Default Re: how i made an extended front motor mount

Very slick. I like it. Thanks for sharing.
Okay, now for the critisizing...Ya just gotta do sumpin' with that shiney motor. Maybe go to a gun shop and pick up some antiquing material for steel. They call it 'Browning' not the brand name but for what it does to gun metal. It stains it a nice old brown color so the metal looks old. It is applied with a brush or cloth, left a few minutes then wiped off. Something like wood stain but made for metal and is very durable. It lasts forever. That would give the aluminum engine a nice patina that would match the bike and look like it was supposed to have a motor. But...that's just my opinion. The bike is still an awsome build even with a shiney engine.
