update my Magnum Build Blog (Seat & Other Stuff)

Well i got to work on my moped some more tonight and i actually got to ride it for a bit before the damn flywheel nut backed off and came flying off (which i lost and have to order a new one). and speaking of that if anyone knows where i can get one locally it would be great.

Today I did some rewiring, installed the rear brake cable, shaped and mounted the seat and a few other odds and ends.

I have pictures of it here

Sweet shocks, I think I sold you those!

Re: update my Magnum Build Blog (Seat & Other Stuff)

If you're doing all that work on the wood for the seat why not add some padding and a cover?

Why are you taking all the pics, and your dad doing all the work?

Re: update my Magnum Build Blog (Seat & Other Stuff)

Idk, i might end up padding it.

he's not my dad, he's a friend and he's the fabricator, he can build or fix anything.

Trust me, I have done plenty on this ped :). It's nice to have a friend like him who's able to make up for my lack of knowledge.

Re: update my Magnum Build Blog (Seat & Other Stuff)

if he can do anything then make that seat out of metal. otherwise you have a glorified skateboard seat.

I think its looking nice, Bill has a sick set up. You can tell its a real mans workshop everything is rusty and worn. I will tip my next beer to Bill.

Re: update my Magnum Build Blog (Seat & Other Stuff)

congratulate bill on his magnum build for me.

congratulations to you for taking 6 pictures showing us him fabricating a part that most of us have 80 of in our basements.

looks like a nice build, i hope you're having that dude actually TEACH you some stuff instead of just letting him do everything while you sit around snapping pictures...

Re: update my Magnum Build Blog (Seat & Other Stuff)

LOL, if you only knew :).

it's ok you can think what you will.

Re: update my Magnum Build Blog (Seat & Other Stuff)

thats a good attitude to have. i wasnt trying to be harsh but damn that reads kinda harsh. haha.

anyway, looks like its coming along nicely.

Re: update my Magnum Build Blog (Seat & Other Stuff)

Hey would you make me a seat like that? I love it :D

I actually thought it was you in the pics, and I was just razzing you because we're the same age. Sorry.
