Drixton Tank and Seat

The new Seat and tank look bitchen. Thank you Airtech. You guys kick more ass than a donkey farm.

I had to cut out the rear fender mount, to make everything fit properly, but Dutch said he would help me build a new rear hoop for it. Dutch is the man!  He’s my go to guy when I get stuck. A really patient dude, that has helped me debug my carbs, eletrical and now the rear hoop. But really I’m just trying to make my bike as cool as his.

I had to cut this brace/inner fender mount to make the seat sit on the frame rails. Because of the tank the seat sits further back.

All cut out, and can work on the rear hoop.

Here are pictures of the seat and tank inplace, but no mount points. I still have to weld those in.

I'm excited about the paint. I think gold black and red.

I'm a big fan of the seat shape.

Rebuilding the Scrambler (again)

So I got a new Fender, tank and seat, from the guys at Airtech, for the scrambler. It’s the Drixton style. I’m really excited about it. We all know what that means…..rebuild. I was always unhappy with the build as it was. The bike itself is a blast to ride, but visually I was not entirely pleased.

I have to cut some tuff off of the frame I missed the first time. I’ll post all of that as I do it. I also have to weld a rear hoop, so I can mount the seat and the battery under the seat. Plus it will make the back end of the frame more rigid.

The first thing on my plate is venting the rear brake. I like the way it looks plus it will help keep it cool.

Here are the pictures…..

Here is the brake plate before I got a hold of it.

And the backside, with the shoes removed.

 

No plasma cutter, so I have to drill it out.

And the backside.

I'm telling you, my Dremel is my best friend.

I think it turned out pretty good.

 

And a close up. I got all the materials at Marshalls. The Screen and the aluminum plate. I just have to fix it to the brake plate. I think some allen screws will look nice.
