Speedo mount fab. 40mm long tubing with 1-2mm wall thickness, 95mm OD. Two builders tabs from LBC.
Cut tabs to length and weld in place. You dont get to see a picture of my welding, its a heinous crime against fabrication. So heres me filing away the damage and making it look pretty.
Chrome comes later, after I've made sure my crappy welding doesn't break. But there it is.
This is what happen when you take tight corners on an unfamiliar road too fast at night. Correction.. this is what happens when I do it, racing around The Esplanade by Owhiro Bay in Welly on saturday night. Sliding, sparks, broken sidecover and rashed up mufflers. Good for a laugh if nothing else..
Despite having to remove the whole exhaust to get the cover off, it was a fairly simple operation. Off to the welders!
I made it to my first Cold Kiwi last weekend and the first thing I noticed was that it wasnt that cold. Not that it dissappointed me at all. Me and Eli got ridiculously boozed, we brought BYO against the rules, didnt know until we got there.. naughty us eh? Eli crashed out fairly early (lightweight) and I wandered about in a drunken daze for a few more hours and lost my wallet. Dont remember much apart from trying to cook a feed before going to sleep but eating mostly warm raw meat. I guess thats why there was a pile of vomit with raw meat in it outside the tent on saturday.
I spent all saturday hibernating in my tent and missed all the events, which probably would have been good.
I did overhear outside "Is that the blue sporty that went up the hill climb?"
"Nah this dudes been asleep all day."
Had no money for drinking supplies or gas, luckily had enough juice to make it home.
You can bet I'll be back next year.
