So this is the donor bike for the Grease Monkey build a show bike project. What we want to do is get a group of people together to design and build a (cheap) show bike. It's going to be a real group project where everyone gets a say in how it turns out. We want you to design and build as many of the parts as possible. No catalogue parts other than what we have lying around in the SLC workshop.
First design meeting is in Helensville on Sunday 12 April so dig out the crayons or trawl the internet for inspiration. Post your ideas on here and let's try and build something really cool..

Cool. Thanks Cam. Been a while since we've seen what you're building. How's life?

I hear that. I'm going to put a wood burner in my garage before winter starts. Might try and get at least one project finished this year Laughing

Not too much of a design discussion took place at the latest monthly meeting yesterday, the positive is you still have time to add your ideas.

With poop weather approaching, rather than spending a rainy Sunday with screaming cabin fever suffering kids and loved ones, why not drive (or ride) out to Helensville next month, enjoy a hot coffee and great company and lets jump start the Grease Monkeys Club project bike build.
With our own projects in our sheds at home, it will be a refreshing break to have a look at the GM bike, you may even get some ideas for your own build.

If otherwise corrected, I believe the next monthly meeting will be Sunday the 10th May .. for all those available.. see you there.

Coops

I know this thread is old by now but my two cents is I'd rather do the 450 Honda in the background simply because the Harley's have been around so long as things worth customising theres a big hostory of what has been done possibly affecting what could be done whereas the four fifty sits there wanting to almost stay representative of what it always was and therein is always a good opportunity to go completely somewhere else with it.

And those partially pressed up Honda frames are such ugly things when they are bare they almost scream to be chopped and channelled and lengthened etc in some way that makes that ugliness beautiful... just my tow cents worth!

Regards, Sean.

Unfortunately the Honda is long gone and it didn't belong to me. No one seemed very interested I actually building a club bike in the end so I think I'll just do something with it myself. Still happy to donate some space if y'all want to provide another project.
