Re: My Hot Rod bike build

Thanks John.
My first attempt at pipes didn't turn out like I wanted or needed so I bought some.

Re: My Hot Rod bike build

I've always had a thing for the old drag bikes of the 50's, 60's and 70's so, this is my nod to them.

Re: My Hot Rod bike build

After I got the long block modified and fitted where I wanted it, I tackled the ignition, exhaust and fuel.

Re: Attic joists flex noticeably under my weight - implications for construction?

As you go along and add rafters, I would tie them in like you asked. It will stiffen them up where your working and after, you'll have a stiffer roof/ceiling for very little investment.
