  1. Made these calf feeder trailer things yesterday. Not bad for one day's messing around.
  2. I did see a comment from someone that these have a groove for tie wire, but I think I may have used that groove as a cut guide when I trimmed the ends off.
  3. Yeah I'm just happy I found something to stick them down securely. The Inner sleeve is a shit greasy plastic that the superglue had zero adhesion to. It just flakes off. I think I'd have died of old age before these grips will need replacing from wear, knock on wood lolololol
  4. Installed some Oxford heated grips- the grips and controller/wiring is all quite nice but the included tube of superglue is a complete waste of time as both grips came loose before I'd left the drive. These are not like regular grips and have a hard plastic inner sleeve which does not shrink against the bars like usual. I pulled the grips off again, roughed up the bars and plastic sleeve, then glued in place with a thick smear of liquid nails. Completely the wrong application for that glue but it seems to stick like shit to anything and everything, and the grips sure don't feel like
  5. Got my cast off 1.5 weeks ago and have had bike out for half an hour since then. Have been pretty cautious as after 12 weeks restrained there was very poor muscle control and it felt super super fragile, but grip strength is improving very rapidly. We know this, but god damn shits amazing. In general I don't speed, but like acceleration and the sense of unlimited power- and this thing delivers for sure. Also very easy to see why these end up with huge kms on them compared to most 600-100cc superbikes-so easy to live with and manage. Big trip coming up and so of course
  6. Which part is bespoke? the input to the gauges or the gearbox output?
  7. Hey man. This does not answer your question, but I think SpeedHut sell adaptors to fit most gearboxes that convert mechanical gearbox output into pulses to suit their speedo's (and probably many others). Might be easy compared to factory stuff (Or exactly the same, no idea)
  8. Yeah so you buy a backing pad to fit either your standard grinder (has a nut on the back) OR a die grinder (has a little shaft on the back) Grinder one looks like this. Then you buy either sanding discs like this Or softer abrasive discs like this. The benefit is that there is no center boss to get in the way so the pad can be put flat on the surface. Very good and much better than flap discs for keeping anything flat.
  9. Create a frame to maintain alignment and add tail fins to ensure correct orientation. Then drop from hot air balloon
  10. hey old comment now but you said you wanted to get some flap discs. They are good, but for clean up after welding like that, Rolok discs are heaps better because they let you put a flat rotating face down onto the flat panel. Seen tons of bits fucked by people with flap discs when they remove/gouge the original steel! Cool project overall, looks like you are doing a bloody great job.
  11. Oh man, I had a catch up. Saw the rust and was like omg... And then super happy to see you fix it and get it all back together ASAP. Well done!
  12. Damn that is beautiful stuff! A few mistakes but who cares, I'd bet you can fix those bits with nobody noticing unless you pointed them out. Also, it's OK if the hole is too small. You can be upset when it's too big lol.
  13. Any imperfection in the sand is only going to make it look more authentic! bloody amazing, so now you have to transport it carefully to the foundry?
  14. I enjoy your videos, wish you put up more showing the final product. I need to see the guitar body and whatever those ply bits assemble to make
