nice progress, Pally, but stop monkeying around with a single component and tear into that turkey. I want to see parts scattered across your garage. Reduce it to its basic elements, then recreate it after your own image. Maybe not your own image. I should have said "vision".

You'll see that once my conceptual work is done, bro. This bike will most likely be torn down and reassembled more than a couple times during the course of this thread. Like when I make a folding knife, it has to come apart many many times to get things to fit just right and work just right. If all I wanted to was to get this pig running, I'd have done that already. Also, I have to add that when you are fabricating, it takes time - lots of time. I think American Choppers is a joke, but one thing they nail on the head is the long hours of staring at something, and even longer hours creating that vision into reality. Sadly sometimes, that vision never looks as good in reality as it does in your head.

So with all that being said, Ratzuki will be taking on a style that will reflect elements of being a cruiser, but also of being an adventure bike, complete with panniers.Stick around! I'll get as detailed as you guys can stand it!

Mine seems to manifest itself in the lungs. Allergies like mold especially have me coughing all summer long. A non-smoker shouldn't have to deal with it. You should see me gagging when someone is wearing too much cologne or perfume.

Pally.... You are an artist.
Made up a rear fender for a BMW R80/7 chop I built a few years ago.
Got lucky, walked into a scrappy, and picked up a rear fender from an old Suzuki/Honda/Yamaha 125cc delivery bike, rotated it through about 70 degrees, split it, and welded in an inch or so, lead wiped (new trick to me ) and finished it. Looked pretty right when done.
However, you have created a good looking piece of kit, using your wits......MMMMMmmmm..... that's trick.
Will be keeping my eye on your job.

Thanks for the compliments, Grizz. Lead wiping... now that's really old school body working. There are times I wouldn't mind trying that. This fender, being that its going on a rat, I don't want to finish too awefully much - I just think I grind down the wedls and blend in the sides and give it several coats of black hammer paint. Btw, hammer paint is going to be sort of the theme on this bike. Its already has a disgusting texture on anything other than machinery. Some light spritzing of flat and satin black over the texture of the hammered paint and it'll be pretty RAT-TASTIC!

Yep, I have tried all sorts of weird shit in my life, ie Lead wiping, etc.

On the R80/7 that I built, all the body bits were sprayed matt black, a few coats of, then poished to get a good satin sheen.

There were loadsa parts I have forgotten the source of over time, but the rear fender, and also the seat, made up of the scraps/leftovers of two Vespa scooter seats and then neatly upholstered with black vinyl with buttons, they made me happy as well as the straight through cut off pipes, that gave it the name Thunderchild.
