Boy howdy! The judges at DSC-17 (next April) are gonna be wanting overtime pay when these two creations hit the table in the Motorcycle Category!

 

You can be assured I won't be entering any motorcycles.

Got the engine plumbed, wired, oil pump and carb installed. Forgot to take photos of engine before installing it in the frame.

The pulleys are aluminum which I turned on a lathe.

Now it's time to build the exhaust...

The fuel tank, rear fender and frame are painted Tamiya TS-55 Dark Blue.

Thanks for lookin'...😎

Very impressive amount of detail work Curt, look forward to the next progress update and seeing it as a roller. 

Where you at John ??

A cool detail from the 1:1 radial bike that I always liked - check the considerately designed recess in the seat:

(excuse the watermark - couldn’t find any good pics that Photobucket hadn’t ruined):

Apparently the reason for that feature is if you’re brave enough to ride the bike and really open it up, you’d NEED that recess in the seat, if you get my drift 😂

Looking great so far Curt!  Really enjoying this one!

My first take on the exhaust:

I didn't really like it, so I went this way:

Curt, that is so intense and I'd say Johnny's gonna have to up his game to compete with this. Sweet ride that I'd like to take for a spin.

For as complicated as the exhaust system is the flow is beautifully graceful./ Top shelf stuff!

Very good work!!! I'm right there with the rest of the folks who are saying that this doesn't look like a scale model at all. Good show!!
