I wasn't a fan of the gold areas on the forks, easily covered up with some PVC tubing.
Not to sure about the WOW factor Ricardo...you be the judge.

Bought some steel rod at Lowes and built me a hdlight guard,even dipped it in some of that there Plastidip for that factory look.


Also made my own oil cooler from a hunk of Aluminium that once served as a tailgate protector.



Then took a hunk of steel from a GM Bumper support and made some aux. light supports.



And the finished project's...



Then I tried to put bigger/hotter plugs in but could not get the thread 's started...maybe Helicoils.

I REALLY like those. Does the horizontal portions swivel up when not in use?

When cleaning up around an old machine a co-worker and myself found what at first appeared to be a 4x4 wooden block, though when I attempted to pick it up with one hand came away greasy and no block.
The chunk of brass was about 4" by 4" exactly and two feet long. I sawed off a bit off the end and made a few buckles. The "tool" is carbon, with silicon in it, just like pencil "lead".
I Took a photo of the timing cover of my bike at the time,

And traced this onto a painted surface of the tool material then hand cut it to create the tool.

No, that is one concept. Instead made so they come off quickly (quick release). It is attached in two places on each side. So take them off and leave them at the camp site, if staying for a little while. Anyway, I liked them a lot more than I thought I would. Unlimited pile on ability

This man built not one but TWO hovercrafts and noone asked any question about them? (not to mention the background scenery...) I guess they're as common as dirt down here in the lower 48 with everyone building one in their garage.

Well, duh yeah! I have one next to the flying car in my garage. The damn thing is blocking in the Spagthorpe. I'm waiting for the next freeze so I can get it out. After all, in Wisconsin the glacier is only a couple miles up da road. Unfortunately my fusion powered digicam just died otherwise I'd have taken some photos. Geesh, you'd think those hovercraft were special or something...
