Great job Fringe!! Looks great, do you think you could do one of those for a seat cover for an RR? I could staple it on myself.

Thanks for the replys, guys.
Griz, I've not had any funds to play with so mods had to stop.
Also me brains been fried learning computer stuff for the new job so not been able to face the PC at home!

Megawatt, whenever your ready m8.

FBF, there are some limitations as the tooling leather is thick but I'm sure we can work something out.

I'm always open to ideas and challenges. hyper

Hand tooled (Skulls) seat cover on homemade fibreglass seat base
hand formed Acrylic undertray.
modified RRW subframe.
Home made Steel Battery box leather covered with a Tooled (More Skulls) battery strap.

You could trim the hugger so it followed the vertical line of the tail piece?

oops I broke it. frustrated
first ride to The Thundersprint at Northwich, last Sunday. Bloody Cheshire roads saw off my handmade light surround! Or it could've been the wheel pushing the Number plate up when I wheeliebike
Either way I gotta make a new one so in the spirit of overkill I ordered a new Subby to cut down. scratch
I plan on doing it right this time and leaving enough to mount the Number plate and strengthen the tail piece. Twisted Evil

I cut down my micron can today.
Now it's 12" long overall and I fitted a universal baffle.
With the baffle it sounds louder but 'Throaty' too
Without the baffle it's Orgasmic.

Ok. I aint posted for a while but over the 'winter' Ive been tidying and resolving some problems that surfaced during riding.

Main problem was damaged panels due to bad subframe construction and poor panel fitting and a cooked battery.

So a new subframe has been built.
New under tray
New tail light surround.
New battery tray in the tail.
New tail light.
and a load of SKULLS.
why? Dunno, I jus came across Skulls. so...........
here they are.








more pics when I fit it to the bike.
which now had the name SkullBlade tooled into the seat.

bye for now

I was going to start a new build thread but seeing as I found the old one........
But first I need to fill in a couple, erm 2 n a half years Ive been missing.
easiest and quickest is with pictures......

Ok so I'm not sure if I've posted any of this in other places on the forum and If I have I apologise but its seems this thread finishes with my Blade looking like this....



From that I went a bit Mental on the Skulls thing



But actually getting the lights in the eyes to work right and look devilish actually took the best part of 2years!



With the help of Megawatt a set of projectors were pressed into service



But it took a suggestion from my daughter to give the Stare that moved traffic!



But it wasnt til the next MOT that I finally sorted the Dip beam patern. Lol

The Blade or SkullBlade as it was known was ridden around Showed a couple of times and as and when problems arose, upgrades were made.



Lots of work on Baffles that didnt work



A photo shoot not for a magazine tho  No 



a trophy won for Rat Bike. which is fair coz the build quality was shite. Lol.



After which a facebook page was started called rat fighters a direction further towards rat bike was seen with drag Bars and Chq plate being tried and binned







Finally, at a Funeral Precession the Fan decided not to run, the Rad boiled over and after a cautious ish 200mile ride home the reg rec called time and some serious fettling was called for.



So there ya go.
2 and a half years in a nutshell.
yep its a Streetfighter. Yes it was a Castrol painted Blade and now its having all those untidy jobs tidied and thanks to me  Ole Mum (RIP) some posh bits being fitted.
like these....














Right. Thats it. Up to date...
