it all began when my bro got the idea to build a bike that was like a can am spyder and thus the project began.
The whole thing took me maybe a month and half , which i think isn`t bad considering all the distractions I have ..
WARNING.......working with power tools and metal is dangerous ....don`t even try to blame me if you hurt yourself!!!
Step 1: Tools & Material
grinder (bench and angle)also safety goggles ,fragments of hot metal in the eyes is no fun at all !!!!
drill (hand and press)
wrenches (both metric and American)
and anything i left out get it ..the more the better!!!
Bikes ,bikes ,and more bikes.. most towns have a crazy old bike guy. (I might be that guy in my town). that`s the best place to find bikes to chop up.
free scrap metal wherever you find it helps...i found a snowblower on craigslist free!!! with running motor!!! sweet
or if you wanna go all fancy big budget build ..go to most any hardware store and get tubes stuff there
Step 2: The Core&Arms
step2. lower A arms ..pretty easy to make . just chopped up bike tubing smashed flat on one end at an angle.weld together to make a V then add your - for the A
step3. more tube cut at short lengths ..weld to end. simple enough right !! let`s move on then!!
Step 3: Upper Arms &and Steering
step5. steering tubes with metal plates welded to them in a parallel fashion , the height of the plate must match that of the cube
we made before.you will notice the mistake i made when comparing the pic below to future pics
Step 4: Mounting Brakets ,nuts,bolts,nylon Spacers
Step 5: Weld Stuff Together
step8. not really much to explain here just weld it!
Step 6: Wheels ,shocks
step10. for shocks i visited my local motorcycle boneyard ,also found my tie rods there off an atv . all cost 45 ...real easy to put on,cut,drill,weld.boom your done!!!
Step 7: Steering
Step 8: The Near Future
Motorization.. this is for sure just gotta get the money !!!
Skis...oh yeah this will be turned into a makeshift snow machine come winter time!!!!
