Continuing ruminations on the BSA redesign

I'm at a loss for words at the moment. No reason save for the fact that I've been steeped in numbers lately. Anyway, pictures of nice Oil-In-Frame British motorcycles. Three BSA's and a Triumph.
I don't know if the Triumph pieces all work together or not. But then again it's a lovely motorcycle and I keep going back to it. I like it. The BSA on the bottom has some nice bits but the seat doesn't work on that bike. They've got their peanut butter and chocolate all mixed up. Needs a Rocket Gold Star seat.  I'm still working on the design of our sidecover.

Thinking Beesas again


I've been working on the BSA sidecover project again. I ran across this treatment this morning at Pipeburn. Obviously not a BSA but the frames are essentially the same from this period. It certainly wouldn't compliment the aesthetic we're shooting for but an interesting method nonetheless. Hose management is interesting as well.




I'm a little further along than this photo shows but my progress is slow. I actually made a paper mockup the other day that looks promising. Given the time I may make another based on a different idea. After that, I'm not sure. I may make one from foam with which the Chief can work or I might bang one out of some aluminum flashing I have just to see how it will look.

Wayne and Eddie

Both pics from El Corra Motors blog

Yeah, been a bit of silence here lately. The time is about to change and the weather is warming up...a bit. I'm starting to think bikes again. Not that I wasn't. Just a little more up front.

I happened across a couple of very nice replica racers over at El Corra Motors this morning. The matching clogs are a nice touch. A little more inspiration to the Chief for his Kawasaki project.

So...Here's what I'm Thinking



There's a long way to go from here and I still haven't quite finished the wheeling machine for Frankie. I'll get there... Anyway, I like where it's going but I don't have much time to elaborate. I colored it green as Unk mentioned he was thinking British Racing Green or dark blue. I'm a fan of green but I'm not ruling out blue. More to come. Cheers.
