was lost in work i mean the work of bike didn't find time to update.
Now let me come to the problems i faced with the bike.
you guys must be knowing that to accommodate a Fatter Tyre i had changed the swing arm. and had run the bike for 2-3 days with the fatter Tyre. after that new parts were fabricated like the rear mudguard and the front mudguard, Everything was painted and the result was outstanding.
however the other day when the fitting was going on i noticed that the rear tyre was sitting at angle. it wasn't sitting straight.
checked thoroughly and found that the swing arm that was purchased was a bit bent may be due to transportation or parcel service negligence don't know. The bike was riding fine however there was a lot of pressure on the chain.
so dismantled it and went to the lathe shop and got the bend rectified.
2nd problem: after the bend was sorted i found that the space between the sidewalls of the tire and the chain was too less at instances it did touch the tire.
so dismantled it once again.checked and found that we had changed the tire to broader once but hadn't changed the rear axle bolt bush ( the bush that fills the space between the axle rod and swing arm.) to be of stock size i mean that bush was made to accommodate the stock Tyre. All this issues where hidden if the Tyre was sitting slant
as we had fitted it with broader wheels that bush had to be machined.
i know i sound stupid i should have checked it earlier when we started the project. at that time i completely had overlooked it and it looked OK with the stock classic mudguard sitting over it. couldn't notice this change when before painting had assembled it with the stock rear mudguard in its place. My bad!!!
so now doing the machining job and bike should be ready in a couple of days.
its been sleepless nights for 2-3 days thinking about the bike. Loosing patience, Getting frustrated sometimes,
took 2-3 days off work spent time leisurely didn't even think about the bike.
will start afresh tomorrow.
will bee posting some teasers before the final product is ready..
