I don't think crisp is the goal. Looks good to me. CNC's and water jets take out the human element

Cigarette lighter, very trick! People will think that toggle is a hidden mad max kill switch. You could plug in one of those hand held boat spotlights and beam cages that don't see you.

What did that brass sprocket come out of?

Curious, when you building up the aluminum are you use a tig torch or a spool gun? I love the material thickness changes it gives the parts real depth and makes it look like you carve each piece out.

You should start a Youtube channel and video your progress and steps. I am sure you would get a good following.

No crisp lines wanted on this project... this is where soft edges, patina, grinding marks and such on all the small parts are as much a part of the artwork as the overall project.

Dunno man, it was in my brass scrap box, couldn't find the dust cover selector thing so thought I would make one.
Yeah spool fed.

I had 1 video of beating something and finishing it off with rock treatment, Didn't last long. I realised I didn't have to prove to someone I used a rock.
My video sucked I should of put some 10minute guitar solo in the background.
Mixed in with random shots of people riding 1 handed.

Here is my kick pedal finished,
I went around the cutout with a hammer and chisel.
Looks good to me.



Back in a few weeks with more shit.
Thanks for all the comments.

I can understand if your heart is not into producing short films/videos. Producing the videos should be for your enjoyment.
Personally I truly enjoy watching people work and discovering different techniques and fabrication by hand. That is what I use Youtube for mostly. Watching fabricators do their thing.
I know it probably takes the fun out of it when people expect you to prove yourself to them, but screw 'em.

Your work is what has inspired me to build many items for my bike and even more so for my next bike. Especially your hand made kicker.

Maybe one day you will think about producing a short film for Vimeo? Some amazing artists and films there.

No need for solos and biker babes. Just some relaxing music and your art-

I just read all 14 pages of this thread. As so many have said before your work is inspirational. It is refreshing to see someone that is using basic equipment and producing exceptional work!!

Thanks man.
Got no excuse for doing it bad just because of bad tools.
I'd be embarrassed to put this up among some of the world class builders that camp out here.

I find not enough hours to do some of this stuff I enjoy doing,
It's probably a time thing and money for some of that equipment more than anything..

Don't like to type reply without something to offer the table but it seems rude not to reply.
Just some simple wire guide from a bike part.





Thanks.

Someday, Grub, I will make a pilgrimage down to Kiwi land and see this beast for myself.

To me this would be the same as when others see the Sistine Chapel.

grub is the kiwi shinya of JJ.
I get a shinya feel, not in the way the bike looks compared to his, or even necessarily the fab techniques, or that he uses aluminum and so do you.
the hand carved and detail is what im thinking.

ya ever think about picking up a lathe? not a cnc one of course. But I could only imagine the crazy stuff you would come up with on a spinner.

Naw, don't be embarrassed, me thinks more than a few hold you in that regard. I, for one, appreciate the fact that this "minor" thread of yours has me approaching fab problems in a whole new way of thinking. Got me out of the box, so to say. Keep it up, and Thanks.
I'll buy you a beer someday.

I was just trying to give some props and make a comparison to a builder I find honorable, without gushing all over the thread. If someone already said it, ohh well. I still enjoy seeing what grub comes up with next. and, when this one is done, what will the next project be?

You guys are all too kind.
Thanks heaps but your really overrating me and this shit.

Cleaned up transmission case a bit.
While it was out again I needed to add some subtle detail.











Happy with the shift plate.
The link rod has been scorned but it will be spiral sleeved and should look OK.
