In the beginning! - Woody made the Wheels

Well all I could say was Fark Fark Fark Fark Fark for quite some time as I opened the discreet brown cardboard boxes that had arrived all the way from America. WWW triumphs again! Woody's Wheel Works and the World Wide Web have astounded me, Chris you are a legend these wheels are the best yet

So it starts: In the beginning! - Woody made the Wheels


...and what a set of wheels they are beside the bar...



This is the beginning of my new project bike for the Pilbara and WWW has put together the most awesome set of BMW wheels known to mankind.



The reason for all the Farks in the beginning is these things are SO LIGHT! and so strong too.

Can you tell I'm excited?

Wow, that looks like 'some assembly required'. Those wheels sure look nice, though!

No, they're tube-only applications.

You've done it now. You are required to maintain a build report once you start construction.

not a lot of momentum...hopefully soon!!

Got a couple of projects on at the moment, the 950 is getting worked on and I can't show pics of that one in here. So nothing really to show in the way of momentum on the KHB2 project, but here are a couple of the engine starting to be checked out, the big steel beam is the base to build the frame off and the other shots are of the the other GS getting a birthday treat and makeover. Including the unique 2 piece swingarm and a new one care of ebay! Brand new and it got here in a week from Germany and cost a pittance!
The table is a nearly a complete GS. The boy and I are working on that project. Enjoy and hopefully I will get some bits of steel on the beam soon.Cheers Pilbara

Its back on again...

Yes after many years the project is on the go again. This is going to be somewhat different. I am sure it will offend a few, but this is a free world, the bit I live in anyway...

Will post photos soon.

Cheers
Pilbara
