Rear brake pedal

Posted: March 29, 2015 in 1960s BSA Hardtail

Fabbed up a brake pedal for the bobber.  It is actually two pedals with one end flipped upside down.  Then the actually part the foot rests on was cut of and flipped around.  Looks pretty nice!

Seat on and motor mock

An update of pics from a little while ago.  Used a leafspring for the seat suspension on the bobber, which holds up very well when bouncing on it.  Have to clean it up still, but it works very well.  Also got a shot of a mock with the motor in the frame.

Footpegs mounted

Used some old footpegs off a Suzuki GS550.  Had to make spacers for one of the mounting holes, and the let side peg had to be cut off and readjusted, but they work pretty well!

After having to clean the carbs a bunch, it turns out it was due to the liner in the tank falling apart. All the bits and rust behind the liner kept clogging up the system.

Here is what was removed with the aid of some really long pliers and patience. This was the old liner.
