Workshop USA

Don't be gentle with a renthal, some years ago in Needles California we tried to make the renthal bike with the biggest wrench I ever saw, and slash hammer. It worked and we made it back to Las Vegas again.

Workshop Wednesday #4

Sprocket guard for the XL1100 is ready, Biltwell Mushman pegs installed and a new brakepedal as well. Grinded down the guard, drilled some speedholes to save some weight (I think 30 grams...) and nicer look. I really like the way it came out even if it was a lot of work.

Workshop Wednesday #3

Brakepedal for the 1100 Flattracker is ready. Stock brakepedal, grinded the big square meatcleaver off, drilled a 3/8" hole for the bolt into the Old School GT BMX 24T peg and some more grinding and cleaning.
Polished the whole ensilada and I'm very stoked how it came out. It matches the shifter now after years, now its time to make the Biltwell Mushman peg work on the right side, that's another Workshop Wednesday I guess.

Workshop Wednesday #2: Projects

                     These forklegs need a shave and will go in the 1967 Ironhead.

 This Sprocket cover is going to be much lighter and will go on the 1986 Flattracker

The homemade exhaust made of the Biltwell pipekit will be painted with special paint.

  Thinking of making a forkbridge for these forks, no ideas yet but it will be a long winter again.........

Workshop Wednesday #1 : new season started today.

Workshop Wednesday Season: Winter 2012/2013 Issue #1.

Well I started the new season with a bigger project as expected. The left Biltwell Mushman peg was mounted in an hour but the right hand side is a different story. The pegmount is mounted on the chaincover and that means you have to take the brakepump/exhaust/brakepedal off first and ofcourse one bolt of the exhaust going into the cylinder broke off so thats a nice way to start the new sessions. Riding days are over in Holland so not really in a hurry and have some time to do more modifications. Brakepedal will be the same as the shifter with a GT BMX old school threaded peg, some speedholes/cuttings for a nicer look.
