Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
no time to work on bike - been slammed w/work, so stuck at computer - - friends call me king-T (among other names can't say here) so I decided to make quick emblem for front or ?? of my first rat bike - also did quick rendering to play with colors - just goofin'. - should have bike updates tomorrow, I am going with orange as accent color - have all AM to play, then off to vintage motorbike rally later in day - they have 1/4 mile dirt track! Hope you are all having as much fun as I am with your build! Cheers, T.
hey thanks RBR & cman - yeah, spokes are in illust. I saw your illust rendering as well. looked cool! I draw in illust a lot (did 134 icons for Nokia mobile device last week that wore me out!) - anyways, I just drew on few spokes (set of 3 spokes), then duplicated/rotated from hub area - they look like crud, but I needed a visual reference... BUT, I woke up this AM w/an alternate color idea - going to play today... PEACE, T. - I can email you spokes if you want - but they're not great.... email me if you want...
Hey all. Sorry, my camera died, so had to wait ona new one. Made some progress in meantime. I went ahead and tore seat apart and changed it up a little. Painted it flat black with gloss "chevrolet orange" racing stripe (stripe will carry through to other parts) and under seat bracket thingy. Put small piece of mouse pad under cover, and riveted it all down - not great, not super comfy, but solid & heavy!
I have my rims sanded, and # plate almost done too, will send pics next day or so - also going to redo my forks, strip again and go for flat black rather than semi gloss - then use orange as highlight... still lot's to do, but coming right along. Some GREAT looking bike in this build-off! Rock On. Have fun!
Hello all, sorry for not posting as much as others - been swamped - have had a little time to update a few things, and start on final build.
I had to re-sand & re-paint the frame (I goofed it all up). I stripped the semi-gloss paint I put on forks and re-pimered & painted them flat black and added a orange gloss stripe and accents.
Got rims done... finally - now I see what so many of you takled the rims first!
Found some new handlebars, I liked the Sea Doo bars, but I think these funky ones fit the bike better - more of a rod/tracker/thing - here is bike as of last night.
I have wasted many, many hours trying to figure out/make the fenders work - will try again today - they are the toughest part for sure!
I have truly enjoyed seeing all these bikes come to life! More soon, should finish up this week!!! Wil take many pics when done ../
