Started frame,the top tube has multiple bends in it because the blower will be on top of the motor,the girder forks I'm making will be extremely short with very little travel,the tank will have bends in it to match the frame top tube and cutouts in it for the Weber carb and blower manifolding,the girders I'm making in 16mm solid stainless round bar ,everything will be polished stainless,I'm using the wheels off the old NSU bike ,but they will be stripped and stainless spokes added and the hubs polished ,here s a pic of the mock up so far,and i have added a pic of the mercedes supercharger I'm using and the Weber carb,both of these will be mirror polished,the CB 750 is coming along also,i have lowered the front light and added a iron head brake setup
Got my thick walled stainless tube for my supercharged NSU,for the frame today,got 6mtres for 90 quid and its already polished,just needs repolishing to a mirror finish before i bend the tubes in the jig,also got my inverted forks and might use my magnesium astralite wheels on it also.Im making the yokes out of stainless tube as well
Bought myself a secondhand hooligan bike,its a zxr 900 160mph thing ,no plastics on it,renthal bars,loud pipe,and its fast !,not bad for 600 quid! this bike is just my everyday transport,so i can concentrate on building my custom bikes,and not be off the road or in a car,and i can now go out with my friends and not have to worry about getting there or back!(although i may argue that's half the fun!)
We all have our vices ,mines codeine addiction ,cant get off them because I'm weak ,what to do???? keep trying to be a better person is a start ,and the ability to laugh at oneself and help others which i find so much easier to do,than helping myself in this crazy fucked up world,i suppose things would be much harder if i didn't have the passion for what i do and the love of my family and friends ,its easy to type this shit,much easier than talking on the phone ,or face to face ,bloody drugs help numb things,i suppose numb the reality of life and different situations .....blogs are like having a diary I'm told except this diary isn't secret but i don't care....back to bikes now...
HA HA HA HA :)now this is my silly bike,and ill be starting on my stainless supercharged blingy bike at the weekend and i have all the bits and a nice shiny blower now for it too.In this pic the engines are in the frame loosely bolted in
Bloody hell...47 yrs old,(almost as old as Pete Stansfield...)hhhmmmnnnn ...what will decide to do with my life ,now that I'm at the crossroads....pontificate,pontificate,YES!,think ill do just what i always do,build bikes and silly things until i snuff it...YES,ill do that i think!
Finally got my blower,I'm in two minds to either use it on the 8 cyl NSU,or maybe use it on my 4 cyl NSU ,I'm getting enough stainless tube for two frames ,so ill re do the old NSU and maybe fit this blower and some new bits,if i supercharge the single engined one i can make it a bit sleek and special,the 8 will be big and bulky,i think they will compliment each other,I'm hoping to go back to France next year with something much better now that i have seen what the other builders are doing
