You’d think this thing would be done by now but.. Nooo..! Just not happening. It is fun though, and quite a challenge since everything seems to go wrong but works out in the end. Biggest problem is the Bike just won’t start unless you warm it up with a torch. I can just see myself in the parking lot of say, Robins Donuts with my hot custom bike and have to get out the old blow torch just to get the bike to fire up. No, that just ain’t gonna happen. The bike has to start and that’s the topic of Gallery four when the Spring is here.
2011 July 26 to Aug 28, Making a Fiberglass Gas Tank and Mold
After I made the honeycomb on this month long project gas tank I began to wonder what they were. Look on most gas tanks and see where the honeycomb is.. Nope.. Just ain’t there. Soo just what was that thing? I began to realize that I really had no clue as to what the little hexagon bumps on the back of the gas tank represented or for that matter .. What the heck were they?
2011 Aug 28 to Sept 17, Finishing Mold and Laminating Gas Tank
A light show!! that’s what the bumps could be.. if only there was a light panel that looked like the bumps.. Well here we go again. That decision only meant that I would have to cast the bumps into a panel that was translucent, leave enough room under the panel for a light show in led’s, cut a recess that is under the panel and body it in making it fit precisely to the lid and then construct some sort of fastener for the door and also make the electric light show connect to switches and a battery.. Don’t ever try this at home! Well that’s it for this year. Next Spring or perhaps even sooner the motor will be taken out of the frame and both painted and customized. It’s Mid September so time to do the maintenance around the camp and garage. Luv You All, See You Soon!
