Re: Airhead bobbing...

Thanks to OldGriffo (from BikeMe forums) for the "tanks". Bit of sizing up and assessing how to mount them. Also will have to make/source a fuel inlet with a cap. Fuel taps will need to be sources and made too. Tanks will be sprayed satin black from spray can. http://s19.postimage.org/5k9tjp1cz/1024...

Re: 3inch scissor springs.

I am seeing postage from the states quoted between $40 and $50 USD on eBay. This is way more than the springs themselves. Always ask for USPS for Shipping .... not UPS, FedEx, DHL etc . It's the cheapest option from my experience. Ollie from Independant Parts is a Member on here and a good solid bl...

Still looking for some. 3 to 3.5 inches. The ones I went and looked at were only 1 inch. Way too small.

3inch scissor springs.

Am after a set of 3inch scissor springs. Don't have to be new. Little bit of oldness would be good. Must still have their "spring" in them though.

A wobbly perch would go well on the BMWobbly.

I can make shims.

Re: Airhead bobbing...

Very narrow to say the least. I have sat on it. Given that the bike will still have its rear shock fitted and the seat will be sprung it should not be too bad. Short runs should be fine. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-y3ydKlqc_LA/T7nMUB-4FYI/AAAAAAAAEFg/leB-QPN6odA/s1600/1024xmockedSEAT+2011-01-08+002.jp...

Re: Airhead bobbing...

Lots of filing and smoothing edges down have been done today. What seemed like millions of holes drilled. Coat of Satin Black has been applied. Stainless steel nuts and bolts are being used to bolt the plates together over the hide and padding. I am loving how this is shaping up. http://4.bp.blogspo...

Re: Airhead bobbing...

Cheers guys.

Thinking about making a small 'hump' at the back of the seat. That way I can mount the brake light from it. Or a LED strip light under the seat base for the brake light.

Re: Airhead bobbing...

Started on the frame that will go over the hide and then be bolted to the sear base to hold all the padding and hide down. This is only the start of the smoothing and shaping. Cut out of tread plate. May be the only bit of tread plate to go onto this build too. Now the file goes to work. http://i45....
