The finish on that guy's bikes is brilliant. I wish I had that much skill and patience.

Last night i got some new gears. mean.

baffle. now my bikes runs so awesome. we love back pressure.


Also brett had some rad 2" seat springs, i spent about an hour trying to work out how to

A: Get the bolt inside the spring
B: Get the bolt in the hole
C: Get a spanner in there enough to tighten it.

MISSION

i thought and thought. i ended up cutting a slot in the head of a smaller bolt so i could weasel it in side the spring, and then play a game of hoops trying to throw a washer over the bolt when its inside small spring. what a cunt. needless to say it screwed straight in.

beats a wedge and 3 hours aye brett cheers




seat springs are so much nicer. nice and low. we like low.

k thanks

LOW is GOOD.
glad to hear it goes better with the back pressure
those 2 inch springs look the part
so you got them on with no swearing? there's a whole thread on the Sportster forum with people moaning about how hard they are to put on because of the tight coils in the springs ! haha. they look sweet, & i haven't seen a lotta 2 inch springs around over here so it's good to have something different. AND LOW.

Hey Doug do ya like that brass plated tail light? i think he's taken a 1936-1950 Triumph one & brass plated the shell. I've got a few of those sitting here & have thought about getting one done.
