Thanks Ksprue.
I dunno what braided line and fittings you are describing....
We will get to that soon enough as there will be a ton of it on the fuel system for this bike.
Teasy-peasy with some handlebar detail:

Bitty-wits from page one into black. These are a gas tank cap , 2 fork bolts , another cap for something and 2 guage body's and an oil filter mount. I like to have these done for when the model needs them, they will be chrome:

Harley racers up to even today, dispense with the sheet metal and tubing of the pushrod covers. These would generally blow off during high speed all out runs. Exposed pushrods were the order of the day. I could set the solid lifters in my shovelhead , usually in about an hour for all four,
it took me 4 hours to fit the four pushrods on the model engine:

Some simple ,traditional modelling procedures result in 2 gauges for the model. An oil pressure guage and a fuel pressure guage. shown here back/front. These are less then 1/8" dia.:

Wow, those pipes are looking good - what did you use for the pipe bending?

Great effort on the detail, its paying off!!

I'm sure I speak for many when I say it's only because we're rendered speechless by your work! And I'm sure I speak for all when say, "KEEP POSTING!"

Ya no worries. I do notice and this is right from the start in 2010 , that my threads are diff than the mainstream in that they arte the opposite! I have 10 pics and 1 comment on a page, many are 1 pic and 10 comments! Thanks for the comments.

I suppose it hardly matters.

Tubing is bent as much tubing is bent, with a tubing bender. This is one made by Robbe, mainly for the fuel lines on boats and other RC models:


This is an excellent tool ,slightly egg-shaping the tubing in the radius, however this is the nature of this kind of tube bending. Exhaust pipes will be fabbed as they are in 1:1 ,sectioning the tubing and joining the pieces.
