White stripes on the skirts reminds me of an old BMW not a bad look...
I like that nice pinstripe
Got the tank painted and got the stickers for the tank put on.
Had some time to get few things done
Thought had a pic of sprocket cleaned up guess not.
Took the pedals apart cleaned up the bearings fresh grease painted them black and cleaned and new grease in the front and rear hubs.
Hopefully Will get some assembly time today
Pic of the refurbished pedals
Nice work on the pedals
Little bit of final doodad was trying to figure out something to use for a rear light (law here says have to have headlight and a red light on rear) was at work and it came to me. I'm an electrician and we use light boxes so why not. Drilled a hole in back of the box
Lined the inside with aluminum tape and inserted light
has a replacement brake light lens that fit perfect and
just need to mount it and get some pics for the finished section
Very resourceful, you should wire it with some flexible steel conduit to complete the theme!
Maybe on the next one
Finished my bike up got some pics for the finished section today
Turned out great!
In case anyone missed it, this bike started life as a girl!!! Bravo!
Won't let me download my ride video says too large only 12 seconds?
Upload it to youtube first and then post a link.
the bike looks great!! what handlebars are those?
Dig the video! I always have thought it should be mandatory to see these bike builds actually being ridden as a qualification to being 'Finished'. Looks like a comfy ride!
Harley Davidson sportster was a pain getting them on
Its a very comfy ride the seat is real cushy
Congrats man, the bike looks great!
Thank you it was fun almost ready for another build.
