YAMAHA CHOPPER PROJECT
DESIGN | MAIN | ASSEMBLY

2006/07/23:

With the electrical box welded into the frame, I bolted the components into place and started running wire.


First step was feeding wires down the backbone.
I had also drilled a hole straight down through the backbone into the vertical seatpost. And the seatpost and battery box had been pre-drilled to allow wires to pass through.
So wires started making the trip down the seatpost and into the electrical box.


Wires destined for the rear signals would pass back up the seatpost and out of the tail of the backbone. It's a lot of wire to squeeze in there but if you've got it figured out it's not too mind-bending. The trick is tying things off neatly after you've got the connections made. Another trick is finding coloured wire of all the colours you want. I could just never find the shades of blue etc that matched the original harness, so I had to start drawing black felt lines down same-coloured wires so I could identify them on the other end of the frame.
