Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Looks awesome!! My next build is going to be a bike for my wife, if I don't do it she won't let me have my 5th. bike...
Still wondering what to do but I guess I'll use a man's frame for her bike (she won't even know the difference) so I can use it myself! yeah, I'll cheat her into my 5th. bike so I can build the 6th!
Got Pep Boys in your area? Little chrome valve stem covers are a couple of bucks.
it's all about the bikes, man. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50053
I was going to update my sig line, but I'm not seein' anything worth plagiarizing right now.
Very nice!!! Thank you for the picture.
I'm about to build up another ladies Savage I'll be starting a "Savage No 2" thread soon!!!
Digging up an old thread here..
I just received a tank for my wife's Savage from RRB member "frankster41". I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever see one on this style girls frame so I'm pretty stoked to have this one now!
It has what I would call a "horn button delete plate". Was this a factory thing companies did on lesser more inexpensive models? Just add a plug to the hole and no horn unit inside? I realize that this frame was badged many times over by different companies, so who knows where the tank originated... All I know is it fits like a glove! When the bodywork and paint gets done, I'll polish and reinstall the delete plate. I kinda like it... well that is if its a factory deal. By the looks of the rivets I'd say its been there as long as the tank has been around. Any thoughts??
I figured since I'm working on the wife's bike.. why not search for a rear rack. I just nabbed this super straight 40s rack from "Slick". I think that'll be it for this one...
I got the tank halves body worked and primed today. I also made a stencil of the original stripe/arrow graphic so I can recreate it. I always get a bad feeling when I bead blast original paint & graphics.. So this time I wanted to bring them back exactly how they were, just with new paint. Hope they come out good.
