    Is a 110 watt alternator going to be enough?

    FOr those lights in their original configuration......no way. However, the two smaller lights, which are 55/60w headlights, they will actually be, um, marker lights, I suppose you could call them. Plan is to reduce them down to more like something in the 25w range and tint the lense either a red or blue, depending upon what the laws in Michigan would allow on a replica vintage police bike.

    Yea, if you're just going to be running the lights for effect, you could always toss in a second battery. Cool project. Always nice to see something different!

    Are you going to carry a cooler of ice cream in case you end up with a bunch of kids following you around? :rofl

    Ice Cream??? Nope, My target goal/demographics is for a cooler of beer and then cruising sorority lane at the local college.


    Hmmm....maybe a pony keg with room for some bottles. Then flip the top up and be able to offer a draft or well drinks????

    SLowly getting there with the servi-car. The subframe which the actual box will set on is pretty much done. Leaf spring is mounted.

    Leaf spring is primarily for lateral support. Here is the air shock. Inflatable to 100psi. At just 25psi, feels pretty decent already.

    Progress has been slow with the spring rush of customer bikes, but we are slowly getting there.

    At least its a roller now.

    Passed its first crucial test. It fit thru the shop doors with 1/4in to spare on each side. The other issue it passed on was that it rolls perfectly straight and true.

    The interior panels are all cut and ready to be mounted.

    I love that you mounted up those spoked wheels. Very nice touch! This thing is looking great and is getting me thinking.....
