A blow by blow photographic account of chopping from stock to chop... This projcet has been given its own forum due to the large number of photos it contains making uploading slow for those of you still on "dial up".

33. Sneak Preview... Bike is Rolling!

Post by admin » Fri May 25, 2007 11:14 pm

G'day all,
Here are the pics Dad sent me yesterday. Probably not the best shots so hope Dad doesn't mind me posting them, but I know a few of you are hanging out to see these almost as much as I was! :P

If you notice the seat looking a little odd, don't worry it's not covered properly yet. Still has a bit of work to be done, but it is starting to look like a bike again! :D

Front guard...

Post by Prof » Sat May 26, 2007 12:38 am

Front mudguard mounts made today from stainless and polished. Mudguard mounted. Will have a couple of pics on Sunday night.

Rear guard WAS mounted and tailght wired in but had to make some more clearance for the chain guard and guard now needs a repaint. Not such a bad idea anyway as there were quite a few pits that the painter missed.

That bike stand by the way is made from scrap I had around. Really strong. I pinched the 12 ton jack from my pipe bender. Bike is held by a vertical stand at the front that has an adjustable bar that clamps to forks. Nice and steady.
