    Thanks Brother!

    After a few variations that night that i hated, i final landed on something i could get down with. and I have Anubis to thank for it.








    this stripping was planed to be two 1/8 ones one red one white, down the center with a small crest about a third the way up the tank.
    i was not happy



    after getting here, i realized the bottom gold line didn't follow the baseline of the tank, so i had to fix that. Thanks Anubis God of the Dead, some creative eye you have.

    This weekend was relatively productive. A few steps forward and maybe a step or two backwards.
    But I cut down and painted the pipes, i think they should be gloss, so they will get repainted. I bent up some hard line for the oil and primary vent. and I got the kicker finally installed, though ill have to remove it and polish the case, and I'm gonna put a black spring and kicker arm on it.





    I was fortuniate enough to be asked to help on a buddies pan head, his frame got pretty scratch up and wanted help correcting it. I have never actually painted on scratch up powder coat, so i referred to the internet as to how types of paint to use. It said nail polish — don't use nail polish. we did, its color turned and degraded the powder coat it touched, we ended up using oneshot, which wasn't perfect either, but it was what we had available.


    I have been limping around for the past two weeks due to being an idiot, and decided to go skim boarding with a younger cousin while drunk. Sprained my ankle pretty bad, but this weekend i decided it was time to see if it was healed up enough to work a foot clutch, it was!

    It's few and far between these days that I get to actually sit behind a computer so, most of my updates on my build have been in instagram. I got some time right now so I'll post up some updates here. As you got to see in another post, I was pretty screwed by a "professional" welder that was supposed to fix the tiny crack in my front rocker box.. Still trying to get that sorted with the welder himself but, in the mean time, I have moved forward on my own. I purchased a new one and got it reassembled and all is well in the chopper world except the dent in my pocket. I spent several days off of work getting all the small details sorted, grinding frame, making brackets and spacers, final fitting on the fuel tank, cutting the rear fender among other things. basically, besides a few details, everything is ready to assemble. I have the tank and fender off to paint and I have started on final assembly of everything else and wiring. I'm on track right now to be done in the next two weeks if the chopper gods keep smiling on me.

    engraved the air cleaner cover I got from TC bros Choppers

    My rear set mount finally came in the mail, but they forgot to send installation directions.


    I didn't have a torch hot enough that could bend the 3/4 rod, so i made a trip to Kieno's shop and borrowed his oxy acetylene torch for about 20secs. So nice. It was exciting and i took photos for everyone, but then keino let me take his '47 750 flathead out for a quick rip. and i figured a shot of that bike would be a better use of your eyes time. Such a fun ride.


    back to my shop, welded up the entire rear set mounts, and getting ready to attach it to the frame.


    HIGH AND TIGHT! the way a cafe bike should be. looks like ill be doing some stretching before any rides on this beast.







    immediately after this, i went to my local bar got a beer, a shot, and the sexy bartenders number. all in all a very successful day.

    Front end is totally torn down now, been shaving parts down to final form to get them a bit lighter and prettier.




    Planning to pick up some dimple dies for that big square tube that serves as the lower swing arm, punching a dozen plus flared 3/4" holes in it should perk it up a bit looks wise and reduces mass by ~10% and makes it stiffer.




    Layed out a pattern for the bridge / ball joint mount, reduces its mass by almost 50% and gives it some visual appeal. Light blue is 1/4" radius roundover.



    Trying to figure out how to manage my lower shock mount, ended up with a kind of arty shot by accident.



    Obviously I won't be done by end of September, but that's not really an issue since I'm not one of the 12. I thank those 12 for their inspiration, I really felt encouraged to step up my game this year! Hopefully I'll have at least one more intersting picture before this all wraps up.
