just need someone to take a pic of a standard 650 side on, not on the sidestand but nearly vertical with a rear axle stand under the swingarm or with the handlebar leaning against something. camera lens 4M away and 500mm above the floor.



If I have the pic then I can overlay 2 to show the difference

Re: Bushmechanic frame Build pics and Stuff

Thanks, you have a good start. Hopefully someone can post up a good picture. All I got right now is
a cell phone and might not come out that good.
Anyone?

Re: Bushmechanic frame Build pics and Stuff

Youll get rick yerself once you channel your creativity and energy in that direction, unless you already are filthy rich, nothing wrong in that. I'm hoping to see a paulownia frame in the future, with clear glass laminate on top, making it lighter than anything else on the planet and spectacularly woody in appearance, like a fine piece of furniture. Integral tank?, maybe. Even the latest jet fighters use a lot of glass fiber BTW, yes glass.

Re: Bushmechanic frame Build pics and Stuff

I like CF less and less the more I use it, a front guard needs to be tough really but the CF has the "racing" bling factor

you're right tough is better than stiff a lot of the time and in chasing lightweight something with a thin CF skin kind of evolves and then becomes a liability, nothing wrong with S glass and even a bit of Kevlar for toughness.

paulownia sits spectacularly between balsa and western red. I like it a lot, too much perhaps to invite termites to remove it. I like the sound of the retro wooden bike, laminated hickory and oak handlebars, id like to see that too

Re: Bushmechanic frame Build pics and Stuff

yes, CF does have the bling factor. But it can be had in a a glass laminate too if the second layer from the surface is thin CF and the rest glass, then the upper glass layer can be sanded too without smudging the whole appearance. Tough and bling at the same time. Or just get black glass and don't tell...

Re: Bushmechanic frame Build pics and Stuff

got these Ohlins RXF forks at a good price so could not pass them up



the consistency in performance is very similar to my modded WPs, not a surprise since I copied the TTX recirculating design in there but they have the twin chamber progression that Ive been missing. Very Very nice forks. I have lengthened them about 8mm and gained the same in travel.



seat cover from Logjump, Thanks Log! bit of old toyota seat foam glued on top the old seat to flatten it out a bit.



not sure whats next I have an auto clutch Ive been fiddling with, its nice for trailriding but everywhere else I think auto clutches might be for pooosies
