Indian board track racer tribute.




I built this a couple years ago from an old Schwinn 10spd.  My original plan was to make the tank out of metal.  The cone shapes on the end were keeping me from finishing it.  I got the idea a few nights ago to 3D print a tank!  I had to print it in several sections because of the limited size of my printer which is 8x8x10.  What you see in the pictures is the tank still in several pieces and raw plastic.  I plan to epoxy some strong magnets inside the sections and then glue them all together.  The magnets will hold it onto the bike.
The orignal post on this bike.  My latest creation.

RIP David Bowie.

                               Another legend gone.  Ziggy stardust and the spiders from mars was the first CD I purchased.  Only saw him play once at the Palace of Auburn Hills.  It was the tour he did with NIN.

Velocity stack for the Benelli 125.



I have been struggling to find a replacement for the stock air cleaner.  The Dellorto ME 18BS carb has a funky design.  I purchased a 3D printer the week before Chistmas.  After a few test prints I came up with this dual stack design.  I also made a single stack version.  I will get some pictures of that later.  This part is in its raw form.  I was thinking of priming and painting it silver but, I kind of like it raw.
