The Speedbowl, part 2

 

Fred used brake calipers from a "kart" and integrated them into the fork legs for an extra clean look, the whole wheel will act as the brakedisc as the calipers squeeze 2 hardmetal discs that are mounted on the sides of the rims.

 
 

Fred made the battery compartment near the steering neck so it will be hidden inside the fueltanks. The battery in the pictures is ofcourse not the battery he will be using, imagine if one of the filler caps came loose... As you can see the fueltank is made out of less pieces than usual, Fred has invested in some new metalshaping tools like an English wheel, a stretcher and shrinker and a bead roller. On his older bikes he used just a welder and an angle grinder!
