Well kids, I made Willie work late today and he built my speedometer bracket. The pics kind of tell the story..If you follow the steps there is a couple of things that are different. There are three holes that overlap. They were all done with a drill. The big center hole was done with a step drill. If you don't have any of these you need to add a couple to your tool box. He bent the bracket in the vise just by beating it with a hammer. If you look close you can see the vise marks on the bracket. Thats ok cause when we tear the bike down before paint and final assembly, we'll clean all that up. In the last pic it looks like the bracket is crooked but its not it's the way the top triple tree was made. If you back up one pic you'll see it.This type of bracket can be used for a tach, speedo, rear view mirror, shift light, etc. Willie said if you guys have any tips or tricks, chime in any time you like. Or if you have any requests let him know.

Happy motoring...

Frog pirate from Washington needed a battery hold down built. He's building a B-last. He's posting on "Yet another blast!Project  600cc " under the build diaries. He posted a "blueprint" Hope all his measurements are right. I just decided to build it for brackets fabrication and fun stuff. So here goes.
I didn't have a big enough scrap so I welded two scraps together. I drew out the pattern according to Frog pirates measurements -rough cut it out - cleaned up the weld - and went back and scribed it out accurately - cut it all out - made all the bends - I made all the bends on the brake except the small tab - I cut three sides out with a small cutoff wheel - I clamped it to the workbench and bent the tab over with a flat chisel and hammer - The rest of the bends I did on a brake but it could have all been done over the edge of the workbench with a hammer and clamp - I'm going to send it to Frog pirate on Monday - so toward the end of the week we'll find out if it fits - I didn't beautify the piece I figured I would let Frog pirate do that his self - heres the pics

Looks great Willie, I can't wait to try it on the bike! I'll post pictures in my build diary of it in place.

Not a problem Phil   Maybe I can build you some saw blades too
 cool

By the way, did you get bi-metal or tri-metal blades. Whoever you get your blades from should have a blade speed chart for different materials. And the soap you should use,which I found was the best, is irish spring or a candle(wax).

Willie
I ordered the bimetal bade material,could barely afford that,it is $253.00 from enco,I couldnt find trimetal,just as well,prob couldnt fit in my budget,I ordered 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch so thats a fair chunk for me.I will let you know how it works. By the way,I have a tube that looks like a grease cartridge but it is really lube for metal blades,drills,etc. Its like a stick of wax-like stuff,it works well,but probably not any better than irish spring, and it Dodge sure doesnt smell as good  grin Oh well no women in my shop to impress. Thanks for considering the trans thing.
                                    Thanks again,Phil.

Today we built a set of headers. We used two U bends and about 4 feet of straight pipe. We fabricated a wedge to shape the end of the pipe. You just drive it in with a hammer. Here are the pics.

The next pics are of the tubes welded and cleaned up and a tool made to flare the collector to fit the pipes. The tool was made out of some scrap tubing and its pounded into the tube to form the collector. The last pic is the collector formed.

The last three pics are of the collector on the pipes and everything all welded up and ground down. The headers sand blasted with a heat shield that I found from a road king muffler. The project took about 4 hours including making the piece to form the pipe and making the piece to form the collector. The material was about 10.00 for the straight pieces,16.00 for the U bends and the customer supplied the flange and the collector was actually an old harley muffler.
