General Motorcycle Discussion / Re: Don't wrap your pipes

I'll be wrapping mine in a couple months and I'll keep people posted on the results. I have chrome V&H headers that I picked up for cheap due to surface rust anyways so I could care less if it makes them worse. It's a great test header

Did you notice any difference in heat after they were wrapped?

Keep your eyes out for the euro tank. I picked one up for $30, my neighbor got a hold of one too, but he paid an arm and a leg. They're a direct bolt on and uses the NH petcock. Good luck!

Those will fit with the same amount of modification as any older tank. You'll have to cut the mounts off the frame and weld new ones in a different spot. I personally don't like those tanks on our frames. It never seems to sit right. The older 70s cb tanks look great on our bike though, but need the same modifications

Looks good. How does it handle with those low, short bars? Probably a different riding position?
Are you going to leave the space under the seat empty, or put something cool there?
Thanks! It handles great. Steering is much tighter and the riding position is quite a bit lower. It could use some front Springs though to help tighten it up. I'll most likely keep the space under the seat empty. I like that there's nothing there!

Can you give me a source for your tank decals?  Mine really needs a respray and I'm thinking of changing it up completely rather than going with the stock look.
Those are actually factory logos with factory paint

Looks really good!
Thanks man! I cruised it over to cars and coffee with no intention of getting any attention and had a lot of people interested in it. Who'd a thought?

A couple shots from this weekend

Mine won't start when cold with no choke. I put the choke to full ON and it fires right up, with no throttle

The rear shocks and oil cooler will swap right over. If you get get your hands on a set of front forks and wheel apparently they'll slide into the NH triples. I have a tank also, it's a direct bolt on.

Thanks Gordon! It's been a fun build.
Back when I was looking for a NH to buy, I talked to a girl that had one for sale. She had short shocks on the rear, a modified stock seat and had lowered the front a bit also. Her bike was all stock other than that. She lowered it due to her hieght and didn't mention anything bad about the ride afterwards

I'm pretty sure my rear shocks are about 1/2 shorter than stock (they were installed before I bought the bike) but I also lowered the front by sliding the fork tubes up. No big difference in cornering other than the bike feels much lower now

That's a cool setup you got going. What is that tank off of? The cool thing about these bikes, is that there isn't a lot of people building them yet.

When are you moving to cali?

Thanks smoojee! Yeah, I ended up cutting out the rear frame. I tried to keep the original frame lines, but the stock frame just didn't end up working out. Too much drop in the center, and too much rake in the back. It's an odd frame for sure

Just copy and paste the "IMG" link of your picture from a hosting site.

What are those rear sets off of? Did you just drill them into the frame?
