...hello Astek, impressive work you have been doing.

How do you obtain such anodized finish.
Im thinking in polish the part to finer grits and paste then polish again with a less finer grit to dullish it...

thanks

Awesome, working on sketches for a similar idea but more "exposed" looking with the workings and parts.

Great fab work just takes time and patience. 3 days to cut, weld, file, sand and smooth your own levers versus 10 minutes to order and bolt on alloy ones is a priceless feeling.

Thanks a lot guys, extremely busy with the project, working more than 8hours every day just on this bikes components and there is still so much remaining. Designing is one thing making it work another..

Thanks Rathead,
.
.

Sometimes I get overwhelmed when a part takes too long, especially when i have to make two of a certain part like the levers, dogbones, fender struts etc..

then i switch to something else that will keep me motivated like this litle guy here..

Here is some stuff that takes lots of time but makes the bike look clean; hidden tank mounts...

the fit..



detail... with two passes on the weld joints i ensured that the mount pockets will remain intact...



three more, and finally done.

Thanks, depending on the project it can be more than a full time day job like during the race season where I work on the race bike. During off season I usually work on clients’ projects/private orders like this one, and do some other work on the side. My background is in industrial design so I made the decision to give priority to this type of work and put most of my time and energy into it.

Hey knuckleworks, as promised, here it is.. This is how the handlebars connect to the top yoke;

Handle bar ends..



Detail: Check out the Lipped ends that complete the curve of the original Norton top yoke.

Alp those bars are insane. Absolutely beautiful! You keep moving the bar higher and higher. Keep the updates coming.

yeah sure, why not... you don't need to be a workaholic. that's you, right? in your avatar??
.
.

So i fixed the pinholes on the gas-tank. i pressurized the tank and used soapy water. it was making nice bubbles..




I made this minimalist gas tank cap and its bung. I wanted to have a low profile cap which doesn't stick up too much and goes well with the overall design.
