Thanks Psycobilly. I appreciate the kind words Man. I could really put your expertise to work on another part of this project if you think it is possible to do. We are gonna need to print a back drop for the finished urn yet. It will be used to set off the urn in a shrine like setting. Details of the image that will be used on it are not completed yet but should be completed in the near not to distant future. We think a 3' x 3' section of cloth will be needed. Can you print it ? Is there any criteria on the image, cloth, etc., that must be met to accomplish this ??
Thanks Mike. That imfo is invaluable . Does this mean we can utilize Amklyde's offer of a donation of a rear head then ? Will the early 70's rocker box bolt up to it ?
If this is the case and all these larger components will mate, we can get this ball rolling into full gear now.
I talked with Bob at Motorkill Cycle less than an hour ago and he gladly donated a rear tappet block for the urn. It will be around the 12th of February before he can get it off to me but it is a for sure deal none the less. He said he was pretty certain he had extras stashed away but it would take him sometime to look because of the swamped business burdens he was now in. He said that if he didn't dig one out of the stash by then he would buy one for the urn instead.
Putting this all into perspective.....I have this in mind. If all of these components will bolt together as planned, Scoot can go ahead and face the cylinder spicot off and turn a plug for the lower end of the rear cylinder he donated and weld it in. Then he can send it my way. I will finish up the cosmetics on it then, unless someone else wants to donate that task instead. Amklyde can send the rear head he donated to the person who will weld in the two valves. [valves are still needed] This person can ship it onto me to do cosmetics on it or he can ship it on to another person who wishes to donate the labor for this task. The head can then go on to Indianut for his donated engraving skills. Indianut will then send it off to me.
It seems all of the large components have materialised, minus the base components which are already in the works, and now we can target the smaller parts that are still needed. The base will be decided upon the urn assembly itself. The raw materials are donated for the base. Just the crafting will need to be completed.
Suggestions and ideas on how the sequence of events should take place are needed too Fella's. I placed my thoughts out to you as ideas and basic procedure thoughts. Nothing is totally organized as of yet.
Guy's........this is one of the greatest instances where I have witnessed such an astounding collective collaboration of Bikers, from all walks of the Biker lifestyles, come together as one common group, in order to make the wishes of another Biker Couple come true !!!! I tip may hat to all of you with the deepest of respect !!!! Pa
