My Spoiler arrived last friday. Over the past week I have had it around to my mates a few times:- Clean up the rusty forks (some parts were pitted quite bad) I think it'll cost to much to have them rechrome so I may buff them back to bare metal and paint them black. I also had the handlebars cleaned up but I have since put a pair of minimoto bars on that I had laying around.BEFORE.
Yesterday I had my mate Peter (he does all my welding) cut off the top of the small sissybar and weld a couple of extensions on, its looking ok but I may have to alter the angle a bit? we'll see how it looks once I get a back rest made up for it.AFTER.
Today I cut up some angle iron and made up a tow frame which I took around to my mate Peter's to get him to weld it up. Back home I added some paint, bolted on my towball, hooked up my push trailer (no batteries, there on recharge) and took it for a quick spin around the block, It handled ok. I try out the motor on my trailer tomorrow once I hook up all the wiring and recharge the batteries.SPOILER & TRAILER.
At the moment im doing everything I can on the cheap to kinda tidy it up a bit. I plan on an all black bike with gold wheel rims. Im waiting on some gold braided brake cable coming. I have a few other bits n' pieces picked out in gold, I'll also paint the trailer lid gold.
As i say all is on the cheap at the moment until some work comes in but that may be a while in coming, the reason being one of my best mates who I work with (he reads the drawings on the jobs) fell down the stairs at home and banged his head on the wall at the bottom, he's now laying in hospital paralized from the neck down
Were all hoping he'll recover but doctors say he will never walk again.
Once I get some Â£ $ rolling in i'll invest in one of those RC motors. I'll probably be asking thousands on questions about the motor/batteries and all thats involved? Also need to ask about gear ratios and the like as all this stuff is way over my head
