  • Going to start my own business

    Going to start my own business doing custom fabrication and repair. I will be building and repairing drivelines also. Anyway I was going to see if there would be any interest in custom fabricated intake manifolds. Toss me any ideas as to what sorts of things that you wish were available to us roadstar owners. In the planning and research stages right now. I am looking at being extremely diverse in the work that I do to stay busy. This for now will be a weekend gig and after work show. Not quitting my day job so until I am logging 40 hrs minimum a week. Toss out and ideas for bike trinkets you would see, I have some ideas but I am all ears. Looking forward to making bike parts that are at a fair cost. I know this isn't a get rich scheme but it's what I like to do. I plan on producing floorboard relocation brackets in various materials and sizes to accommodate crashbars, however I will need everyone's help to make such accommodations.

    Accurate good quality chrome plated Landon bar....for around $150-200

    nicer looking rear brake pedal

    A "kit" to be able to use ra HD rear wheel/pulley/rotor on a Roadstar (so we can have option for matching front/rear HD wheels which are cheap and plentiful

      Not too long someone mentioned making a metal / aluminum Coasting enrichener cover. You could probably sell a few of them here. Seat rail might sell well also. Those are getting hard to find. +1 on the Landon Bar. Someone on here right now looking for a tank bra. How's your sewing skills? Those are getting hard to find also.

        Not any good at sewing. Eventually I am going to get a full size mill. But I think I could make the coasting enricher covers on the lathe. Liking the feed back. Sounds like I am going have to get some HD wheels rotors and pulleys and do some prototyping. May have to get a totalled flood bike for mock up. Keep it coming guys.

          Not much die, or sand, casting goes on in a machine shop.

            Sand casting is something I would play around with just to see if I could do it, always wanted to but I dont think I will be producing any castings. I won't have much to start with. A tubing bender is probably the extent of the forming equipment I will have. Visor for the lights and speedo is definitely something I would like to do.

                Sure would be nice to see some economical raked triple trees.

                  That would definitely be great to build. It's a bit early for me to say I could do that but I wouldn't rule it out, it's another thing I would love to produce.

                  Definitely want to come up with a set. I would like to know what the consensus is on peg position would be.
