up behind her ears! I like it!

Sam.
Extensions and NO P-pad are for "P-ssy emergency"... when you show them how they have to ride to your house; and they still do it; you know it's on... and the "knees up behind the ears" thing... EXACTLY.
It's the only place I put them..
