My BMW Bobber, part 45
CAD version here


This week we made the fendermounts for the BMW Bobber. The mounts are shaped like valves and have internal threads so the mounting bolts will not be visible. After machining the 4 mounts we used some welding rod as a bending template and bent all the mounts to match it. We drilled the frame all the way through so the mounts will be strong and because we could not fit the drill between the frame rails;-) The mounts are MIG welded on the outside of the frame and the MIG welds have been ground smooth. The insides will be TIG welded. During mockup we temporarily welded the mounts to the fender to hold it in place, the right side mounts are now finished, the left side we will do later this week.
