No-name R-M chopper finished
Posted 05 September 2006 - 12:10 PM
Most of yooooose guys have named your choppers. I couldn't think of anything clever,,,,,so it's just a custom bike. Headers were heat wrapped with Tamiya masking tape and painted metallic color. Polished aluminum tips. Bike is fully wired.
Scratchbuilt mirrors, speedometer and license plate added to make it legal in Maryland. Seat was sanded smooth and red wire piping added.
I made a primary cover and shifter linkage. The handlebars are the result of some creative cutting and glueing.
The next one is going to have many more modifications. I find I'm currently a little obcessed with these new bike kits. Can't wait for the next two in October.
A few more pics at the link, bottom of page, if ya want them.

now dont get me wrong but disks dont work on this bike. and isnt your front disk on backwards? and i would have to ask whats up with the lack of detail on the back of the disks...shouldnt they be drilled through? but as i said the disks kind of dont look right...i would have none on the front and a small drum on the back. as long as i didnt have to ride it that is!
cool bike altogether though and very nice paint detailing!

absolutely gorgeous! How did you get the rims painted and not the spokes? I thought of that on mine but the masking would have drivin me NUTS! Again great job.
Good ol' Polly Scale water based acrylic paint,,,and a brush.
