So, I have decided to make a few add ons to the basic frame.
Yesterday I made some "motor attachment plates" ...not the actual motor mount plate, as that will be
welded into the frame.
Today, I made up the prototype for the "bolt in pedal kit"

Oh.....and Yesterday, while dropping off some stuff at the recyclers, I had an empty trailer
and I was only two blocks away from the Ducati Dealers. So I swung on by to see if the had
any more shipping crates out back (as I had not been there for about 10 months) and yes!
I came home with 2 more!smiling bouncing smiley

Don't recall, but are those peddles from Vintage Kart Co.?
And, what's the plate with the four holes in it between your
feet? Tach-Oil pressure-Amps-Temp????

I'm always up for more raw material. You never know when it might
come in handy. Now you got me itchin' to look up a Ducati dealer
around my home town and see if I can claim his scrap iron. If not
an "Ice Racer", I could always use another bench or stand or....whatever.

You have seen that plate before.........it is the rack my that was "too heavy" for the Miller.
I made another one that was an once lighter!confused smiley
And yes, free material is wonderful. I built all of the upper structure on my CK trailer with
material scrounged fro the Ducati Dealer.
Good Roads

Tks Vince, now I remember seeing those in Dennis T's videos.
Can't hardly buy the material for five bucks Woody, that looks like a great buy.
BMI has some pretty good deals. My brake discs were a surplus item from
BMI. All ground flat with the cooling and mounting holes drilled And again,
just the cold rolled steel plasma cut discs would have cost me way more.
So I bought a few extras.

Sunday morning breakfast!!!! Came in from the barn and my "big old wife" was
still cutting ZZZZzzzzzz's So I threw some bacon on to fry, got a fresh pot of coffee
goin', shredded a spud and fried up a couple eggs....that got her and the mutt out of
the sack.....for a little while.
Now........maybe I can get back to the important things, like the Riley springs! Just
as soon as I clean up the breakfast dishes!!!!!

Woody, would it not have been a whole lot easier to get a length of 3 x 1?

I have lots of 1" x 3"
But these things are ready made with front floor pan, seat pan, chain pan, etc.
Just some relocating........and they were Free!

Made the pieces for 5 sets of frame horns to be used on the Stevenson Style Frames, that will use
Semi Elliptic front suspension (Parallel Leaf Springs).
These were very time consuming to fabricate due to the number of pieces required.
They also ate up two full frame rails ( one shipping create for 5 sets), but I had two rails that had
slight damage for this portion of the conversion.
Just more pieces added to the pile of modified components required before I start welding.
Good Roads

And Thanks for following this thread, if you have any questions just fire away.
I hope others will use this method for their own builds, as I am doing this as a reference to follow,
NOT trying to make a business out of it..........I am Retired!eye popping smiley
