UT-OH ! I' m telling mom !
My “fenders” arrived today, a lot sooner than I thought. They are just about an inch longer than the wheel. Hopefully I can adjust them to get the proper look.
Stay thirsty my friend!
Today I decided I should take the day off. I have a good start to a fender but it needs some more work
I bought a plastic welder from Harbor freight and got both fenders together. They need some sanding but are close to done.
I also made a bracket to strengthen them and to mount them
While I was wandering around the lumberyard I found my chain guard and possibly a rear rack.
The fender reminds me of the 70's Chevy C10 step side trucks!
I couldn't resist seeing how it would look with a more squared opening and the wheels tucked.
Interesting but probably not the look that you're going for though.
Interesting look but I am not ready to get the saw out yet. I like that squared off shape but not the size of the opening. My first truck was an 1983 Chevy.
Fun build. I love it when builders use odd items to get the vibe they want.
While wandering through an antique store on vacation I came across this mirror for $4. I am not sure if I will use it but I figured I better get it just in case.
I need to get serious about this bike soon. A friend gave me two of these today but they need to be chrome if I am going to use them.
I got the fender mounted today.
I am hoping to get paint tomorrow.
Glad to see you are back on it! RaT oN~!
Made it to the paint store and came home with aqua green.
Love the sewing machine covers! How much did you pay for a plastic welder?
$15 Harbor Freight. It worked fine. For the amount I am going to use it I didn’t want to make much of an investment.
Pretty sure I can hear the seat post laughing at me.
The wheel covers are cool. Try getting an airbrush artist to paint some mag wheels on them.
Got a coat of paint on the frame today. Still need to clear coat.
Getting to the fun stuff!
That slab of marble is gonna be a heck of a chain guard!
I ordered a bunch of parts from Worksman to replace the ones that were damaged during disassembly. They should be here in 10 days. I tried a mahogany stain on scrap birch. It’s about time to build a box.
