Weekend Wigglin'



I've had a plan to build me a custom king and queen seat for my motorbike for awhile now, but couldn't seem to find the time to do it. It's a pain in the ass. I got tired of having a seat bungee corded to my frame like some clown. That said, I consulted my adviser of chemical reaction, Danny and my adviser in terms of technical proficiency, Josh and got to stepping. I planned on mounting the seat to my existing seat hinge up front, to allow me to switch back to my solo seat if I ever got the urge. So I cut some 16 gauge steel for the front section where it mounts to the hinge. Wasn't sure how strong the fiberglas was going to be. Drilled some holes in the pan to allow it to rest on the seat spring spud jams. Also, at Josh's request, drilled some 3/8 holes randomly in the pan so the resin could flow through and bond to the other side. Covered everything up with masking tape, then saran wrap so the fiberglass would pop off once hard. Fiberglass is nasty and stinks. But quite enjoyable. I built it up a layer at a time until I had it about 1/4" thick. Then sanded and trimmed it down. Turned out pretty good, I think and it's pretty damn hard. I realized I need to trim the front section down a bit so it follows the line of the rails. I'm going on vacation for a couple weeks, so the plan is to drop it off at the upholsterer and hopefully it'll be done when I get back. Party scene. Out.

Terry's ShuVL - redux







A couple of winters back when Dong and I shot one of the best ShuVL's on the planet for the cover of Greasy Kulture.  Terry's bike raised the bar about a hundred notches. Our photo skills struggled to do it justice, but in the end the feature turned out alright.

BF 7 Invited Builder : Oliver Jones

 
Baltimore's favorite son Oliver Jones is returning for his 2nd year as a BF builder. He shook up the group with his blacked-out Kim-Tabbed , Dual Karata Magged Shovelhead at BF6 and promises the same for this year. Oliver checked in last night and here is what he had to say...  Hello booster!
Here are the images as promised.
the design has changed slightly since I made this sketch last July.

The bike, in a nut Shell Is going to be an ULTRA HIGH PERFORMANCE build in a chopper silhouette.

The 4spd frame will be modified to fit the Billet 107 C.I. 12/1 generator shovel motor. with about 2" up in the front and -2" in the back to shorten it.
Im using Sorensen Performance billet cylinders and heads on NOS STD 3 13/16 bore cases, Custom making, my own version of  Kennedy rocker boxes. Velva touch lifters, and all EVO style internal oiling, Zippers cam, ignition and Strociek roller rockers.
PURE POWER oilfilter filter, pingle shifted, clear primary BDL lock up clutch, Sputh cam cover, some hidden carbon fiber parts, and a very special starter setup!,
The front end is a +8" over 33.4mm.  I am Builing something really special for the wheels, but cant  give that up just yet though...

Things are moving forward and i should have a roller soon!
 
 






Keep it real: HARLEY-DAVIDSON


Restoring a bike can be done in different ways: a) Make it brand new with new parts (mostly made in China cause 47 year old NOS Harley-Davidson parts are hard to find and expensive. b) Use as many original parts you can restore and make them shiny or look like new again. Takes more time but I think it is way better and nicer than a "chinese new bike".
