Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Go ahead and use the idea for the bars that's why I posted it. I would have welded them the mountain bike bars are aluminum and the others are steel. The Indian I've had for a long time. Got it when you could find the stuff before ebay came along. Keep up the great work on your project. Frankster41
Sorry about that mate. It seems like my bike got lost in amongst all the unreal builds that are going on here. Nobody commented on it for a few months so it was lagging at the back somehwhere. Thanks for your interest mate!
I agree, id love to see this beauty finished. I havent been on this forum for a while but am really impressed with your build.
Ive got a couple of questions for you, where did you get those lugs from, they are pretty cool.
Ive also been thinking id like to learn how to braze, im also from Brisbane, where did you do your course? How much was it and how long did it take?
If you finish your bike by around August you should take your bike to "Greazefest 2012" which is a ratrod culture style show at the Rocklea showgrounds and has a "King Lowrider" section which is bicycles, i think they would get a big kick out of your bike. Ill be taking my bikes this year and would love to see your Indian in person.
Hey mate. I did my brazing course at Brackenridge TAFE. It is one of the modules that they do as part of their bicycle frame building course. I didn't do the whole course but I sent an email to the teacher and asked to just do the brazing part. Im sure you could do the same and they would be willing to accommodate you. When I did the brazing it was at the same time they were doing a pennyfathing building course, which was pretty cool to watch at the same time. I went three fridays in a row for the full day and it only set me back 60 bucks, well worth it! Just look up the skills tech website and I'm sure you will find all the info on there otherwise just give them a call. Its a great little course and I learnt heaps but its just practice, practice and more practice.
Will be hitting up greasefest for sure this year! Thanks for the heads up, hopefully the bike is done by then otherwise I might just bring the rat fink along!
Thanks for checking my build out!
I bought my lugs from a local bike builder. Here is his site http://www.llewellynbikes.com/
He basically works from his garage under the house at everton park but he is unreal at what he does and his bikes look unreal. I got my set of lugs of him for around 70 bucks from what I remember. Check him out mate! Pretty much the only person I could find locally that was selling them. He also designs his own and has them made up but they cost a h*** of a lot more.
What engine are you planning to use?

I been wanting to do something similar to this for more than a year now, but I just can´t get it started. Shame on me!
But I´d like to thank you for reminding me it´s possible and at the same time congratulate you for the work yo´ve been doing, it´s just amazing, can´t wait to see more!
Wanna see my rides? :
Im not planning on putting an engine in this, I would love to but unfortunately there would be nowhere for me to ride it here legally. The cops give out a nice little fine for bicycles with motors, so I'm just going to keep it as a nice peddler.
Thanks for checking my build out mate. Get stuck into yours, you will love it. It is possible even though you might think or be told it isn't at times. Good luck with it.
Thanks to you for the inspiration and kind words! I hope I can get the time needed to start my build.
Keep up the good work!
