Oil Tank

A long time ago, I ordered a police oil tank for my Knucklehead project, but unfortunately the tank never showed up. For that reason I had to make a new plan for the design.
After a lot of brainstorm in the workshop, the idea about trashed white and water decals came up.
I had a chrome reproduction oil tank with filler neck at the R/H side, witch I had dechromed before I started the paint job.

Front Fender Part II

As posted previously, it's very usefull to have a front fender when you live in Denmark. One of the tasks this weekend was to fabricate the struts and paint all of it.
I dont have all of the trim yet, but it will be similar to the rear fender.

Rails


I have always liked fender rails, and they are really usefull when you want to carrie your luggage.
Every time I have seen a set that I like at eBay, they cost a fortune, so I decided to make my own setup.
First I decided for the size, then I used the most of a night milling the stuts and spacers in the lathe, then another evening for bending the rails, chopping them in the correct length, shaping the ends nice and round and sandblasting and parkerize all the bits and pieces.
I think it looks really nice, and they fit the budget.. 0$

Swapmeet

This weekend I went to a swapmeet to see if I could find some of the last things I need for the Knucklehead, and I had a really nice weekend together with my father.
I found the last covers I need for the forks, a set of gas caps, a set of clutch and brake grips, a nice set of stainless handlebars, a cast riser, a chain guard, a rear brake master cylinder, and a 1955 european passenger seat
