Re: Clean and Simple II Virago

Awesome build as usual!

Would love to see some shots of the CNC machines you use to make these works of art.

Re: Clean and Simple II Virago

That's it. I'm buying myself a TIG welder for Christmas.

They're incredible. If they don't have it, it's probably not made.

Also: those adapters are art dude.
Hey thanks!
I have been ordering from McMaster Carr for years and I have no idea what I would do without them. I was just wondering if there was a metric bike specific fastener supplier as the metric selection is more limited. But you are right if they don't have it it isn't made lol

I will most likely end up making the fasteners.

I am glad you like the adapters! They will get spruced up some before anodizing

Hey, thanks! I will try and take more shots of the parts in the machines, but they are almost all made in a Wasino cnc lathe

Gotcha, yeah. I've never once needed something I couldn't find there. They also have an Atlanta warehouse, so my orders are almost always here next-day

Re: Clean and Simple II Virago

Fastenal is also a good source

there should be a local store near you or order online

although the last time I went to Fastenal I was disappointed, I was trying to find a bulk source for Honda snowblower shear pins and they didn't have any bolts that were weak enuf

Re: Clean and Simple II Virago

hey guys,
I made the mistake of not checking bolt avalibility before designing a couple of these parts. =( i was able to find mostly what i need locally. Orobold also has what i need but for 10 stainless bolts it is $60. So i will most likely end up making some fasteners instead.

Got another small update.

I wanted to be able to brace the swingarm support and tie it into the main frame. so i made some couplers here:


they would go together like this:


I got the rear shock mount welded to the frame as well as the brace mount however.. i didnt like how it looked and how it worked.


So i decided to go a different route that i think looks alot better and is alot stronger.


it looks a lot more thought out in my opinion and is much stronger even though it was easier to make in many ways


So, the frame is all welded up, the swinger is braced and the shock is mounted.


I am going to get my front tire mounted on Saturday and will be able to get this beast on its own feet for the first time. then i can design my subframe and then it will be going back up on the table to make the new swinger and rear hub, as well as the subframe. Once that is done then i can start on the body-work.
