  • 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!

                      Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                      Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                      Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                      Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                      I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                      Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
