Jim's Harley

Unread postAuthor: scottcrete » Mon Apr 07, 2008 3:17 pm

This page is to show off the combustion i built for my father n law today.. i worked on it for 2 days on and off.. but not alot of work.. i made all the graphics myself.. and they are printed on photosticky paper.. then i took clearcoat and coated the whole gun making the printed labels never run or wear as "printed" things dont last long..

what do you guys think of it..?

here are the pics of the finished animal..

Image
both barrels.. 1.5" and a 3"

notice there is a cap for both ends of the gun to protect threads

Image

barrel up close

other barrel up close

one barrel is 2 feet long and the other is 6 feet long

anyways cheers.. and hope you like it..

by the way.. the reason this is a harley cannon is cause he has harleys and i think this is his favorite thing besides his family.. and its his birthday.. so heres my version of a harley.. lol and yes it has a chamber fan.

Whats the red button sticking out of the chamber for? Aren't you worried about it blowing out when firing? The cannon looks great! Good idea to clear coat, you are a cannon building fool! I mean that in a good way. This is a great present!!

i get my money from a military disability.. I have several health problems do to things that has happend while in the military.

i dont work.. just save money.. and do things for entertainment.. and go to the doctor 3 days a week.. thats all brother..

that gun cost me 35.00 total with both barrels included. plus my time making it..

ive actually considered opening me an online buisness.. for things other than and including spudguns.. and offering them forsale.. totally custom for people.. plus other stuff.. i am able to design websites myself.. so it wouldnt be much trouble.

That last pic of the gun fitted with the 77mm has a mean look to it. I made myself a "tee shirt" barrel that size and have yet to shoot it...fits the same way as yours there.

Like the others have said the labels really make these things what they are...as well as the paint job of course. I'm a big proponent of a paint job, I just haven't done as much with the labels....

Do you have a fan in there? I assume you do with the batteries showing there.

Hmm, PowerPoint. I may have to try that.

This is definitely your best looking cannon to date; I'm sure even better ones are to follow. :)
