"Harley Front End"
"DIY Nitrous kit"
--Bike has recently
made it's debut on the open road. Initial run
resulted in obvious need for engine jetting work
to be done. Currently working with final jetting,
but bike idles and runs clean. Cylinders one and
four tend to run lean, so more work is needed
in this area.
Discussing the lean condition with Ken at Cyclexchange.net,
the problem is likely due to the configuration
with the angle of the carbs in relationship to
the intake manifold and boots. Nitrous has not
been charged or tried as yet, since the jetting
isn't sorted out.
If you've got experience tuning the CycleXchange
carb set and have dealt with the 1 and 4 lean
issue -we'd like to hear from you!
--In addition we've just recently completed building
a tilt loading diamond plate covered trailer built
for towing the bike to shows.
Based on a Harbor Freight economy trailer and
other parts which we combined and modified to
make a unique an affordable trailer for Missthickmc.
The trailer just finished features a remote winch,
tilt loading and unloading by a single person.
Built for under $300, it's a perfect match for
the bike. We'll be adding it to the site soon!

WHY THIS SITE?
We'd like to have this site stay online for many years
as a reference for future DIY builders to refer to as
needed. A one stop shop of example work so to speak,
for anyone that is just doing a minor addition to their
bike or doing a complete build from scratch build up
like we did..
WHAT'S INSIDE THE SITE?
How to's, where and what to buy and from who, DIY information,
fabricating, modifying and repurposing parts:
Nearly 3.5 years were spent designing and building the
bike, initially it was a spare time project, but as
the build evolved it became a major project that in
the end even allowed us the opportunity to go into the
motorcycle parts business.
When we found that some parts we wanted to have on the
bike just weren't available from anyone, we decided
that if we wanted them, we'd just have to make certain
parts ourselves. We also decided to offer those parts
to others enthusiast as well and thus the Thickmc.com
motorcycle accessories company was born.
The purpose of this site is to offer help to others
who are doing their own custom builds and to show visitors
how we worked around certain build problems and adapted
parts made for other bikes or other purposes to fit
our needs in the process of building a unique one off
Many times we turned to the Internet for guidance from
others on how to do certain things or make things work,
so we thought this site would be a great way to give
back some of that help we received for others and at
the same time help enthusiasts on their own builds.
The advertisers and vendors shown on this site, are
often the very same ones we purchased our parts from.
Certain companies took extra time with support with
our multitude of questions for us that went far beyond
just a sale for them, proving some companies really
do care about their customers.
From large companies like Summit Racing, Jegs, to medium
and small companies like Dynatek Electronics, DynoTuneNitrous.com,
CycleXchange.net, and even many small "mom and
pop" vendors selling parts on Ebay, all were helpful
with getting us the correct parts and the best in pricing
along with support with all of our parts needs.
We hope our visitors will follow these links and help
us support the advertisers on this site when you go
to leave our site or decide you need to purchase a product
we mentioned using on our bike build. They certainly
deserve any visitors or customers we can send their
way for all their efforts and help in building our bike.
If they went out of their way for us, it's a good bet
they will for you as well.
BIKE NAVIGATION MENU OUTLINE
site is grouped loosely into
the following build up sections:
Bike Intro Sections:
A bit' humorous of a
read, the intro section explains
our goals, our limited budget
for the whole deal and how we
managed to end up making and
selling parts. It also explains
how we got the wife who over
the years has modeled for other
products we've sold over the
years to allow the whole project
to become what it turned out
Following our start to
finish process, the first 10
pages of the build, cover the
tear down, frame mods, design
choices, tools bought and made.
Most of the metal fabrication
for the bodywork and the fiberglass
seat pan construction are covered.
Modifying stock parts for the
new need is also covered in
the group of site pages.
Assembly side of the
things are covered here, including
creating our nitrous kit from
scratch and doing the custom
paint and artwork. Rewiring
the entire bike to work with
all the new components such
as gauges, lighting and custom
ignition all are covered in
/ Epilog / Conclusion:
For a show guality machine
allot of attention to detail
is required. This area lets
you get a close up look at how
the whole package and theme
work together to make up the
finished bike. Proof that a
nice bike can be built at home
and on a budget.
We relied heavily on
different forums, part vendors
and Internet resources to pull
all of our parts together and
do it at a minimum cost. Those
that went out of their way to
assist, gave us a deal and offered
technical advice are listed
