Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

This nose will be on its way to England tomorrow, but before I could let it go I had to break out my own future lighting setup for a quick lighting test. My night light for the night: https://i.postimg.cc/rwQQQGhV/tube_light.jpg I'll be doing the final prep on the air foil/lower cowling for molding ...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

Next I made a fiberglass, sand, and fiberglass sandwich jacket mold to hold the inner silicone mold while creating the part. You can see it in this de-molding video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyGlnCsBWwg This actually had to be a double open faced mold so I could wrap all of the fiberglass pie...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

I made supporting walls for the silicone and spent a night mixing and pouring: https://i.postimg.cc/J7DVXvdr/Undertray_silicone.jpg As you can see, it can get pretty messy, and what you don't see in this photo is the corner that gave way and started pouring silicone until my wife and I squeezed it a...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

The undertray has proven to be the trickiest part so far to create. I made, and discarded, several diagrams before finally settling on a set of measurements and angles that should recreate the correct look: https://i.postimg.cc/HWqG9zfQ/undertray_calculating.png I molded several planes bent to the c...

Re: RIDING REPLICAS

A question for those that are making replicas, inspired by jesse1's post about once riding the hero bike to work. Are you guys planning on riding the bike on the street with no plate, brake lights, mirrors, turn signals etc? Heck yeah I am. If I get a ticket, I get a ticket. That said, mine does ha...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

I've always liked the series bike more than the pilot bike. However, after seeing how sharp those pieces look that you've reproduced I'm coming around to wanting to own that style also. :D It's funny you should say that. Growing up, I only ever remembered the series bike with the weapons pods on th...

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

On the right side lower side panel in the front will need a hump where the exhaust pipe is near the cylinder head? On the one picture I have of the prototype bike on this site being worked on shows a hump is required or the flat side or molding wont fit properly. Your flat panel won't work. Please ...

How much gas can the fuel cells hold?
Thanks Scott. There are two single-quart fuel cells, so it has about a 25-mile range.

Re: SPYHUNTER'S PILOT REPLICA-IN-THE-MAKING

I wonder why there was a slanted vertical line on the side panel of the nose piece on the original bike? When you make one of these noses in the traditional way--using a hard fiberglass mold--the mold must be multi-part. The two separate pieces of the mold have to separate at the widest part of the...

Re: headcount

There are only a few that actively participate, but each time I make a new post in my replica thread I think it usually gets about a hundred views, so there are definitely lots of folks lurking but not posting. Also, the forum has been beset by repeated spam over the years, and it got so bad that Jo...
