post number 58

Here is another pic of the seat I mentioned earlier. It is a real puzzle, this is pretty clost to how it goes together. The springs are upside down in this pic./

I finished my seat post last night. I chose to cut the slot a little different than stock. I have seen these posts break at the bottom corner, a radius is a lot stronger than two sharp points, so I think that this will work better on my cannonball bike.

Here are the gas tank pieces that I got in the mail today. I should have made these pieces before the bottom parts, but it doesn't really matter now because I have them all.

I also started to machine this big hunk of steel. I love how it doesn't really matter how nasty a piece of metal looks on the outside, and it looks brand new after a little bit of turning. This is as far as I got last night before calling it quits and going home. Can anybody guess what it is? Please comment and let me know.

  1. OK, that looks huge, but it's hard to be certain without something of known size for reference in the photo. Could it be a wheel hub?
