Default Re: Something new and kinda sorta 100 years old looking

The steam bike has officially moved out of the basement. It did see its shadow but it's still staying where it is. It's getting too heavy to lug up and down the steps anyway.

It's a snug fit, but here are the power components mounted in the bigger piece of luggage. I had to make a plywood bottom for the box because all that was there was glorified cardboard. Both pieces of luggage are secured with screws through the support frame. I had to pony up for a deep cycle battery since there is no generator and it will have to be recharged frequently. The 100 psi pump in on the right and the solenoid that controls when water is sent to the boiler is next to it.

Next comes making the last two water lines and hooking up the electronics. Then I need to make a new steam feed line and mount the oiler. That should be about it.
