As I stated above, "You & your Son have true skills. That's a neat looking fabrication on the exhaust" and should keep the neighbors up ;)
Your custom designed, engineered and one-off Rearsets are a piece of Art … the bike suits you well Wolfraider. Thanks for sharing the build once again!

Looks awesome, thanks for sharing.
Please upload a sound file as it is up running !

Can we please see more pics from the seat/rear combination ?
I wouldn't "complain" about a female model covering the great craftsmen work, but with the boss on top ..... hm ....... kidding, wolfraider 😇 🤘
All my respect,
Thommy

I have always been in awe of people who take their desires by the proverbial horns and achieve amazing things thru
hard work and a willingness to learn from and overcome whatever obstacle(s) arise. You and Your son have taken this
to the next level. I hope I can speak for most of us on this forum; when I say this is one incredible build and you both are an inspiration to us who admire human ingenuity and the desire to create.

Your bike is truly a beast and we look forward to a full report on its shakedown run, once complete! We salute You
and your efforts Sir!!

Final touches on the exhaust system!
I got the exhaust springs in the mail yesterday, and we installed them today!

Top slip joint

Bottom slip joint
247490

Because of the tight fit they were not needed, I just like the mechanical look of them!

Looks pretty awesome. Would love to heard it screaming down the road. Cool design.

That my good man is the coolest exhaust I've ever seen on a warrior, if you and your son should ever desire to start building too sell to the less talented I'd be interested!

We'd love to fabricate another one, but the cost is frightening because of the huge amount of labor that it takes to make it happen. I don't want to cause heart attacks, which most likely would be the case if I mention the cost!

I've made a new front fender for my project bike yesterday.
After cutting the blank from a 16 ga sheet of 6061 aluminum on my plasma table, I pounded, annealed, pounded again, and wheeled it into submission. It took me a while, but I'm happy how this turned out. I also fabricated some stainless fender brackets for mounting. All that's missing are some bolts!

Annealing it to make it more pliable.

After annealing it, I was wheeling it on my English wheel to get all the bumps out!

I cut some stainless bar stock, made some bends, and drilled them to work as fender brackets.

This was a helpful experience to muster the courage for more sheet metal shaping in preparation for all the other parts I want to build to complete the bike!

I got some stainless bolts for the fender, and before mounting it on the bike, I tried my buffer for the first time to get a finish on the fender. I was surprised how easy it was to polish aluminum with the help of some compound. It turned out better then I thought!

Those stainless fender brackets will polish up nicely too!
