Not selfish. If you actually charged for the amount of hours you put in I couldn't afford it.

Thanks for the compliment and I hope that does not seem too selfish, greedy or ????
There's nothing wrong with that Scott.
You've done a great job - it truly IS a one-off and will stay unique!

Thanks Joey. It is off being anodized. I might have it back tomorrow, hopefully.

Most excited to see how it came out. Learned something along the way..

I silica bead blasted it to get a more even texture across it. Seems anodizers don't like to do blasted parts. If it is the wrong material it will mess up there tanks and they will be pissed. I think the silica is alright since i have not heard back from them.

I guess the blasting actually embeds some of the silica in the aluminum.

Hoping for the best but told them NOT to mess up their tank doing my stuff.

I will post up once I get it back from plating....

Looking forward to seeing it on the bike.


Have you been following the "locked n loaded" thread?

I reckon your next project should be a Smith & Western side stand!

Dude that is freakin awesome. It turned out much better than I thought it would. Not sure how much you have in that but others WILL want one, for sure!
