Didn't ride or even start her up. Just a glamor shot on the first sunny day in a month!
The box turned out alright. Should be some metal suppliers locally. Then there's places like Grainger, they'll only sell in bulk. Manager at your home center might order what you need, paid in advance of course.On a more positive note, the winter boredom has led me to finally take a crack at working with some metal. Other than your typical home construction stuff (steel sheet rock studs, plumbing work, and storm door jams) I have really never had a need to. I wanted to start small (and cheap) so I decided on aluminum and brazing as my first go to replace the broken door on the bikes tool box. Surprisingly, this little project taught me plenty of do’s and don’ts. Now I have seen some amazing work from folks on the forum and I’m no where near that level of experience, but I’m happy how this turned out. Even if it looks like my first Shop class project!
Now I’m looking for a better place to get material, the big home improvement stores don’t carry enough and it took almost two weeks for the aluminum weld-on hinges to show up from eBay. If anybody has links to a good distributor please share.
Always enjoy seeing the Iron.
I made a coolant overflow tank out of an Arizona tea bottle, painted black. I did that because I converted my ACCT's to MCCT's and put in a long bolt that interfered with the stock coolant overflow tank.Always enjoy seeing the Iron.
Why did you relocate the overflow tank to the front of the rad?
And the VN900 doesn't have an axle spacer? Looks unusual seeing the bare axle space between the fork tube and the rim.
Ya, all hand shoveled too! I call it the sore back ridge!Did you make that snow pile? Damn! Had to chip two inches of ice to get my garage door open.
I wasn't able to scrape pegs in my driveway, but I'll get there!Chicken strip looking a little thin there!
