Hoi Hofman,

Looks good Did you put the tape in to water before you wrapt it around the pipes?
What is the price per meter for the tape, like it to put on the Guzzi to.

I put it in water indeed. Doing that makes sure that the tape is very tight aroung the pipes and the irretation on your skin is less.
But use gloves when you use it Laughing

For the Dutch people here:

Mooi voor over een oude uitlaat of voor race use.

Uitlaatband in diverse afmetingen en kleuren.
Wit 50 mm breed rol van 10 mtr voor 22,50
Bruin 50 mm breed rol van 30 mtr voor 59,90
Zwart 50 mm breed rol van 10 mtr voor 32,50
Zwart 50 mm breed rol van 30 mtr voor 67,50

Het witte band en het bruine band zijn keramische band.
Het zwarte band is een band waar grafiet in is opgenomen.

Tegen een meerprijs van 7 euro kun je een set slangklemmen mee bestellen.
Deze klemmen zijn voor het vastzeten van het band om de uitlaat of het spruitstuk.
Het set bevat 3 mtr band en 8 klemmen.
Zie foto 3!

Voor vragen of meer fotos bel of mail!

Mooi voor op je: eigenbouw zelfbouw bobber chopper hardtail oldskool oldscool oldschool old en ook voor race use.

Finally got the seat back.
Could be ready earlier, but I had no hury with it.
Today I will make something to put the seat on the frame, with some sort of box where I can put some stuff in. Mobile phone, money, spare parts, tools Wink

I've always understood that tape increases the risk of corrosion. HEats and moisture gets trapped and your pipes start to rust.

But it does look very cool!

It is indeed just for the looks.

About the rust issue: water or waterdamp will stay between the exhaust and the tape, so it will rust harder.

About performance: Not really. The thought is that the exhaust flow will be better when the exhaust gas are hot. If you insulate your pipes the gas will remain hot until the end off the pipe. And if the flow of the exhaust gas is high, this flow will help the engine to suck exhaust gases out of your cilinder, so that the cilinder is filled just with clean fuel en air, and not with still some exhaust gases in it.
Exhaust gases will not burn twice in your cilinder so if there is only fresh stuff in your cilinder you got more performance. I don't think I will notice it

This saturday I want to make a box for my seat. The idea is to bolt the box on the frame en slide the seat over it. This way the seat can't move and I have a box to store my phone, tools, spare parts Cool

i had some foam left from the seat so this I will be using for my box.



To make the contours I but the seat on top of the foam and with a stift I made the contours.



Then, with a handsaw (for sawing wood) I cut the rough lines. After that I used I sandgrinder the finish it of with a lot, lot, lot lot of sanding Sleep



At the rear I made a hole. I want to use the plastic fender and as you can see, it rises above the frame



But after, again, some grinding it fits





After that I sanded it overall a bit more. After all, the polyester will come over the positive and the polyester has to fit within the seat.
I also will be using some alu. For mounting my tail light and numberplate. but also for mounting the plastic fender and another mounting point.


Then: the polyester:


This will be all for now. I hope I can finish it this saturday. Make some pictures off it

Finally the seat mounting is some kind of ready. I still need to paint the box black, but I will wait with that after I have made some kind of taillight and numberplate bracket.

Saturday I will go to Rocket Caferacerparts to get a replica megaton Laughing


I also got a bracket for mounting my numberplate. Still got to fabricate a taillight bracket.
Post some pictures soon. Maybe this evening.

Oh, and I ordered steel brakelines for my front brake. I hope it is a big improvement.
Has anybody experience with this?

Okey, got my megaton at home Very Happy
Tought that I could mount it saterday to, but unfortunatly I did not have any more time.
Today I finished the tail.
First made a litte drawing for the taillight bracket.


Then cut it out and grinded it.


After that I had to bend it 90 degrees.





And luckely it worked the first time Very Happy


firts mounting with off-course ducktape!!


And the final mounting with numberplate



Now I'm painting the bracket and the polyester box black,

Very nicely done Hofman, clever how you bended the mounting plate without the proper bending tool!

Paint one half of the box:


And one of these days I will drill holes in my Raask brake and shift levers. also planning to do something else with the ugly mount for the rearbrake pedal. Maybe cutting off the lever and cut a new one that is flat en weld it to the existing round thing with the teeth. Is this a good idea?





Also did some drilling to my chainprotector. What do you guys think? continue with it?

If I let my drillingmachine go all the way, I even have holes in my rims. And that are not the holes for the spokes Laughing
