Ultima 200 rigid NZ

Well this is a change for me as I usually make my own frames but the price was so good I couldn't resist.
Frame is 8 up and 38 deg rake to suit 180-200. The frame is ok, welds are not spectacular but with some attention it should all work out.
I'll make mostly everything and started today to get under-way.

Cut the makings of the seat on the wire cutter , drilled it and rolled it to shape.
More work to do yet of course but happy with the outcome.
Next up I machined the neck cups out of stainless.

I will be ordering some wheel blanks soon and machine those to my own pattern.
Next week I'm going to make rear sprocket/sprotor.

Got a start on the sprockster, grabbed a piece of steel, machined a blank, gear cut-hobbed it and now I just have to drill a bunch of holes and also mill it.

Milled and drilled the sprockster, haven't drilled the mount holes yet but I'll wait until I get the caliper and machine the wheel hub etc, got a Ducati rear from Ebay which I think will work and then have to make the caliper carrier. I'll probably Nitride the sprockster and maybe Zinc plate it, not sure yet.

Next up is to attempt to make a rear fender.

Got the caliper in which I think will work ok, I''l make a spacer to widen it to allow it to straddle the rotor/sprocket which is straight forward enough.
Drew the caliper carrier and printed it to scale and dummied it up to make sure it won't interfere with the caliper edges etc and all seems ok so far.

Been busy with work etc but now back into it again at last.
Cut the calliper arm and just need to drill and tap to mount it.

Going to attempt to make my fenders with some form rollers, so today I machined one part being the male and hopefully I can finish the female concave roller tomorrow. The picture probably doesn't give any size reference but it is a massive chunk of steel.
The I'll have to fab up a frame to run the rollers in, sure hope it works after all the machining!

Machined the female concave roller, I'll have to harden them and then finish the bearing journals but otherwise done.
Now I have to make a frame to hold, control and drive the rollers. It would be sooooo much easier to buy a fender but where's the fun in that?

The fabrication effort on this bike is amazing. Some cool metal working tools - are these tools at your place of business or your home workshop?
