Looks good. Is that a '57 Ranchero? I want to see that build too!
Thanks sdxs2. Yeah,We seem to always have a garage rat for the winter around here.
I'm hoping to get away this weekend to work out my exhaust.Man! It's been too long since I worked on her.Got new clutch and throttle cables with a braided rear brake hose and carb floats in.Also went ahead and bought a front cam guide.I'll hopefully be tearing down to install it and reseal the topend soon.
Went to the shop and started on the exhaust.Although not perfect I think it'll workout good.Here are some pics.I'll wrap them from the flanges to under the battery box. Any comments or ideas welcomed. I was thinking of using a couple of clamps to secure the pipes like these.
Exhaust came out good! You going to paint or wrap them?
Looks nice Paul's gonu be jelles lol
Thanks guys.Yeah I'm going to wrap them. They are pretty close to the bottom of engine.
Ha Ha! I hope Paul's jealous. That guys work is very nice.
Hey Johnt3, I am very jealous of those pipes! I really like that flow you have there, well done my friend, fantastic work!
Loving the build thread too!!
Ha Ha! Thanks Paul. I wish we had a better bender at the shop but when their wrapped they will be fine.
Here are the red baron goggles.
very nice, looks great, really. you cleaned that thing up in an awesome way. BTW that seat w/ the back rest that was on there was about ridiculous.
Thanks xs650special. What!, Dang that seat was cool back in the day man.
Your bike is looking good mate, I do like those pipes
man...i like it just the way it is!wouldn't even paint it!
Love the goggles! Proper Biggles style!!! Get a white silk scarf and stick the wire in to complete the look
Ha Ha!! Thanks guys! It was either run them under or high and out.
I've got to paint it man... It's what I do for a living.
Yeah a white scarf that's what I need.
Well I got some turn signals for Christmas,really up in air as to where to mount them.I installed my new side mount tag/brake light and my original spot for the signals is now taken.I tried different locations, but didn't like them anywhere on the bike. I'm thinking about not running signals at all, but I'll have to check local regs first.
Here's a pic of the signals.
Checked online and it doesn't look like I'm required to have signals in Kansas.Unless I find something different or a location that will work I'll run without.
Hope to work on her this weekend.
Hi Johnt3 - looks like any motorcycle built after 1/1/73 needs to be equipped with electric turn signals:
How about these ones:
Well hell. I guess I'll look into mounting options again. Thanks Paul.
