"When I run with spiked tires I`ll have a metal fender to keep the spikes from coming lose and opening up a couple of new holes in my body...

Methinks you already have some loose screws! grin

Love the updates, thanks. You are really progressing daily.

Thank you Glen!

Things are coming together nicely so far and with the bike show two weeks from now out of the way I will seize all effort on the rear fender to get the bike ready for a road test, I have all winter to get the fairings and other stuff done so while the roads are bare I will try to get as much seat time as possible out of it.

Anders, do not forget to put on your chain guard.  The various sanctioning organizations have different rules.  It is not hard to make a guard that is legal in all. - Bo

I just checked the 2014 SCTA rule book that Edstuga-Anders (http://www.edstugaanders.blogspot.se/) very kindly sent me, and I think I┤ll make one out of aluminum and bolt it to the gearbox and the rear fender mount.

You made an important point Bo that I have to make the bike meet regulations for all organizations so I can race at all events without having to modify the bike, I┤ll keep that in mind during the construction of the fairings.

Cheers!

Tonight I made the mounting brackets for the front fender, feels sturdy so it┤ll do.

Thanks, now if I can only trim the fairings a bit so the sides follow the front fender curve it will look even better I think... smiley

I removed some stuff from the triple tree last night, earlier the ignition lock holder blocked the sight of the exhaust temp gauge.

Are there any regulations against modifying the triple tree? I need to drill a couple of small holes through the one in the pic above to secure a small dashboard with some switches and indication lights, will the tech inspection have any objections do you think?

I cannot see that a pair of 6mm holes would have any effect of the structural integrity, but if the inspector thinks so I am in trouble.

It's hard to tell from the angle of this photo, but does the leading edge of the front fender extend below the height of the axle? If so, you'll need to trim it for the SCTA.

Looks great Anders Smiley

I┤ve only cut it to a rough shape so far, I think I need to trim it some to be on the safe side.

I┤ve had a hard time deciding what to do with the side panels on the front fairing, they are badly secured to they will be all over the place once the bike starts gaining speed and frankly they look like crap so something radical had to be done.



The idea was to make them follow the lines of the front fender and the vertical frame tubes, with a pair of detachable side panels that cover the entire sides of the bike I will have easy access to the engine without having to remove the entire front fairing.



It turned out pretty ok in my opinion, the final shaping will be done before I paint it so until then this will do.



A quick look at the front shows that the bike will have a very small frontal area, and I should be able to tuck my knees in far enough to stay out of the wind I think. Not easy to judge when you are alone in the workshop. smiley
