My battery box.  The tin box on the inside will be powder coated to match the bike to produce some contrast to the stainless perforated steel outer box.  The foam liner is adhesive backed and will be stuck inside to protect the battery.

Just in front of the engine on a horizontal bracket I already have on.  All of my wires can be hidden this way, including tail lights and head light. I will post a pic after awhile.

Not sure if I like the look of the perforated steel or not!  It only wraps around it so I could stay with just the inner box. Probably will look quite different once the box has color on it.

Yeah it will be the other way after color.  Just set it on for pic.  No bolts yet.

My kicker plate and shaft is done and the steel is on the way for the kick starter!  So chips will be flying again soon!

After some delays I am back on my kicker.  I was told that to have it cut out via an EDM would be costly as they are quite slow especially at the thickness I have. They sent me to a water jet guy. He said he was two months behind but I left him a copy of the print to quote it anyhow but that was two weeks ago!. Mostly I was just trying to utilize a different method for fun.  Ended up back on the mill.  I used a piece of A2 tool steel which will give it some physical integrity. From what I have read A2 tempers at low temperatures and maybe it will assume some tempering in the powder coating process. I have about 4 hours in it now and still have about that much to go I think. Comparison picture shows obvious work left. In reality I will have about 20 hours into the entire set-up making it pretty easy to understand Wayne's pricing.  Planning on staying on it so I am ready for the Plain City meet in May.  I will get it powder coated and also the battery box. Just want to group together all of my stray pieces for powder coating. By then I will have the 'easy-on' tachometer installed.

Tom's work is awesome!

We are sitting here getting snowed on again!  I can't wait for the nice weather so I can take one of my bikes for a ride.

Back at the kicker this weekend. Getting closer!  Short foot pin is just for trial fit until right one comes in mail this week. Plus I will be cutting down the round part when I have secured the correct length for it. Then press in bronze bushings and hone to fit the shaft.
