Finlandese w bobber build Antworten

hello, greetings from Finland!
I'm new to the forum, and a new Kawasaki owner. I'm building a motorcycle for my daughter, and maybe a little for myself too.
I bought the project from a friend who left the work unfinished.

here in the world there are no exact rules regarding the construction of a motorcycle, so the frame has been modified and the carburettors and the electrical system will be completely new because the entire wiring harness was opened and some wires were cut.

my German language skills are zero, maybe something in the mobile.de search I have learned a few words.
if it's okay, I'll ask here about things related to carburetors and electricity.

I have built a few xs650 and harley ironhead motorcycles from start to finish. in our garage you can find the most common metalworking equipment.

Hello Mikko - Welcome to the Forum,

that looks very old school.
For better understanding you can use the google translator. There you can even translate from Finnish to German.

There is enough technical expertise here in the forum. You will surely be able to help

This looks really awsome!

I think here are many people which speak and understand english, so no problem to ask your questins in english, finnish might be a bigger problem.

Same day i was pulling out in the container and pushed on to lift i made seat pipes with help of my friend.

At the day two i have short garage night. I made frame ends and cross pipe between seat tubes. Fehling steeringbar arrived and it look very nice. Dont have no need to modify it, maybe shorten 10mm at ends…
Rear shocks came but those was totaly crap and i lose 80€ (used progressive suspension shocks)

#9 RE: Finlandese w bobber build Antworten

on the third day i got another rear shocks, these were the never used burly slammer shocks that were for sale at the flea market.
the shocks were just the right size and all I had to do was make the right size bushings so they fit perfectly

In the last minutes I decided to make a model for the bottom of the bench. I ran out of decent cardboard, so I had to make a model out of a cardboard box

can someone explain why information from 1,2 and 3 gears goes to the ignition control box? why according to the electrical diagram are there two pick ups for ignition?

The W650 was originally intended as a cruiser. In gears 1, 2 and 3, the power is somewhat reduced. You can easily disable this sensor by disconnecting the corresponding cables. Only the cable for the idle indicator light should be connected.

Thank you for the answer. I know little about these ”new electrics”.
my (summer)daily runner dont have this kind of functions. Imo those are unnessary things.

#13 RE: Finlandese w bobber build Antworten

a small window of time came for the construction and I was able to get better cardboard for drawing the model. copying the model onto a 2mm steel sheet and cutting it with an angle grinder.

I used a press to bend the bottom of the bench, which didn't work out perfectly, well, this was the first time I bent sheet metal with a press, so I didn't expect too much.

I planned to attach the lower end of the rear fender, maybe it is also the attachment of the bench, I don't know yet the idea is still mushing

next time i have to make a bench attachment and possibly start planning a box for the motor controller and other electrical parts

#14 RE: Finlandese w bobber build Antworten

today in the garage I designed an electrical box, I'll try to make it by pressing out of sheet metal.

I cut the shapes out of plywood and put a piece of sheet metal between the plywood and press it into the shape with a press. maybe it will work or not.

then had to modify the rear brake axle. the return spring retainer is too long and catches on the battery case.
I took the axle off and put it on the lathe where I drilled a nipple for the vaseline, it's easier to grease it with the nipple than you can press the grease with a press.

the holder was easy to shorten, first cutting and then sanding off the welding residue. then mounting the bracket to the right height and welding on the back side

#15 RE: Finlandese w bobber build Antworten

little progress made in the garage.
I tried to press the sheet into shape. the sheet folded almost as expected, the shape was a little wrong so I have to make changes to the battens.

For the rear fender, I turned the threaded bushings to which the bolts can be attached nicely.
the attachment points were slightly wider than the width of the fender, so I made the attachment points extra thick.
I spot welded them on and the final attachment is done with tig welding.

the lower edge of the fender is fastened with shackle pieces. I liked the shape and it was easily accessible
