  1. whole project looking good!!! did i missed what kind of rear shocks are you using? I have a 116 just started to get going after more than 25 years in storage...
  2. Sorry for your loss.... If time exists in heaven, Do you still rise with the sun? Do you and Mom share breakfast Before your day has begun? Can the heavens hear your laughter As you sit and reminisce About the time we had together And other people that you miss? And Daddy, do you still take walks Along heaven's seas? And when you gaze upon the surf, Do you remember walks with me? Are your standing with those brave young men Upon its perfect shores? Finally by their sides again, Your comrades from the war. Do you gather with your family Beneath heaven's glow? And gaze upon those mountains still That once you called your home. Is music all around you, All those songs you held so dear? Do you and Mom still sing together, The way you did when you were here? Do you ever have long talks with God About those left behind? Do you tell him all the stories Of all our grand and treasured times? I think that heaven must be grateful To have you there each day, To bring your easy laughter And your silly sense of play. And I'm sure that God already knows The special father you had been And how I wish that you were here To guide my way again. But I carry you inside my heart. You are never far from me. I see you in my smile And in who I grew to be. And I'm sure that on this Father's Day God will help you celebrate All those dads who changed the world with love. What a party that will make!
  3. So if i get this correct ... that's the mold you are going to use to build it with carbon fiber right? you will keep posting pictures of the progress I hope:-) So from the seat mold you then use the original tank to build it or the mini tank? is that mini tank form a particular pit bike like a KTM 50? what kind of fiberglass you use to make the mold? is just looks so clean and thin !!!!
  4. Well finished the fiberglass project... been a learning experience:-) Planning on building a 2nd one. I didn't use a hard surface for the fiberglass to sit on , my first mistake... I had plastic wrap so there is some waves.. and use filler to take waves out.. I was going to put on high density foam for a seat... but after riding it for a while seems that is fine...
