Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I made some new tank mounts to hold the tank to the two rails of the frame. Used a new material that is very easy to work with and relieved the harmonics associated with a steel tank. This might be a good way to some how mount the motor to the frame. I may try this stuff in the future for a MM.

U.S. Plastic Corp. carries an excellent selection of UHMW sheet, UHMW rod and UHMW shapes. UHMW is ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) polyethylene bar that has exceptionally high abrasion and impact resistance properties. It will outwear all other materials, including metals, nylons, urethanes and fluoroplastics. In corrosion resistance, it has the same qualities of other polyethylene plastics. UHMW resists wear, friction and corrosion and thus it cuts maintenance costs, energy consumption and extends equipment life. Applications for UHMW materials include guide rails, wear plates, rollers, conveyor augers, bin and hopper lines, chutes, bearings, bushings and gears.
