dont know what you call this but Ive done it on all the spot welded joints.



its still to cold outside and I cant wait any longer so Ive rearanged the small "tent" where I usually spray paint guitars so it vill fit the frame and body.



the ballons and stuff are left from when my youngest daughter had her birthday party in the workshop. we had candles all over the place, dance floor and disco lights in the spray booth and barbeque in the forge. it was very nice.

It's called ' lead wiping '. Old school way of getting a smooth body finish without using auto body filler.

A lost art for the most part so you have my respect

I wouldnt call my self luthier. I have to little experience and way to much respect for that. for the last 6-7 years I have built about the same amount of electric guitars, I do all wood work from scratch and some metal work, and done repaires on both acoustics and electrics. I have sold two guitars but my focus is on learning the trade and build as good instruments as I possible can. for fun, I cant imaging this will ever replace my day time job.
and it is fun, it is completely intoxicating

finished. except for the electric stuff. and like a 1000 more things. drove 40-50km today and it seems to work fine. I will add a sway bar later, the chock works better after I renovate it but still needs a stronger spring.
I tried to meassure everything when I put it together but Im not sure how it ended up. so Im surprised it works as good as it does.
its neutral around 80-90km/h and pulls to the right a little at about 110, is that ok or should I increase lean in. I have never driven any other rig than my own so I have nothing to compare with. dont really know what is acceptable, dont want to wrestle with the bike more than necessary

Nice

I'd just keep it "neutral" at the speed you ride the most, I did and I like it that way.

I love the finish work. Came out great!

With those tires, looks like the Goldwing is gonna get dirty! Do you plan any sort of protection for the radiator?

thanks for the nice comments. the plan was to paint it "gulf" blue but I saved the money and used paint I had from some other project. I dont know, it dosent look like a scrambler, which sort of was the plan. but it looks a little mean, I think I keep the handlebars insted of the motocross bars I planed to use.

I live along a gravel road and its hell with street tires when its wet, but I drive mostly on asphalt so I dont really need extra protection or a skid plate. I think I maby want some other protection for the radiator because I dont like the look on this one. the tires work very good on all surfaces

waiting for a new spring for the shock, did the brackets for the lights yesterday. my first atemts to tig weld alu to, that was not easy. tried to remove the black paint on the fender. to my surprise it coverd plastic padding and what seemed to be a tin can. the bike has run 40 000km, it runs and looks like new and the fender is reapaired with a tin can. strange.


I found it hard to find light for the back of the hack. stumbled on this on an old truck I found in the forest. most likely scania or volvo.
