Gas Globe

In my fathers workshop, we have an old gas pump. Today a GULF gas globe to be mounted on the top, arrived. It is very sweet. The frame is made of polished plastic, and th logos are made of glass !

Same shit, same story : ) My freind Claus and I made a deal about theese old footpegs, now I removed the chrome and polished the aluminum.

Oil filter

I bought an old oil filter from a friend of mine. As much as I like polish metals I hate poor chrome ! This filter housing was (of cause) chrome, and it’s not just chrome, it’s some cheep weak china chrome, I really can’t stand it : ) haha.

Anyway it’s not worth the bitterness, and luckily there ís a solution to the problem. Today I removed the chrome by using a file and some sandpaper.

I polished the aluminum part and right now the lower part is just raw steel with a little leftover of copper plating. My plan is that I’ll just give it a layer of clear coating to keep the raw look. If it turns up to be a bad idea I’ll paint it black instead.

Rear fender

As you properbly have noticed no pictures were coming up last weekend. The thing is that I was very tired friday due to a lot of work in the aviation, and not much were done on the bike. Saturday I went to a housewarming and we had a hell of party !

This weekend things turned up a little different and I got some work done on the bike. Unfortunately this time my mother borrowed the camera to Barcelona, I'll take some better pictures later, for now we have to be content with theese shitty phone pictures : )

Hand made old fashion steel bracket mounted with rivets on the rear fender - this detail looks so cool in real life and migh be the sweetest detail on this bike so far:

Dirty job

Removal and installation of brush blocks for the propeller anti-icing and replace the brushes is a dirty job : ) I almost look like an inverted negro :D white skin and black inside the hands...

Spareparts order list

At the moment I'm working in Norway, so I can't really work at my Ironhead project, but that doesn't mean that I'm not getting anything done. Everyday I'm in the progress working out ideas for the last items on the bike. Besides that I can prepare a lot of things.

Today I ordered some of the spareparts that I need to get the bike done.

So now I'm looking forward to see what the postman is bringing : )
