    Looking great.
    How do you mount the seatpan to the frame?

    There are two bolts going through the bottom of the pan that are tack welded on underneath the foam. They bolt to the front hinge. There is another bolt that goes through the perforated stainless on the sissy bar and threads into a nut welded to the inside of the seat pan.

    Mocked up rabbit ears and T bars. I was leaning toward the T bars until I put a duffel bag on the back. Soooo comfy with the rabbit ears. I’ma need it to be as comfy as possible for long hauls to camp sites.

    Got the bars welded, tank mounted, and began making a jockey shifter. When I started to bend the metal, however, the O2 on the torch started acting funny, hard to dial in, and then it fucking exploded in my face. Ears were ringing for a while and I had to clean out my fucking drawers, but no parts got blown off.



    Turns out the seat on the regular is fucked and it slowly just kept going up to full tank pressure on my ass until the hose exploded.

    What regulator was that? If in doubt as to model please post a pic. The oxygen regulator blowoff valve should have saved the hose when the seat (usual failure on most regs) let go.

    I rebuild OA regs and torches for myself to factory specs and have a morbid oxy-acetylene fetish.

    It’s a Victor 250-80-540. Ordered a rebuild kit for it. It broke a gauge a few weeks ago which I thought was just a bad gauge but now I know was overpressurizing. Definitely never had any blowoff or safety popoff other than the goddamn explosion.

    That is weird and the first of that era Victor style regulator I've ever heard or read of doing that. I'd unscrew the cap from the blowoff valve and look it over when you rebuild. I'm trying to imagine how that disc would stick.

    Have a manual. The valve that didn't open is the "relief" valve shown on page 2. The hex cap is what to unscrew, not the fitting on the body.

    http://www.esabna.com/eu/literature/...0regulator.pdf is confirmed good multiple times on Firefox which reads .pdfs without a plugin. The many other features and add-ons are why I prefer it though I use many browsers to keep current.

    https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

    Chrome and Opera no joy. I'm not on Windows so no Edge or IE tests on my end. If you "save link as" without altering the file name you'll get the .pdf. It's too large for me to attach.

    Started turning my shifter into a foot clutch. I cut the pedal pivot off and moved it forward so the angle would be better. Then I made a little bracket that goes around the alternator to hold the front part of the clutch cable. We’ll see how it goes.

    Got the seat upholstered and mocked everything up. Looking pretty fucking good in my opinion.

    Foot pegs, clutch controls, and shifter done(ish).

    Front brake pedal seems pretty far from the foot peg? Bike looks great though!

    If a classic jiffy stand will clear your belt drive they're much better than the bendy stock POS and you already have the mount installed. I use them on both my FXRs.

    Yeah, it kinda is. A few guys I’ve ridden with have similar setups and don’t seem to have an issue though. I left the mounting peg for the forward controls, so it’s like a mini peg right in front if the pedal I can use if needed.
