Talk about it goes here thread
Thanks bud.I've spent about 10% of today welding and the other 90% grinding them down to not look shite.
Then I look at your welding and want to cry stunning work mate
Ya got a good point. Never been a fan of cleaning my bikes much and I don't really favor changing that now. How much farther are you thinking?I'd be tempted to leave the rear fender a little longer. I know you're not building this for a daily ride, but cleaning tire spray out from between cooling fins is a major pain in the ass.
I came from the build thread to ask you exactly what Yan said but I see your point. Could you cut the speed holes, then slightly curve the sheet to give more stiffness, or do some kind of rolled edge?I'm actually hoping that I wont have to flare the holes. The holes will be progressively different sizes and I'd have to make multiple dimple dies to suit each hole. I know strength may be an issue with a flat sheet so I'll have to see just how bad it is and go from there. The fender is heavy gauge so that should help.
