more work on airbox

OK took some time while the tank glue-up dried to finish and test out the fit of the air intake adapter. Worked pretty good but I am going to have to put a slight "elbow" for the inlet flange to orient the air filter a little upwards and a little inwards for better tire clearance. I'm wondering if 6,1/2" long filter is really necessary but If I can get it to fit, then no worries.


  1. Wow. That's kind of the star bit of the bike, right there. Nice work.

    This bike (I'm aware I'm not reading in real time, of course) is coming together just wonderfully.

  2. thanks, scott - yes, i actually agree with you: the airbox that I made is probably the best functional adaptation that I made for this bike. it seems to work fine, today, too.
