Sorry for no posts but I cater to the automotive industry and July and December is what they call shut downs. We go to car plants, rearrange, install and modify machines at this time, My time has been limited with Austin and bikes but it pays the bills so...
Austin has a huge list of work lined up for us starting tomorrow afternoon so we will get back to posting.
I had planned this delay so he is still on target for Davenport (boy I'd like to go to Wauseon this weekend but it don't look good)
Remember Caswell Plating sells DYI cad plating kits. Great folks to deal with a fair on pricing.
Sorry for not posting Pics for a while but it has been to hot in the shop to work. Last winter I asked wife for some of those fancy tube type heaters because it was alot of work keeping the shop heated with the wood burner and she said ok. A couple weeks ago I asked her for air conditioning and her response was and walked away mumbling about men...... guess that meant no???
Anyway back to the bikes.
Please keep in mind what this project was for when looking at pics. By Austin for Austin. If you have any advice (on bikes not Air conditioners) please post them, he checks the forum daily. I am no expert on all things WLA so if you see anything he can improve on let him know.
We are working hard to make Davenport but its gonna be close.
I was supposed to drop off my 39EL frame to Matt Olsen for repairs in Davenport but I dont think I will make it due to this build. Respect to Matt and all the members that helped with the give away bike. this is alot of work!!! Deadlines and a highly motivated boss (kid), this is kinda like a job!!
while he had his tools out I figured he could fix the chair his oversized friends broke!!
your 13 year old ever get brave and wave wrench at you? ill knock the taste otta his mouth
I have a 62 pan with a sidecar and his mom said she would like to have her own 3 wheeler some day so I showed up with this one day. Might explain Airconditioner reaction...........
Thought we were lookin good until....
have to cut off tank mounts and move tanks. If you can afford to buy a press, make a die to stamp out parts why I ask why cant you find a frame to jig up your parts before you ship them to customers.
that's not all that wont fit. your dash base will need so much cutting and grinding. i got the same tanks for my 45. i wanted bomber nose art on my tanks so i bought new ones thinking it would be better then butting a lot of work into old ones. boy was i wrong. i should have fixed the oem tanks. who ever sales the tanks drills and taps the oil fitting in house. when my tanks came in the mail they had a note that i should use cream to hold the metal shavings in place. that was the last v twin part i ever bought!
