    Default Tom's bike model ... entry for contest

    Well, I still need to clean off the slag and spatter but for all intents and purposes the fabrication of Tom Patsis’ bike is done … I will call this my entry in the metal art section of the current contest.Click image for larger version.

    Happy new year to you Winky. Also, what type of chain do you have on that bike?

    LOL that was just a stroke of luck I was looking for some chain and not finding any the right size in my shop then my wife said she had an old chain braclet she never wears I looked at it saw it wasn't real drive chain put a magnet to it and it stuck so I thought "it might hold if I weld it in" so I gave it a try. Probably has some nasty properties so I held my breath when I did it. I think I'm going to order a 10' section of #25 drive chain the pitch is 1/4" and the width is 1/8". One plave on line has it for $13.50 if I recall correctly.

    Yahoo ... just found a good deal on #25 drive chain for future bike model projects ... 10' for $16.60 free shipping ... that's enough for 20 bikes ... that's 83 cents per bike ... not bad huh?

    I dunno man, 83 cents... I'd have to think about it, that may just break the bank...

    I know if I could use 520 or 530 chain it wouldn't cost me anything because I could use used chain and I get that for free all the time but that tiny #25 chain is hard to find used.

    With something like this you could really crank out the little bikes.

    That is just plain awesome ... would love to have things like that and a cnc mill and cnc engraver etc but all I can afford at this point are my basic hand tools but things can change ... thanks for sharing that ... it's really cool.

    Tom Patsis liked the bike so much he sent me this ... made completely of nitro hot rod parts ... the cam shaft is out of Mat Hagan's nitro funnycar Click image for larger version.

    I see the valves and wrist pins and such, but I can't quite tell what the staging lights are, spring seats, retainers?

    Very cool tree!

    They are nuts ... not sure what they were holding could have come from a number of things ... what got my attention was what was engraved on the end of the cam shaft "Hagan 312" I wonder if that was how fast his pass on that cam ... it was definitelythe last pass made on that cam ... looked like there was an explosion inside the motor scoring was minimal but tha cam was pretty scarred from things bouncing off of it ... Mat is one of my favorite drivers ... I have a great picture of him and I from Seattle NW Nats last year.
