It has been awhile since I posted in this thread as I was busy racing all season, going to school and playing with my daughter.

At any rate we had a pretty good season, had a top speed of 185 mph and got two records at BUB.

Back to building........new bodywork sitting on my Buell.

Thanks to the help of several members here on LSR.com I got my tubing bender stand built.

My tubing bender needs a stand!!



Here is the bottom mounting location, the smaller piece bolts to the top of your mount. I am going to build my own stand as I don't see the need nor do I have the money to spend for a $120 stand from JD2.



A 3"x3" piece of square tube will be used to get to the height of 40"



Cutting the square tube, this takes awhile to cut but the benefits are a square cut.



Square cut



I bought this red paint marker a month or so ago for this project. What a difference as my marks do not disappear from heat like they do with permanent marker and the red shows up even when sparks are flying. Where have you been all of my life?? Great thing about the marker is it will mark on almost all surfaces where as the permanent marker will not.


Here is my 9 x 9 mounting plate and my 3 1/2 x 7 top plate. I went a 1/2 inch over on the top plate so I would have a 1/4 on each side for welding. Also not the cut-off wheels, both were new before I started. One of them got away from me and yanked the grinder out of my hand and onto the floor. Good thing I had my gloves, faceshield and safety boots on. That 1/4 steel is not joke.



Here is the idea, the bender will mount to the top small piece and the base plate will be secured to the concrete floor via red heads.



I still have holes to drill in both pieces, welding and painting. Its small progress on a big project.

I used a fender wahser to mark all four corners of the base plate so they would all be the same.






I then marked the mounting plate.


Drilled some small pilot holes.



Then drilled the holes to 1/2 inch



Then to 13/16ths for the 3/4" bolts. The finger is for referenece of how large the drill bit is.......had to drill really slow with that bit.









I then grinded all of the rust and any contaments off down to bare metal for welding purposes.



I then tacked the mounting and base plates into place.






Final welding....man am I rusty I haven't welded in over a year.



The almost (need anchor bolts) tubing bender stand.

Picked this set-up real cheap from a fellow club member and racer. This should help in the HP department!

After work today I stopped at my friend Randy's shop and he helped me start to build my upright to hold the head stock for the frame. We used a 3/8s end mill for the slots and a large holesaw for the 4 bigger holes.


It is not finished, but this is how it will stand. The larger holes are for access to the back side of the slots.


The upright is 3x3 and the small piece at the bottom is 3.5x3.5


The 3.5x 3.5 piece we be used to determine the head angle and will slide up and down on the upright when I am finished.



First I need to cut it in half so I have to right angles and then make a few more cuts and drill a few holes.

Scott,

The new Air Tech body looks great on the Buell!

The cudos should go to Kent he is the one who made the bodywork. However, the bodywork is not for the Buell.

This is the configuration the bike was raced in at BUB, completely naked.

What the bike looks like now.

Too many injectors for the turbo to go on the Buell. grin So you are going to turbo the busa and put that nice body work on it?? Sounds like you are real serious this year. Good luck and keep us posted. cheers

If you weld pins up the sides of the post you can hang the dies on them and they're handy when you need them and you don't take up shelf space. Make them long enough that you can hang all three pieces from one die set on each pin.
