Yeah but I'll bet your wrists are okay?
After a ride over Woodhead yesterday my left wrist was killing me and making me think in another few years Cabbie's clutch might be my only option if I'm to keep with blades.

I got side tracked by my 'In-Laws' too pullhaur2 trim the bottom of a door, post carpet fitting. badmood
So not much done really badmood badmood

Re: Blade fighter

Post by Fringe on Mon 27 Jul 2009, 21:17

I've found the exact tail lights I want for the Bladefighter................ but I'm hesitating about spending 70+ .
Do I blow my budget on this and then stuggle harder to finish the the rest? or
'make do' with a more cost effective option?
That'd be the mini clocks n tarty bits being shelved for the forseeable future.
Any opinions?

My other problem is really silly.
I've done seats for Grim1 n yammydave but cant decide what to do on my own!
Too many cool ideas floating thru my puddled brain. pullhaur2

Lookin good fringe, I bet it'll look the dogs when you've upholstered it!

Did you make that foam seat or cut up the original? it looks like you've bought some of that fancy mould stuff & made it yourself, either way it's a great job thumbup

Thanks Griz,
I used parts from the CB seat base, screw them to hardboard then 'Glassed the lot.............except the inner edges so I can staple into it.
Then, I cut it to bits and repositioned the rear section to get the angles right.
I kept changing my mind as to how it should look!
I used the Fibreglass kit you suggested, from halfords.
I need to make some brackets but it sits on ali box cross members with foam pad feet!
Anyway here's some pix.







Dont get too excited the lights arent behind the tinted panel.
It's an option but as with most of this build........
I aint decided yet.
But I'm happy so far

Not sure what a gixer 'fender' is?????????
do ya mean the front mudguard or rear hugger?
If ya mean the front then once I've sorted a Rad Guard I'll be taking my Dremmel to the mudguard as I want it to look like it aint got 1!
Well that'#s the plan but as It's taken 2 yrs to get this far, Dont hold ya breath! Lol
Thanks for the ideas tho

HI guys,
finally I got summat to show you's.
My New seat cover.



just incase it aint too clear, I've tooled the leather. It's a pile of Skulls with 3 skulls rolled off the pile.
Hand stitched seams too. Oh and a nuts saver pad coz I thought it looked a bit flat at the front.
I've made a Leather covered Battery box with tooled skuls on the battery strap but the camera died so no pix yet.

Hopefully it'll all be fitted next weekend for the April Fool Run the week after. eyebrow
