Love the light, but me think it should be down lower.
Yes ! It’s just temporary...nothing on this build is tightened up yet.
LOL! Kool beans................Curt
I consider all components on my builds as temporary...even when fastened down.
Lamp #2 is way better.
Having gone thru a lot of early twentieth century motorcycle photos. If they carry a head light it was almost always automotive sized like Velo's or MotoMagz #2.
Tom from Rubicon
Umm Moto. Why are your bars cut in half??
Lamp #2 for the win!
Yep #2 ,I will be transforming it into the light with visor in the photo. I will be attaching the little visor pictured below to mine and it should look pretty close.
Cuz ! Some vintage bars were 2 piece. A fellow made these replicate a vintage set of bars. But they were not exact so I was able to purchase.
Good thing is I can run some brake cables in with ease.
I like the last light you posted, does it have any markings on it? Name, patent numbers?
I this it is one that could be replicated, and using a 6 volt lantern style battery or a rechargeable battery pack with a standard 6 volt light would be sufficient, and look era correct. Look at the Rayovac Sportsman Steel Beam Lantern https://www.batteryjunction.com/ray...MIk67E1qGz4AIVhbrACh1hgAF7EAQYASABEgIvQvD_BwE
Keep the head, mount it on something smaller, have batter in another compartment.
The light that will get a visor is a Hawthorne. Light with visor I’m not sure on maker.
Yep that light battery set up is all you need.
Got a few more things done on the bike... my catch can and hose routed along with Exhaust. I’ll see what type of sound I get without a muffler.
I can ask when she gets home! Oh the bike...r you sure..lol. I could do a walk around before tear down for paint.
Wanna hear it pop'n and see some flames shoot'n out the stack!
Well when I start it I will video.. and with my engine skills there will be smoke and fire! Lol This is my first engine that I gutted and rebuilt with hi performance parts.So We might get a small explosion out of it too.Bike is in the basement so have to wait a bit .
Will the catch can drain as mounted?
My first breather routing was just down between the chain stays.
What could go wrong, right?
Tom from Rubicon
It will drain ! The question is... will the blow out of oil make it there?I normally would go up like I did then behind seat. So making it lower at the enshould be ok....?
Hey hey hey! Still messing with final details before paint .Im debating on a rear rack....I would like to hear what you guys and gals think on the rack..thanks
After looking at Dan's rear racks I bought steel to fabricate my own rear rack for my Flyer.
If you want critique? The lightening holes in the straps to the seat stays are not period correct. It's your bike, do what suits you and Devil take the rest. The $$$ it takes to produce these machines, or is this one for sale too? .
