Gaskets and welds are a very nice touch! I know you posted early that the gaskets wouldn't be noticable, but I think they are a very kool addition! Very nice work, I look forward to watching the progress.

hello thanks eveyone,

the welds are tamiya 2 part puddy, if you guys want i can do a little how to on it in the next post

anyways i got the stance figured out, if you have ever seen one of these you know they have a very harly like look, well i like jappens racers, so i tryed to lay it on the ground, the front tires will go out a bit more, about a extra inch, i modifyed the front tube(sorry don't know whats its called) to get a lower look.

Posted Image

i have the frame painted and the engine mounted but haven't got pics yet, i'll try to get them on later tonight.

thanks

hello again.

here are the pics of the real ride hight, you will also notice the paint and engine bolted in.

Posted Image

"it may be just a lawn mower engine but i can still make it look cool" :lol:

Also theres a little tool box, i made it open then added a strap, i think in real life it threaded on but this looks cooler, then i tryed to texture it like cheap plastic cast, just for fun i added a few things for the inside.

Posted Image

and on the bike closed up (just turn the top lach and it opens up)

thanks for looking

thanks man,
hopefuly there will be more bikes here, but we seam pretty set on cars, makes sense anyway this is model cars mag form.

heres some progress, i did a ton on the rear swing arm, almost everything bolts together, and the drum break works, it s not tolaty done yet, still need to do carbon fiber on the chain gard, and cut down some bolts.

Posted Image

Posted Image

and heres the break its not actrat at all the story is that honda came up wiht a new expermental drum break instead of replacing it with disk,

Posted Image

also started on the front end, only thing worth showing is the caliper so far

Posted Image

a question for eveyone, i need any refrence, there are no hayenes manuals or similar product, and i don't know much about bikes electircal in the first place any pics will help

thanks for looking and what ya think

hello,
and thanks man

bit of stuff done,

its got a working kick stand now, not sure why it needs it but it's kinda fun.
here is it down,

Posted Image

and up, also got the air box in there right now, still needs some bolts.

Posted Image

got the baddery started hopfuly the owners japenes cause i sure can't read that.
any way its stock, with some photoeched that will concet to wires later.

Posted Image

with refrence i went to the manga cousin the honda monkey, though i got no refrence because they use a difrent electrical harnes i did find these crazy modifyed ones. kinda fun and what im going for, except these are all aftermarket, the plan behind mine is that with sales plumting in america honda made a more sporty verson, hopeing to brand it as a hight performace bike, the changed the stance bored out the engine, added a oil cooler, and added funky colors wiht stickers, i dont think this would ever happen but its decent story to explane this thing,
heres one of the moded ones.

Posted Image

and the oil cooler that i'm working on now.


Posted Image

thanks for looking and your coments are aprecateded.

hello everyone, got some done, sorry for the long break.

heres bascialy a overall shot of whats done right now.

Posted Image

as you can see i painted, sanded, polished, and waxed, its a light metalic black. I think it looks pretty good, at least for me its pretty refelictive you can see that here.

Posted Image

also got some wireing done. this bike didn't have an alternater so i got that done.

Posted Image

and then it concets to this wireing mess.

Posted Image

thanks for looking, and i would reley like to here what you think.

Hi Eric,
nice and interesting project you´ve started. There is not so much information about the Magna 50 in the net. But I think you can use for the wiring the Dax as a reference for the model. There are a few plans for wiring to find in the net.

Hello everyone I'm back on this, I'm taking a new direction, a cafe style bike but still mixed with the modern performance bike I showed before

Here's kinda a overall shot of the idea and the stance.

Posted Image

The main difference besides some paint will be this thing:

Posted Image

Posted Image

I got rid of the rear fender and the seat and have replaced them with this little set up.

Thanks for looking and your comments are appreciated also if any one has an idea of where to hide the license plate on this it would be helpful.

Erik, you continue to blow me away! This is a beautiful build. Curious, what is your source for all the nuts and bolts?

Thanks
