|For the top motor mount the only missing
part was the bolt/screw holding it all together. We started with
an off-the-shelf sockethead capscrew, machined a ring to increase
the diameter of the head, welded that on and shaped it in such
a way that it accidentally resembled a German helmet. Hmmm. A
bronze ring was added, and more bronze rings were made to go under
the stainless steel nuts. Top motormount ready for now!
|Next project: the front motormount. As the holes in the frame
and engine were both pretty worn out we slightly increased the
diameter to get a good fit. We made a stainless nut that was completely
smooth on the outside with a square bit to keep it from rotating
in the frame. Obviously one of the frame holes also had to be
|Just like on the top motormount we modified
a stainless steel sockethead capscrew and after everything was
testfitted all the stainless bits were mirrorpolished. No wonder
it takes us so long to build a bike, haha....
