    Thats just a zip tie holding it in place currently. The tab on the caliper will mount to the lower tube once i get the wheel spacers and all sorted

    So, started to fab my own mids. Im using the rear engine mount bolts as the base. Started by tacking up a quick little jig to bend some 7/8" steel round stock

    kr
    r


    All bent up...



    Had to pull the engine back out to level the case castings between the engine mount holes, whipped up this little bracket and tacked it all up



    The round stock is 7/8", so i ordered some 1" ID, 1 1/4" OD tubing and some flanged bronze bushings to make my pivots for the clutch and brake




    Took some 7/8" ID, 1 1/4" OD tube to use as stops, tacked those in.....



    Controls....



    And another piece of 7/8" ID after that.....




    You can see that i flattened both sides of the remaining round bar sticking out so the pegs would slide over nicely. I discovered how much i need a mill hahah, did all this with a cutoff wheel and other misc tools. Took a while to say the least.

    This is how the pegs will sit, theyre brass CHEAT DEATH pegs from chopper dave. Pretty rad pieces. The plan is to weld tabs onto the outer "spacer" piece of tubing that will fit into the gaps between the peg, and the flattened sides of the round bar, then run a bolt through everything. This will hold the peg in place and also keep the controls all tight together



    r


    Thats where im at right now, didnt have any 10 ga to make the tabs so ill have to button them up next wekend. Should have the belt drive and clutch next weekend along with a few other parts. Once thats all on i can get a chain, get the rear wheel position, knock out fender mounts/sissy bar, do the rear brake and get alot of things buttoned up. Slowly pluggin away on the weekends

    Very nice craftsmanship..I like that the peg position is not above the primary super high.... that seems to be all the rage these days?

    Nvm, looked past some info on the foot peg mount clearance. Wouldn’t it have been easier to just take a little less of the mount instead of do this and grind down, then weld, etc, etc

    you're building a fine looking scooter, you should be very proud of your work. Got any idea what color or have you already told that?

    Thanks guys

    Brooklynbomber im confused by what you mean. If your talking about grinding down the rear of the engine case, it wasnt to lower the position of the controls. The castings were just crooked so i had to grind them level so the bracket would sit flush and level

    As far as paint goes, frame and some other odds n ends are just getting black powder coat. The tank, rear fender and oil bag are gonna get the full 60’s treatment. Im thinking a panel style job in teal metalflake with black “borders” seperating the panels. Gonna spray it myself and do some leafing n striping over top as well

    You can see how the mids go together. The tabs are welded to the outer "spacer" piece and slide between the pegs and the main bar. Then a bolt runs through the whole assembly which keeps the pivots for the foot controls tight and in place. Still need to metal finish these at some point




    Bent up some simple arms for the clutch and brake outta round stock




    Welded up, again, gonna metal finish when i disasemble these



    The rear fender is a 4 3/4" Stingray from lowbrow. I took a 1/2" off either side for tire clearance. As you can see it didnt really narrow the fender at all, just removed some of the rolled over lip the fender had




    Didnt take many progress pics, but this was the finished jig that i bent the sissy bar in



    Wanted to keep it real skinny, i think it turned out rad. I just got an oxy torch a few weeks back so im a total noob with it but im stoked on the sissy. Threw a little pullback bend on the top as well





    The lower mounts are just tacked for now, uppers arent even tacked yet. I was waiting on rear spacers and some other parts to come before i welded anything up


    [

    Couple artsy shots....




    r

    I also have a weldable ripple tail light from prism on the way, so that will tie in with the sissy bar somehow. I also polished up this brass shift knob that my dad gave me for a christmas gift. He actually bought it from an antique shop when we were up at the FUEL CLEVELAND show, it was right next door. Got it pretty cheap. Im stoked on it, should match the brass details nicely. Its currently off getting engraved, should turn out sweet

    Wide handlebars, skinny sissy bar is sweet.
    This appears to be one of those builds that young and old can appreciate.

    Sorry my question was vague, just meant to ask why you ground down so much area on your control mount and then welded a spacer back in there. Controls look AMAAZING though. Whole bike is spot on and envious of your skills.
