Just a quick up date of the last few days, a long weekend well spent.

Wires everywhere, have all the stainless and some alloy away for polishing, internal wired the bars and sunk in some buttons for a minimal look, will find a particular master cylinder to replace the HD one but until then will grind off the flange and tidy up what I have...

Enjoy the pics....

Those buttons look good Jon. Are you thinking of getting a smaller Speedo now? The one on my Shovel is tiny and it's electronic drice. Easy to hide.

Well there is a thought! Thanks for that Sara... have narrowed it right down now, def 70's old school look, it needs metal flake and green some pin and a hint of lace.....

I'm 6'2" and 135Kg anyone wants to argue about lace let me know.... lol!



Shocked

haven’t even got there yet as to who, just worked out what... and when, well that will be after a nasty paint job in the interim to get a cert, ride out the bugs and then get the flash one done once nothing falls off, rubs or is replaced... etc.

still on wiring duty, geeze it takes time soldering each wire, attaching connections, wondering if what you have done will work... ha-ha

I’m back out there now, finished work early today... cheers

Good idea with the paint. I'm going to start wiring the Ironhead on Sunday. Not looking forward to it. More fun setting things on fire with the Mig. Laughing

Where'd you get them from Jon? I cought a couple of hundred bucks worth of nuts and bolts from Fortress a month back. When I looked at them last week the shoulder part was too long to use for anything other than bolting very fat parts together. I need something that is threaded all the way up.

Both the bolt shop and anzor fasteners on the shore... some do have shoulders but I get some to fit and then cut them down to length...
