Iv'e been a bit bored at home so I thought I would start seeing what stuff I can find do build another bike on a budget ,so it's going to be a bit of a Jalopy
As you all know I love Ridged Bikes so Iv'e got another Kraft Tech Frame , Scored a 80 Cub EVO Engine and 5 speed at the right price to get me started and a pair of Sportster Wheels for FREE, Shinko do a new 19" Front Vintage Tyre and Iv'e been hanging to use one on something so this is it
Iv'e got plenty of crazy idears along the way to try out.,
Going to be interesting, I'll wait with anticipation for your next installment.
I had this Big old Tank on the shelf at work for years, I don't know were it came from or what it's called, It has Sportster mounts on it , I v'e never had much luck trying to sell it, So looks like I will just have to use it .
The Tyres are Shinko E270 Brian, Im tyring to get a real vintage look about the bike
cant wait to see it come together
Got Luke to Bend up some Bars for me last night
Just gave the whole engine a coat of Paint Stripper, Got to try something to get it back to a natural finish, after I get the old paint off I mite try some Mag Wheel Cleaner
when you use paint stripper to help it along wrap the motor in plastic like a shipping plastic restricting the air that gets to the stripper helps it do its job faster and better, hope that helps
wtching this one with interest
Got most of it off, I will hit it one more time
