    Default revisiting an old friend.

    Sold the shovel last year, to a friend. He doesn't have a shop to work in, so it stayed with me. I've kind of taken over the build...not by choice, but out of neccessity.
    Some of the stuff is the same, some of it is new or re-worked due to failure or poor R&D last time around...

    Ideally, the paint would be much different, maybe new tins, so I can keep these ones for some wall art.

    Very close to finishing...electrical, fresh fluids, some misc nuts and bolts and odds and ends, seat arriving today...and fingers crossed and toss out a little prayer.

    I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't be a little sad, seeing baby bird leave the nest...

    Does that back fender have mounting points other than the back strut holes?

    good question.

    infact, it does. there are two bungs welded on the underside of the cross-piece under the seat.

    I've tested it out, mounted it all up and then sat on the fender and bounced up and down...not a bit of flex whatsoever. I'm 205# and his girlfriend is a whopping 100#...so I think it'll be fine.

    Good deal...I didn't know if it was functional or just a splash guard.

    I will say a little prayer that she treats him better than she treated you the first time out.......as your neighborhood isn't as flat as mine! Maybe you should add gas on your checklist......

    STANDARD,

    you asked about the fender mounting???

    two bungs welded to the frame, through the underside of the fender, and then of course, two bolts at the struts. Solid as a rock.

    ***not welded by me*** but, it works and we were in a huge time crunch...refer to the other post about settling with ugly welds in order to ride...

    Thanks for the last shot of the fender mount. I've been trying to get the "how" in my head for months. Next, how is the tag/light mounted? Nice set up, and overall sweet bike.

    no problem...its pretty basic and it works. as for the tag/light, it kept it super simple. I used the lower shock bolt.

    So Frisco, recently got engaged(poor guy)...

    and he was kind of hinting at having the bride to be put her heels somewhere other than on the exhaust pipe and clutch basket...

    so, I fashioned up a fairly quick-on quick-off set of mounts...spent way too much time bending roundstock trying to figure out the best way to keep her fancy boots from melting...and allow him to kick the bike over. I had some aluminum stock laying around, and whipped up a set of shiny pegs...seeing that his lady likes shiny objects, she'll hopefully approve.

    Not the planet's most amazing creation I've conjured up...and I sure as hell ain't no Kim Boyle...but, these are simple and work.





    next, due to provincial red tape bullshit, Frisco's got to have a front fender as well...not much to look at, and I don't much care for a front fender...BUT, this way, it gives the appearance that we're not going to just rip it off right after...

    obviously, my skills are not that of some others here, and my photo skills are that much worse...

    finally got some electrical supplies, and should hopefully get around to wiring this weekend...??!?!?!?!
