Re: Ok- building a bitsa.

Jason,

Do you still need me to make a rear tank mount for you? I've gotten sidetracked with other stuff and forgotten about it...

Re: Ok- building a bitsa.

Well- Ive just run out of time to work on this bike this year. It sits in the back of the shop at this point. I am hoping to be able to work on it over the Christmas break.

I am still in need of a rear fuel tank bracket (kit tank) and a few other small bits to finish this project up.

Re: Ok- building a bitsa.

One of these days I'll get around to making a rear tank bracket for you. I'm backed up on some other stuff right now and those are still on my to-do list.

Re: Ok- building a bitsa.

Well- Ive just started working on this bike again. Been really busy with the business for a few years, and this just got neglected. I have some interesting parts coming over the next two weeks, so once I get them sorted and installed, Ill post pics. Im trying to find dimensions for those linkage hats- hoping Jeff still has that all these years later.

I always hoped that would be a re-start of this build

Re: Ok- building a bitsa.

Awesome seeing these works of art come back to life. +1 to wanting to see it finished.

And if you still need to make that rear tank mount, is there any chance of getting an extra made?

I have never made any of the rear tank brackets. I found an extra one that I didn't remember having, so I didn't need to make one for myself. I can get you some measurements, if you still need them, when I have time.

Okay, I measured these things again. The bolts that pass through them are nominally 12mm, they actually measure 11.9mm, or .471", so just make the ID of the hats slightly larger.

There are two overall lengths, 49.1mm (1.93") and 41.05mm (1.617").

The width of the "hats" on the ends measure 2.15mm (.084') and 2.05mm (.081') for the long and short ones, respectively. No idea why they are different, maybe manufacturing tolerances and I didn't measure all four of them. The outside diameter of the hats was 26.8mm (1.056') and 26.95mm (1.061'), for the long and short ones, respectively. I don't think this diameter matters much. The outside diameter of the long portion of the tubes is 16.95mm (.668) and this is probably a critical dimension. Obviously, this needs to be compatible with the bearings used.

The material used was steel, of an alloy suitable to being a bearing inner race.

Thanks dude- very helpful, as always! Now to find some material- the Ti ive got is a pain to machine. Finding steel might be a better call.

Hoping I can finish up this part and get the chassis back on wheels.

Re: Ok- building a bitsa.

Can't wait to see pics. Bikes like yours are the inspiration for me building my bitsa.

There doesn't appear to be too many bikes/builds like this around nowdays - all the main guys seemed to have moved on. Keep it up!

True. As I said in another thread about CCMHunt, its unfortunate that many people have gone elsewhere to discuss their hobby. Maybe with a bit of new posts some of them will be interested in chiming in.
