  • The Bosozoku Bike Is Finished!


    Honda Hawk Bosozoku Bike- finished

    The Bosozoku style Honda Hawk is finally finished, and now I can properly move on to 2020’s projects. I’m rather proud of it, even if the flaws and mistakes inherent in it being my first (characteristically over enthusiastic) motorbike model are obvious on close inspection. For example, there is no way a boso rider would sport a full face helmet, but it’s there to cover up the shoddy join between the saddle and its oversized back.

    See the full gallery below (or maybe have to click on it to go to Flickr, depending upon how temperamental the embedding is being).

  • The Bosozoku Bike Build continues

    From the Spinneyworld blog-

    It’s been a while since the last instalment of this build report. Mostly because I’ve been neglecting it.

    Painting the tank took more masking than I’d ever done before. I’m happy with the lotus flowers that resulted, though I am showing you the side where a section of paint didn’t lift off with the tape and require bodging with a brush.

    Also shown in the last photo are the Croc Jaw foot pegs. Future builds will likely use a higher proportion of Spinneyworld products, but this one only features the pegs and the Ape Hanger handlebars.

    Starting to go together

    The bike started to go together, in short bursts. I didn’t get the engine in the right place, though, and that had a bunch of knock on effects. Such as problems lining up the chain. Which were compounded when I glued it to the side of the engine block.

    Pegs in place

    The foot pegs look good, though.

    Final fit After a certain amount of faff, the exhausts went on. The kit shares parts with another model, so there were actually two exhaust options available to me. I went with the non-standard ones, but had to do some bodging, filing and cutting to get them working. The left hand pipes are a mashup of the chrome ones intended for the kit, and the longer alternative ones I wanted to use. Check out the gallery for a longer explanation.

    The handlebars have finally been ordered from the printer, and the bike should be finished soon after they arrive. Check back soon to see.


  • Introducing the Early Adopter Discount at Spinneyworld

    The Early Adopter Discount in the Spinneyworld store is a scheme to help me launch new products, and an opportunity for you to get them for less, if you grab them soon enough. Think of it as a rolling, in-store, Kickstarter scheme.

    The discount applies from the time a new product is listed, until the first batch is delivered. Qualifying products get a discount of 20%. You’ll have to wait a little longer for delivery, but you’ll be amongst the first to get the model, and I’ll be able to expand my range.

    This is an automatic discount, applied to qualifying products at checkout, so you don’t have to remember a code to use it.
