XS Update week 43

8:41 PM Limpe Iven 0 Comments





Found some time on saturday to work on my project.



After expierencing the fire thing at my girlfriends house+having the flu, spending time with my tools was a good thing.
A welder finally came to help me finishing the stainless-steel exhausts, i can help myself with MIG welding but TIG welding is not my thing, did learn a thing or 2 this day.
Added a small sissybar wich will hold my license plate, thought about lighting in the rear and welded brackets for the headlight.
As you may know, i build my bike at my friends place, he runs a paintshop for customized cars, ricers unfortunately, but he's got a lot of electronic gadgets in stock, found some really cool and very small LED lights, man these little things are damn' brite, best part of it is that these LED's are more shockresistant than conventional light bulbs.




I searched the internet for a cool solution for my exhaust, found some nice stuff but wanted to make something different. Most of the pictures i saw all had the right cylinder exhaust wrapped around the frame, all the guys i asked said it couldn't be done otherwise.
I-crazy about porkerstyle pipes- wanted to run 2 pipes above each other and straight backwards, having one of the headers run outside the frame was no option.
Did manage to run the pipes inside the frame, took me some time to find out but i managed.
Looks pretty cool, polishing the pipes will take some time i guess...

Next is to mount a dummy oil-tank, weld some more brackets, find a nice brakelight for the rear and it will be about time to think about paint and colours.

Excuse me for the crappy phone-camera pics.

Finally, my first posting on this blog, wanted to post some a long time ago...

Today due to the yearly flu (always around october when autumn is kickin in, leafs are falling and wind starts blowing hard from the east) i found the time to work this blog-thing out.


I'll be posting back in time since there was a lot of cool stuff i shot during this year.

Maybe next year i'll be working chronologic, if i can find the time.

Fire in the hole !

1:51 AM Limpe Iven 0 Comments





October 16.
While taking a shower my girlfriend sees smoke coming into her bathroom, at first she thinks it's the neigbour BBQ-ing some, one nanosecond later she thinks it's a little early for a BBQ so she starts to investigate.
After seeing smoke coming into the bathroom from the small storage closet behind this space she starts to yell a classic frase ....fire fire fire fire........
Several minutes later the fire department arrives so i hand over my extinguish-attemps to the pro's. Must say that i felt rather amateuristic lying on the ground in my underwear with nothing but the small shower hose as equipment. We did -however- think clear and turned of the main electrical switch.
The pro's did make a remark on not turning the main gas-line off, but hey, i'm not the pro..did what felt right at the time

Conclusion; a heating system of 22 years old needed replacement some time ago, clearly written down by the maintenance guy who wrote this recommendation on a service note last march.
Domein, owner of the house my girl lives in never did take action in replacing the heating system, thanks guys for jeopardizing the life of my girlfriend.

But the baddest part of it all is that i had to be on the street with morning hair....

Seriously, fire is not cool, it makes a mess and leaves nothing but trouble.
