Beautiful bike and your craftmanship is really first class. SCTA rule on the rear fender in special construction is minimum to the vertical centerline of the rear axle, maximum to the rear edge of the rear tire.

Just looked at AMA/ Bub fender rules. There are two parts, the first is what you quoted, The second, next page, is what I said, SCTA rules. So you can take your rear fender to the rear edge of the rear tire for Bub and SCTA,

Thank you
B.R. , Larry, Lynda, Gary, Gary C. and Willie
for your kind words and info provided !

  Fred
Fred, you're right !
I'm dumb;
I do have the BUB 2010 rule-book here in the workshop,
but by mistake the rule-book I've been looking in, on this subject,
is the 2008edition (gotta throw that away)

The 2008 book says:
"...generic replacement type fenders may be substituted and may not extend beyond the
centerline of...rear axle
Elongated seat may act as rear fender and is subject to scrutineering
..."

( and my far from perfect command of the finer points of the English language
didn't stretch to comprehending the "generic replacement"-thing.

The 2010 book , as you correctly point out, clarifies and elaborates on this point:

"...an elongated seat may act as rear fender. Rear fender/seat section
shall not extend beyond the rear edge of the rear tire, and shall not
be lower than the top rim of the rear wheel
..."

SO; if I get it right this time.
Generic fender can not extend the center-line of the axle.
An "elongated seat" / "rear fender/seat section" can stretch to, but not extend, rear edge of rear tire.

...and I could therefore extend my seat"cowl" like this
IF, and only IF, my my set-up would be considered a "elongated seat" / "rear fender/seat section"

( If so; I would be looking into an alternative use of material for the extension.
Cardboard is incredible hard to weld  .-)

On the S.C.T.A number plate rule,
I was afraid there wouldn't be enough space for it
if it is to be totally visible seen from the side.

But there IS...just.

Mocked-up S.C.T.A sized plate:

Lars you won't be stuck for a crew.   I'm planning on being there and I can chase you.  I ,hopefully, will for the first time have an "actual" crew there so we will take care of you.  Tick that off you list.

Bill
Wow, I've only been here for a while, and I nearly wrote I'm amazed at how helpful everyone is, but I'm not, as this happens throughout the world of petrolheads, it's brilliant! Lars, your bike is beautiful, when can we get together and do a feature on it? And being cheeky, can I borrow your old 1998 rule book to give me some guidelines, as I'm about to start work on my chassis. I'll send it back. I'm taking my Indian over in 2012.

Been absent for a while as I've been working like a mad-man.
( Gotta make money for this silly endeavour, don't I !? ),
but a bit of progress has been made , so just to let you know that I haven't gone AWOL
here's a short update:

Took my forks out to my friend again



..as I realized that we had ...mumble mumble...made one of the fork tubes...mumble..hark hark..
shorter than the other.
... oooups


...and the triple-tree stem (?) on the Ceriani forks was modified to be adapted to the frame



.. from left: a thick 'washer' was made
.. a adaptor-'bushing' was made , then heated and mounted on the stem
.. stem cut in two, shortened , hole made in each of two pieces, rod inserted,
TIG welded
.. yet another 'bushing' made, heated, mounted and TIG welded on
.. the assembly put in the lathe and the (slightly outer diameter over-sized ) bushings taken down to size to fit new bearings
( doing it at this point securing that the bushings would be perfectly in line )



Stem cooled down,  ( lower bearing in the oven )




previously I had fixed the upper triple tree,
painting it with wrinkle-finish pain.
Weird stuff: here it is right after applying it



..but one never know what the finished result will look like
as the wrinkles develops over several hours.
First try didn't look too good so I removed the paint and re-did it



..now that's more like it. After air-drying it for 24 hours I baked it in the oven
Donno why, but it's a finish I really do like.

As I had to modify the instrument panel for the new fork assembly,
I did the same thing with that.

SO: front ready for assembly:



...and now that the spray can was out, I did the top of the frame



...and as I was at this point intoxicated silly by the fumes,
I went a bit nuts, and sprayed the blower mounting-thingy as well



We also made a new and considerably thicker axle for the rear wheel as I was somehow uncomfortable
with the very thin Indian-reproduction axle that came with the wheel.
Looked too weak for my likening.
Maybe I'm being hysterical BUT my priorities goes like this
..safety !!!
..reliability
..speed
and of cause having one hell of a good time !
That of cause meant new spacers and new inner 'adaptors' for the rear wheel assembly.
Photos tomorrow when my friend Jakob drops by,
as he has made them at home.


Can you guess what these alu-thingies , found on the scrap-yard,
will be used for ?



First right answer will recieve an INDIAN SALT CRACKER BONNEVILLE RACE CREW T-shirt.




Have a brilliant week-end ya'all !!!
