huntingroadgators asked: Hey- did you document you honda build on any of the bike forums? Thanks
Unfortunately no, but I did take tons of pictures. Let me know what part of the build you’re interested in and I’ll post some up.
someroughdraft asked: I see you made your seat pan out of fiberglass, what it a hard process? I've seen how to do it online but I am debating on just using some sheet metal. Also do you use threaded studs in the pan to attach it to the frame? Thanks again for answering my questions. I don't know many people that work on bikes.
I also went back and forth on which method to use, but I figured the fiberglass would conform better to the shape of the frame. For mounting, I just used bolts. First, lay down about half of ur fiberglass cloth/mat. Let it dry then drill holes where u want ur mounting studs to be. Then install the bolts & glass the tops of the bolts just like they used to glass fins to surfboards. When that is dry and u are satisfied with the result (u think the bolts will hold) lay down the second half of ur cloth/mat. My pan was a little over 3/16” thick. Make sure to use a combination of fiber cloth & mat layers (alternating) for strength.
whitelines-and-whitelies asked: Your bike is fucking amazing man. Any suggestions for someone who is trying to find his own bike and begin working on it. I'm at the beginner level of everything but have always had a passion for it.
I could write you a novel on what I’ve learned bro. The most important thing though would be to find a bike that runs mint and is in good shape before tearing into it. Don’t limit yourself to a single make and year range because you think u need that exact bike. Find something with your desired engine size and the right price and go from there. Once you start ripping enough shit off any motorcycle they all start to look alike (with a few exceptions of course). Let me know if u have anymore questions on specifics, I’d love to help.
