G, Don't you live in south Texas? grin

To quote Tom Evans when someone (who's name might have been Bill) asked if I was from Arkansas.  "heck no, he's from way further south than that"
Which was good because I had no idea where Arkansas was

I´ve been busy with other stuff this week but now I have four days for myself since my family is away visiting my mother-in-law, expect daily updates this weekend in other words! Smiley



My plan for tonight was to make the footpegs, adjustable ones preferably so I can find a decent riding position.



This pin will lock the footpegs in place so they won´t rotate or move sideways, don´t want them to fall out at >200km/h...



With that sorted I started working on the seat, earlier this week I cut out a rough template which I now transfered to a sheet of aluminum.



The aluminum sheet got a 90° radius so that I can have something to rest my behind against.



Hmm, this doesen´t look cosy at all. What if I cut some material away?



Now we are getting somewhere! I started making the rear mount for the seat which is secured with the same bolts that hold the battery box.



I could have welded the mount tonight if this familiar sight hadn´t met me when I looked at the argon regulator....



No biggie, I´ll fill the argon bottle after work tomorrow and get back at it.

Cheers!

Thanks! smiley

I had a bad feeling this morning so I went to the shed before going to work and test fitted the engine, and just like I suspected the inter turbine section hit the footpeg. No big deal though, I rebuilt them after work and it turned out like this.



I had to remove the position furthest back but it feels perfectly ok the way they are now, switching them upside down makes them fit the front position as you can see.



With that hiccup taken care of I continued with the seat now that I had a full bottle of Argon again, I welded the rear mount and added a central support plate so it won´t flex and eventually crack the welds.



Finding the right profile for the back of the seat required some *cough* advanced 3D rendering. grin



With the radius cut out I made an edge on the slip rollers where the rear fairing will start.



Welded.



As you can see I have made some ergonomical alterations to the seat (bashed it a few times with a rubber hammer) so now it is very comfortable to sit on, a 10mm thick sheet of foam used for race track bike seats arrived today so the pair of nuts on the front mount won´t rub against my own pair. shocked



Another angle, everything seems to fit like it should so I am satisfied. I have used the 100cm scale to get a feeling on how to profile the rear fairing and if I can make it the way I want it will look pretty sweet.



Cheers!

I haven´t decided whether I should try to make the rear fairing from aluminum sheet or glass fiber, but I´ll probably end up making a styrofoam plug and cast a glass fiber fairing since sheet metal working at this scale won´t be easy without an english wheel and a can full of experience.



The frame is sanded down and ready for being taken to the painter tomorrow! Another mile stone for this project!  cheesy

Cheers!
