  • Wip motorcycle

    I managed to get some work done on my new motorcycle. It will be some what larger then my previous ones, 14" long, which is about 25% larger then my other ones. I've included some photos to show the difference in size, as well some construction photos, showing some of the parts required, although there is a lot of them to make yet.
    I've also included a fixture that I made to fabricate the spoked wheels.
    This has turned out to be a bit slow in making progress, as it is a new design, with hopefully more detail than before.
    I'll post more pictures as things move along.
    I also have a new road grader under construction, that I will try to post pictures of soon.

          Excellent, love the work. Like the wheel jig too.

          I was into bikes for many years till my artritis in my spine ended my days in the saddle, so realy like your bike. Good job.

            Many thanks

            Many thanks to everyone who commented on my work the last few months.
            I have taken some time to check out other people's sites that are posted here, and the work and talent are amazing. Lots of ideas, if I ever get some free time.

            Thanks again

                Great work, Nick,
                Hopefully the larger size also makes the work a little less tedious.
                That's a win/win situation!

                      Celtic knot-shamrock cross
                      by Ennobee
                      My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                      Hi Jim.
                      glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                      Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

                      by jim_mex
                      I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
