my low budget buildt
i thought it was time for a new projekt. It Will be on a tiny budget and i don't know if its gonna be so cool But i hope you all Will enjoy reading.

So this is when it beginns. Bought a 883 from 87 for cheap money and started take it down... Pice by pice

Not mutch to se yet but hold on. It Can only be better. Will update as orten i can.

So this is one of the things that i'm building for my bike. I's my own springer wannabe front End with a stock rear shock. I have already started a bit

Here is the length compared with a stock harley leg

And with the rear shock

mullemeck 09-27-2011 02:41 PM

todays work was the upper mount for the shock. Perhaps not the most beatuful pice of work but it Will work for me

Not the nicest welds either

Beacause of my fake springer construction i need a upper linkage to hold the front legs in line. So i started make some pices for that.

mullemeck 09-28-2011 01:32 PM

Started a oiltank production to

Spade115 09-28-2011 01:51 PM

Very cool man :D

mullemeck 09-28-2011 01:57 PM

I Can't wait to get the frame free from all shit and start reconstruct the bike as i want it. I sure hope i Can get my front end to work god

I started my day with bending the front legs so i can do a lower shock mount in the center. Just need to cut them in right length.

The consentration level is high in my bald head

And then.... Hell yeah

Im saticfyed with the bends.... Sorry for the mess in my workshop. Just moved to this place recently and trying to get it good

mullemeck 09-29-2011 11:20 AM

Have done the lower mount. Just need to grind it to the right shape and weld it to the front legs. Then i finaly Can see where this will look like

Spade115 09-29-2011 11:23 AM

this is awesome man :eek: very cool

i dont understand this fake springer... how does the front leg attach @ the axle??? and why not just make a functional/conventional springer?? its the same amount of work....

mullemeck 09-29-2011 02:32 PM

Hmm, i don't know if i follow you... But i hope you Will see how it should work.

And now for the reasons... 1. I don't like to do conventional stuff that you Can buy in a store. Everyone Can buy shiny parts and put it together to a Bling-bling chopper... 2. This is as the title says a project build on a low budget to show that you Can build cool bikes for cheap money

This is my old sportster.... Not the bike you see in every corner either

i get the whole budget thing... (look at my build right below yours)

how are you attaching the front leg at the axle/pivot point?

is the shock going to do anything? if so how is this a 'fake' springer? seems that you are building more of a girder than anything else.

...not ripping on ya, just tryin to figure out what you have going on.
