CAD version of this
staring at the seatbase for a bit I decided to narrow the rear
a bit more. Aad did the aluminum welding, we added 2 hooks on
the front and a single screw on the back and then sent it off
to Marcel Miller
Upholstery. Within a week I had the upholstered seat back,
Marcel did a great job!
I did a little more cleaning up, grinding and smoothing of the
frame, unspoked the font wheel and dropped off a whole pile
of parts at the powdercoater. Next job will be preparing tank
and fender for paint.
and me added the recessed gascap, rib and rubbermounts to this
tank years ago, and El Cheapo did the pinstriping. Before the
new paint goes on there is one thing that needs fixing; the
tank has a flat area on the top around the gascap that causes
a sharp bend in the rib. My friend Ben at Ben's
Metalshaping SHOP is reshaping the top
of the tank so there will be no flat area anymore. To be continued!
