I paint bikes for Jesse, In fact, I painted that one for the S&S tour. He has the oil tank split up. Part gas, part oil. Alot of times he will also put some fluids in the fender.

Here's my 93 FXR al chopped up. Obviously the paint is a bit overboard as I am a painter. It was and still is a great mobile billboard.:funny: Rides great. Quick dump in the weeds with the airbags.

Re: Motorcycle Thread
 
ooh ooh ooh! I can play! :hello:

He's my CB750 frame. NOS rigid frame made in the 70's by Tom McMullen's (Magazine publisher extraordinaire) "AEE" company. I scored it for FREE!

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/...a/ef980b4b.jpg

The details about it...I was living above Evolution Tattoo in Santa Rosa at the time, I rented the upstairs of the building. I got together with those guys all the time and we'd all wrench on our projects. So one day I was coming home with a chopper magazine and Mike asks me "Hey, Cameron...Are you looking into building a chop"

"Yeah, why?"

"Well, I have a chopper frame if you're interested. I was gonna build one, but the Nova Gasser is taking up too much time and money"

"What's it a frame for"

"It's for some sort of Harley, but none of the Harley guys I've asked can tell me exactly which motor it takes"

So I check out the frame.

"Dude, That's no Harley frame...That's a Honda CB750 frame!"

"Honda? No fk'n WAY man...That's for a CHOPPER!"

"Yeah, a HONDA chopper...People used to chop Honda 750's all the time back in the day...They're making a comeback. I'll bet you a free sleeve!...If I am right, you design and tattoo a sleeve of my choice. If I am wrong, you can give me a whole sleeve of YOUR choice."

"How about if you're right and it's for a fk'n HONDA you can have the frame if you want it?"

So I pointed out the frame mounts in my Clymer manual for CB750's, then I showed him some ads for rigid frames, both big twin and sporty in The Horse.

"Wow...You're right...I guess that IS a Honda frame! You want it?"

"Hell yes I do!"

Plans are simple and traditional. 16 on the back, 21 on a girder fork up front. Sporty tank. Trailer fender. Apes. Solo seat. Drag pipes.

Paint will either be some bass boat flake monster or I'll do it red with black stripes like some of Eddie Van Halen's guitars.

since I won't be riding with him at all (personal thing) he's gonna change the seat and longer back handles. and is planning on changing fenders, with a frenched '57 chevytail lite in rear .
but he says, no, no cafe racer, just more comfy for his long leggs to get that 40+mpg to and from work :grin:

Re: Motorcycle Thread
 
doing some mods to that 750 up there. have made a custom seat for it, tank will hae to stay as is, for now, and have switched out the dual pipes to a single 4 to one pipe from a 900. But I have a problem, I am also swithing the 900 handle bars to this . I have been searching for a color coded wiring diagram, , have one for the 750, need one for the 900 so I can match the wires and get this thing running.
Anybody by chance have one they can scan and send me or a site to get one.
Thanks all~

blacktruck September 2nd, 2006 07:49 PM

Re: Motorcycle Thread
 
tried to scan this as big as I could....
not even a cb750 but its a diag. for a cb550(72-78)the controls looked the same on all of them that I ever saw
hope it helps

Hotrodpez September 3rd, 2006 02:05 AM

Re: Motorcycle Thread
 
you scanned it at too high of a resolution, so when photobucket resized it it it had to be super small to make the memory size right. best bet to keep clarity would be to e-mail it as an attachment.

purplemyth September 3rd, 2006 06:10 AM

Re: Motorcycle Thread
 
thanks blacktruck~ but he needs one for a cb900 bike. the colors on the wires on the 900 handles don't match the 750. The 750 has about as much of a ratsnest in wire behind the headlight as an old bug does.
He's got the next two days off, so guess he can trace wire by wire and figure it out~
thanks for the scan though

Hey... I never put up an "after" photo of my 750... I suppose everyone here is sick of seeing it on this thread, but since my Ghia is out of sight, out of mind, bikes are all I"ve got... Anywhos, for the last time here, a "before" pic:

Well, yesterday on my way home from work I saw all hopes of me getting a motorcycle laying in the middle of the road.
There were 2 cop cars, a fire truck, and a flat bed in the middle of the road. Right behind them was a motorcycle. It didn't really faze me much but when I got home, my wife told me she doesn't want me getting one. I asked hey why and she told me about the accedent. Apparantly it happened just before she got there and the guy was still under the bike shaking like he was going into convulsions. It really freaked her out.
Welp, at least I can still look at them.

yup, sold off my bikes when the first was born and got me a vw. I just wasnt having fun anymore. Too afraid of getting hurt. when they grow up I'm going to get a sport touring bike and take a trip across country.

