Day 25

Slow progress recently, but here is some of the stuff i've done recently and some current pics of the Knuck.


needed to remove some material from the rear caliper to make it work, so i chucked it up in the mill and shaved it down a bit.


outside in the daylight. i'm diggin' the Vespa scooter and side car that belong to my buddy Tomo of Bike Garage Kokoro.


bungs for the upper fender mount. i forgot to take a picture, but these were welded to a plate on the frame.


lower fender mount. pretty ugly right now, but i'll clean it up nicely once the engine is out.


the knuckle as it sits.

Day 15

well, here are some pics of some of the stuff i've finished so far.


mid controls for both sides.


brass end cap for the kill switch to match the one i turned on the lathe to house the ignition switch.


and the brake and clutch levers (i'm going to be using a suicide clutch).

Already rolling so to speak

this is the way it sits in my buddy's garage. he's kindly letting me have free run of his shop to get the knuck on the road. lots of work to do in a relatively little amount of time. i've got vacation time from one of my jobs until the end of September, and i'm gonna try to get this baby done in that time. i may make it, may not, but it's gonna be done right regardless.
