Anonymous asked: I'm in the design phase of my own project, and I'm wondering about how you secure the tubes of the frame. Welds or brazes? And if you braze do you use the traditional lugs?
All of my previous builds I have mig welded all the joints. However for my next build I will be trying something a little different.
I finally broke down ordered a Mikuni carb for the 350 Racer project, and I just got it running tonight. Unfortunately it was too dark to capture a good video but I did get a decent audio clip and few flame pops from the exhaust.
Please enjoy the sweet sound of my 350 Racer. My neighbors love me!
Here is a photo of the bike.
Thanks to everyone who has followed me and supported me with all my artistic endeavors. I hope all of you find something in my work that inspires you to take chances and motivates you to peruse whatever it is you are passionate about.
New project in the planning stages, and here is a sneak peek of the initial sketch.
I have been taking break from bike building over the summer, but with the weather getting cold and cabin fever already starting to kick in I’m getting the urge to build again.
The plan for this build is to start with the homely Suzuki in figure. A and turn it in to figure. B, a 100% street legal modern day board track racer. Stay tuned over the coming months to see how this all comes together.
Anonymous asked: Do you have any bikes available for sale? I'm wanting to purchase one for our Grand Opening of our antique store, "the Brass Monkey". In between riding it to work, it would be the center piece of the store. If you don't, do you know where I could get one? We open December 2 2013. 336-549-0219
Sorry no bikes for sale at the moment. I would like to sell my current build once I get it running and tested but that probably wont be until spring. If you do a google search for board track racer replica you should be able to find a few people who are doing similar things as me. However I doubt anyone would be able to have one of these bikes done by Dec. 2, these bikes take awhile to build.
Thanks for your question and good luck.
Anonymous asked: What do you do for clutches?
I use continuously variable transmissions or centrifugal clutches depending on the application.
There are also small 3 speed transmission out there made by Comet and Albion that I might consider for another build.