Turbo Punk September 8th, 2006 05:34 PM

Re: Motorcycle Thread
 
But let's be real.... It will NEVER happen to me!









As it reads on the headstone.:hmm:



It was kind of just a pipe dream anyways. The wife had already given me the ok a couple months ago to buy a used one in 2008 (gotta pay off some bills first). I was even talking to a friend of mine about helping him build one from a kit.
I had one in college and it was a blast. That was down in Hammond, La. and there was no where near the traffic there is here in western Ma.
Still would love to hit Rt.5 in Vermont with a few of my friends though.

Oh well, I'll have to get back to building the volksrod. Maybe this was a blessing in disguise (for me, not the guy on the bike yesterday:sad: )

i'm working on this one. It's a '67 Yamaha YDS3. I cut and lowered the frame and the tank is from an early 70's Harley rapido (shitty moped) and the rear fender was made from a '34 spare tire cover. I'm still working on it.

Not sue what he got from it, was asking $1800. lowest he'd go was $1500, either way~
$ from it goes into the bay, new t4 parts!

How about some trikes that are VW powered :dancing:
a turbo trike owned by my dads friend, it has a 1835 with a turbo as you can see, it also weighs 1045lbs an its basically a rat-trike.Hes been building them for 30 years.
http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/7...strike2ud2.jpg
This is my dads, it has a 1600cc in it with a bus tranny.
http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/4...oftrikenz1.jpg
http://img224.imageshack.us/img224/6...ikepic4ht0.jpg
Both trikes were hand made with fiberglass an bent pipes. The frames are angle iron. My dads isnt fast but 75hp in something that weighs 1600lbs with him on it isnt really slow. But my dads friends trike has a built up tranny an motor with a turbo, it is fast. He wont take it to the track because it would tach out before it would finish the 1/4 mile, but the 1/8 it would be quick I think. Were guessing it has some where round 200hp or more.

Did anyone see biker buildoff last night with the "Experimental" bike? I thought it was too cool. I don't ride and being a physical therapist and seeing countless patients involved in accidents plus having a family, I would never ride one. However, I sure wouldn't mind building one. This one was based on a dirt bike. Sorry for the poor grammar but I just got through watching it on my Tivo and am excited.

I finally talked my dad into letting me post a pic of his trike that hes building. This kicks ass. Every part is hand made even the springer front end. The rear end is out of a s10 pickup it has been narrowed. It will be powered by a 850 suzuki shaft drive. Its has a air ride off a cadilac using an air bag from a semi truck cab. Like I said he made everything even the tank, handlebars the works. As he gets father along Ill post updated pics.

Here are a few pictures of 2 of our bikes. The flat black one is a 2005 BMW Rockster with stock paint and the blue and white one is a 2003 BMW R1100S Boxer Cup with 103 rear wheel HP. It was built as a production race bike and this one is #2 of 200.

I really like that. Looks bad ass and comfy as hell at the same time :thumbsup:.
Some spoke wheels, white wall tires and some subtle striping would really finish it off for me.

I have a stock 73 triumph tiger 750 with all the options,...10 bolt head studs,front disc, and 5 speed,.Long seat with sissy bar(I removed that) and blue with white scollop.A beautiful bike.I haven't riden it in almost 8 years.4 kids and a wife and they all need daddy so I parked it after I saw someone see me 15 yards away and pulled out anyway.I also have a Zundolf or something like that (basket for real) taken to the frame and put in a box.It was cheap though.Trispeed your bike looks great.I'll try to get pics later.

She's nothing hot, but my KZ550 on Easter morning.

http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s...ike/car003.jpg

Later Easter day...since it is too frigging cold to work on the VW or anything else outside. I started stripping it down for paint and depolish. I was gonna cafe-rat it, but my physical size is too little to balance comfortably with clip-ons on it, so back to the original plan....rat Asiancruiser.

I had some fun with Jap and American bikes lately...

This one started as a '80 Yamaha SR-250
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...e/MVC-748F.jpg
and became known as "ROAD RAGE" half way through the project-
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...e/MVC-254F.jpg
(sold before finishing)

This '05 Lifan 250cc V-Twin was a fun little 3 day transformation, from this-
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...r/MVC-018F.jpg
to this -
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...r/MVC-344F.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...r/MVC-345F.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...r/MVC-349F.jpg

Then the '78 Anniversary idition XLH-1000 taken to 1250cc and done my way once again. From this-
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...ject/00032.jpg
to this over the winter-
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...s/MVC-440F.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...s/MVC-888F.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...s/MVC-905F.jpg

And the Mini Fireman Bike, 12hp Tecumse electric start and fire truck siren!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...e/MVC-586F.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...e/MVC-584F.jpg
was placed on display with the real bike at Biketoberfest at the request of the Teutel's -
