Default My OP Roller

I Finally got her up and running the other day and thought I would share some pics.

Pic#1: As you can see I was going for the vintage look.

Pic#2: I had to get creative with my engine mounts. Those are 1 1/2" thick blocks of aluminum, bored out and then split and bolted back together around the frame and a piece of steel tube. It's very solid.

Pic#3: Also, I know that there is a lot of worry about front fenders falling off and locking up the front wheel. This is what I came up with. Those are cushion clamps and they are available in different sizes at almost any hardware store.

This bike isn't really done, they never are right? Over the next few months I plan to add an SBP expansion chamber, old-timey leather seat and tool bag, and possibly do something different with the handle bars. Also, I'm not that happy with the tank, so the first order of business is to build a new one and make it out of fiberglass this time. I'm much better at fiberglassing than welding.
