DKW Exhaust Work

First I made little aluminum standoffs (threaded) then forgot to take a picture after I welded them to the exhaust. Then I fabricated an AL heat shield. Still needs some minor finishing, and the entire exhaust will get polished up.

Almost looks like a motorcycle!

DKW Progress


I've made progress on the DKW project. In no particular order:

-nearly complete fabbing up the full exhaust.

-small rear fender fabbed up and mounted, still need a taillight.

-freshly upholstered leather seat thanks to Sam, my sister-in-law's boyfriend. He's been taking leather working classes, and we thought this would be a fun project. It came out great!
