Anders, one of those full length mirrors like the ladies use, leaning against the wall, will allow you to look at yourself when you are on the bike.

Hey Anders, I also build/built bikes but not so much anymore.

That bobber is very nice.
The Trumps always look great and what I wouldn't do for that front drum!!!!!! grin
I love them.

Congrats on the win. It's never easy.

Don't try riding on a gravel road without a rear fender, Anders.  grin

Luckily I don┤t have many gravel roads around here, but I┤ve tried it and it is not too bad unless it┤s recently been raining...

That would work, but with the memory of a gold fish a photo is better. smiley

Anders;

Most off-road bike tires pick up small pieces of gravel in their coarse tread and then centrifugal force throws them off with some velocity. It feels like your backside is getting peppered  grin

The state I live in, Mudguards are required by law, and they are required to come down in a line 45░ thru the axle
The Police here will take a bike off the road for that sort of "dangerous" modification

Do dirt bikes come with an exemption Grumm ? , I've yet to see a "legal" dirt bike rear 'guard.
I got to edumakate a RTA inspector in '70 while getting a '42 HD thru rego, he made me plonk my butt on the seat as he checked the mudguard was within specs,,he would'nt have it that, being a rigid frame, sitting on the bike made buggerall difference  shocked

Back from the motor show, it was loads of fun but a bit tiring to stand up for two whole days, sleep little and drink a couple of beers each night.



I didn┤t take any pics during the time there was visitors, but it was very crowded from time to time. Many familiar faces dropped by and a whole bunch of new ones with interesting stories to tell, a very fun weekend indeed!



We didn┤t only bring jet vehicles, Olov brought his customized Ford Model-A 1930 and a 98cc motorbike that he overhauled when he was a school kid.



I had my Triumph with me and to my surprise won third prize in the motorcycle category, not bad at all considering all the fancy shiny harleys at the show.



My other friends Olle and Lasse had their tractorpullers with them, a Bison 470 with a Rolls Royce Meteor V12 and a 800kg minipuller with a severely turbocharged Mercedes diesel engine with 500-550hp.



Now it is time to stop playing around and start wiring the turbine bike up! smiley

Cheers!

That tractor must sing a sweet song when one of the guys has his foot in the throttle.  And didn't I see your jet bike in one of the shots?  Even unfinished -- it's cool. cheers cheers

Interesting, Grumm.  Now that I look I see it in the first photo.  The sighting I made the comment about -- was in the second shot, which evidently you missed.  Did you misplaceyour glasses? evil

Oh yes it is quite loud, two Holley Dominator 1250 carbs feeding it so it pulls like crazy with somewhere around 1000hp. smiley

Back from the motor exhibition with a bucket full of inspiration I cleaned out at least 50 kg of grinding dust, scrap metal and other bits and pieces to make plenty of room for the turbine bike, I nailed some stuff from the exhibition on the workshop wall as well to make it a bit cosier.



Time to get the bike on the road! I took the fairings off and disassembled the fork legs to fill them with the fork fluid I didn┤t remember to put in them during assembly, I also fitted the brakes.



Here is a scetch of the upcoming wiring, I will wire it temporarily and once I know that everything works the way I want it to I┤ll do it properly. Lots of time for such things after the summer has passed, now I just want to get the bike up and running.



Cheers!
