PostSubject: vs800 bobber build   Sat Nov 25, 2017 11:53 am

Hello, so i finally got started with my bobber build, havent done much. So far just striped it down a bit and installed new blinkers and headlight




Tought about leaving the original seat pan with as little foam on it as possible and add gel to it later. 

Looked at it and said to my self "Sh*t, i need a spring saddle" - so this is what happened next:

i also got a new rear fender for choping and new noname pipes:


Alot of things need to be done 
new handlebars ( a few pictures up - side picture of bike -  you can see the prototype of my new handlebars that i made)
saddle fixing points and gel+leather
chop the rear and front fender
new electric loom, i got a motogadget  programmable computer for running all my ligths and electyronics
new upper fork plate thingy to witch the handlebar bolts on
new brakelines
repaint everything includign pipes+engine.

great look, look forward to seeing the build, just done a similar build and love the finished effect.

I have the chrome version of the pipes, they are LOUD. And check your baffle has wadding as mine come without. Not that it makes much difference!

Hello, thanks for replys guys. 
I had a try with google sketchup and modeled a 3 switch cluster for 1inch bar.
I got original motogadget's housing but did'nt like the idea of 1 switch facing towards the front of the bike.
So i made a 3d file and my co-worker has a 3d printer add those up and you get this:

Its made out of PLA and as you can see it needs a bit work to get it smooth and im really surprised how strong that stuff is. You really cant bend / brake it with bare hands.
This is what i generated from sketchup:

A bit offtopic too: Can anyone tell me why the hell cant i see any pictures posted in other posts and topics from users? I mean i can read the text and everything but where should be a picture is just blank black space, nohting.
I really want to see others at work but cant see sh*t.
Thanks in advance!

It's probably because they were originally uploaded through photobucket which has now gone kaput through sheer greed.

Depends on what browser you use, but Google photobucket fix plugins...
