Radiator cover

So here is a link to the radiator cover that I'm building for the bike. All the welds will hopefully be hidden from sight if all goes well. Will sand blast and powder coat maybe a chrome color but haven't decided yet.

Thanks.. I thinks when its done it will look like the front end is chained on.. thinking of letting some just dangle down loose on the bottom part to help protect the starter from getting so dirty

By the looks of the starter and the filter, you must drive on dirt/gravel roads. Just be watchfull of all that crude gathering in the chains and clogging the radiator.

yes to the gravel/dirt roads. part of living in the country...that and exploring new roads. I usually spray down the bike once and a while or when I think it needs it. Just didn't do it this time until I get done doing some work to it. part of why I'm thinking of extending the chain down lower to help protect the oil filter and starter

I have mixed feeling about it my self. If I did do it.. each row would have an individual chain each. I just mocked something up to see what it would look like.. but that's the nice thing about mock ups they are not permanent but great visual aids...think I'll work on the sides before I make any final decision. But thanks for the opinion
