  1. Pretty cool, what year (roundabout?), do you know?
  2. I normally don't love that style fender but everything about this bike is in your face obnoxious, why not the fender too!!! I think it fits the style perfectly.
  3. Looks like a pissed off tractors little brother!!!
  4. I like everything about this build! School me on the fatboy front end, are they just a wide glide fork with tins or is there more to it?
  5. I can't answer the gear lube leakage part of your question but IIRC you don't want a 0 angle on a U-joint, they last longer with a few degree offset. Besides, once you put the weight of a passenger and rider on a stock bike, doesn't the U-joint angle change anyway?
  6. I want some of whatever he's smoking...besides pole.
  7. CO2 lets the weld penetrate more and is available at WallyWorld. (Paintball tanks) I run C25 myself as does almost everyone I know. Although I have considered setting my 110 Lincoln up with a two pound CO2 bottle strapped to it just for convenience. I always had good results with the mix gas, never tried the straight.
  8. Yes, .120" wall is perfect. You may need to turn custom stepped slugs to get a good fit between the two.
  9. He's using her hairdryer...she must not be coming back!!! If my OL caught me with her $$$ hairdryer she'd konk me over the head with it.
  10. +1
  11. Chicken wire? Not as fun as strippers, probably cheaper and definitely better for your marriage.
  12. That's the plan. though I need to get a new one. This one has some funky checking going on between the knobs. I like everything about this, including the stance and the knobby!!!
  13. I wonder what a clear bronze with no base coat would look like? Dusty dunno, would I have to use high temp on the two covers? kinda give me more options. I may hold off on these till the frame is painted just to see how the two look together. Try it on a spare or junk cover first. The 400 F to cure the powder coat shouldn't hurt a side cover. Dusty kkinda what im thinking a cover gets on clutch side is hot enough to not hold your hand on but wont burn ya on a quick touch, I wish id of got a temmp reading from a running bike, unfortunantly all the bikes are winterized now. Engine oil temps on an air cooled are never much more than 250* F, right? Side covers couldn't get hotter than that. What matters is the temp that will warp the side cover not what it runs at. I have had several powder coated with out damage but 400F is close to hot enough to warp them. If your oven runs 40 or 50 degrees hot you could warp them which is why I suggested testing on scrap first. Dusty My bad Dusty, I thought you were talking about the powder holding up to the temps the side cover reaches...
