Default Re: My project(s)

90% finished now. I finish the lid and mount it come daylight. Also need to setup some fenders on the inside, lay some caulk or sealant along the seams of the inside, and get a safety triangle (reflective red/orange triangle) for the back until I get my lighting built up.

Trailer is 33wx35Lx24h, plus height of frame underneath. I need to get some corner edging to cover the corners, since I had width panels cut just a touch too short... Like an idiot I was thinking the base dimensions..not base plus width of 2 sheets...duuuurrrrrrrrrrrr

I stained the outer sides of the sheetwood and top of the lid, I think it looks good. I'm thinking about how I want it all to look at the end. Thinking about taking the bike wheels and trailer wheels apart and getting the rims powdercoated silver, spokes coated black, and hubs coated silver. Bike and trailer frame will both be blue. Racks on the bike (yet to come) will be stripped and fresh coated black, as will the handlebars and stem. I think it will look sharp when it's all done. When I do all the electrical stuff for lights and whatnot I will take care to keep the wiring tight and clean and minimal, keep the bike looking as perfect as possible.

To start with, I'll use the frame mount gas tank that comes with the motor kit, but eventually I want to either find or make a tank to sit on the front rack. I will have a motorcycle battery on the rear rack in a tidy sheetmetal box (but will switch to a car battery in the trailer when I have that attached) for the lights and GPS. <sighs> Less than 2 weeks until I order my motor. Can't wait. Everything is getting there piece by piece.

Anywho, here's pics for you guys.

i'm freakin loony (inventory is always being added!)
