    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

Just finished this one up . Grim Reaper kit with a few mods . I removed some chrome , I removed the rank which was molded to the frame . I then molded the two tank halves . I shortened the fork about an inch . I cut down the seat from the king and queen and also shortened the sissy bar . I made and added the rear fender fin . Painted it purple and yellow . Did not turn out exactally what I had in mind but I think it is ok .

Nice job !!!!  I foggily remember building this kit wwwaaayyy back in the day. I had a terrible time getting the vinyl lines to curve around to where they were supposed to go. The whole thing turned out like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH...... so I shot it with an entire brick (144) bottle rocket's. Fast forward to now and I want to slap myself silly for destroying something worth way more than I paid for it.

I like you're version a lot better !!!!!

Thanks Tim. I would love to have back all the models I blew up when I was young and stupid. It was fun at the time.

Tim, I meant to tell you that if you insert a thin wire into the hose it will bend and hold bend better.

Thanks Jim. It is true I built a couple lately. A Cobra for me, a MGB for a friend and this bike my wife bought me. She felt I need something to do and that this is as good as anything. I may still do one from time to time but be more selective on what I do.
