Lar's just wondering what your plans are for the front fender. As you will get a lot of salt spray even when the salt is very dry. ......
There's also a concern about overheating with salt packed into the fins of the cylinder and cylinder head, especially with the direction they run.
I had a Model A pit car for year that never overheated until the radiator filled with salt at BV one year. Just something to think about.
Thanks Glen and Stan for pointing this out.
Initially I hadn't planed on putting one on.
I'd say that maybe on third, to one half, of the bike I saw at last years BUB
didn't have a front-fender....so ?!
Anyway I guess you're right, so I found this fender that used to sit on my BSA cafe-racer
..so I'll adapt that to my front forks.
Lar's, awsome build. Very impressive.
Thanks kindly Larry !...but it really isn't.
Compared to a lot of the stuff I see in this forum,
this is ever so insignificant.
I do have one thing bothering me though. I don't have a rule book handy but, are those exposed blower drive sprockets gonna pass tech? Since an exposed counter shaft sprocket would not pass, I'm wondering about the blower drives.
Thanks for pointing this out Larry !
I can not seam to find anything
in the AMA rule book on the subject.The Special Construction Class (that I run) -section doesn't mention anything about
belts, chains or chain-guards in general or blower belts in particular
The closest I can find is the this, in the Modified Frame Class
section:5.C. Chain/Belt GuardMinimum length of the belt guard is 1½ times the total span
and a minimum of 1/4" wider than the belt.
Primary cover is mandatory.
Belt/chain cover must extend from center of the primary to the
outer most edge of the rear sprocket.
Even though this is not for a blower belt/guard
I've used that as a guide-line, in that the guard
is (more than) ' 1/4" wider than the belt
(...and BTW; I'm doing a chain guard as well.)
Guess now would be a good time to consult Tech. Inspection
to make sure I'm doing this right.
A bit of progress here:
Doing the wiring
and doing the oil-lines by modifying the original lines to my bike
by cutting and soldering and bending etc.,
and experimenting with a different seat
Thanks all for your interest and for helping me out !!!
