A place for photos and descriptions of your bikes.
Here some pics from the frontside as you asked.
And a little closer.
Also a nice vieuw on how much space there is left between the tire and the forklegs.
Cheers Jack, great view from the front, that's one mean looking machine ! Headlight looks killer
Amazing how different your Basman looks compared to mine, handlebarwise. It's all in the details, right ?
Wow, that's a stunning photo Jack ! Totally printable and above-your-bed-hangeable if the wife will let you that is
A shame though it takes removing the bb bearing to switch the chainguard on or off, not a simple change you can switch back too.
But I like mine as well without it, no more chain hitting the guard. Clean look !
New chain comes my way.
Finally found the fat chain that i would like to have.
straight plates to withstand extreme loads
1/2" x 1/8"
pin length: 12.4 mm
New chain is here.
Old vs. new. I like the straight sideplates of the new chain.
New one +/- 5 mm wider.
On the bike.
Like the smooth out and inside.
Just a FAT chain,that looks good on the bike.Don't you think so?
Massive, I like it a lot
A few questions if you don't mind:
- did you have to buy 2 chains for your Bas, or are these long enough ? I needed my 2nd chain for only 20 links or so...got lots of spare links now
- Looks like tanktracks rolling down the street, very robust. What I like about my halflinkchain though, it makes no sound at all. Is this chain silent ?
Yes i had to buy 2 chains also.
One chain has 96 links I needed 130 links on my bike.
So i have a lot of spare links left also.
Yes it's a silent chain,no strange sounds.
For parts you just have to search the web.
I found every part i've used on the bike at the web.

And with a little luck you can get the parts cheap also.
Heck yeah I forgot to mention the clocks.
You can get them straight at Ross Harjes.
You can also check on http://www.ebay.com search: handlebar clock or something like that.
You may find the same clocks for less money.
