Week 7: Removing the Fenders and Gas Tank

Last week, the girls had their first chance to get their hands on the bike up at the Hot Rod Institute. This week they were back again, and in great spirits to do more work on the motorcycle! Now that they had a better feel for getting hands-on with the tools and bike, they all seemed quite excited to begin removing some of the sheet metal. The girls took turns working with Rob Burton, Amy Klock, and each other to start removing the fenders and the gas tank.

 Once the girls removed the pieces from the bike, they moved them to a safe place where they could be cleaned up a bit. This  is also the time when more questions began to arise. As the pieces were coming off the bike, several of the girls began asking questions about other parts that were now in their view. Their gears were turning! A few of them even began talking amongst each other about how those parts would look once they were painted and back on the bike. 


As the day began winding down, the girls were pretty excited about what they had accomplished. The bike was starting to look a little less like a shiny motorcycle and a little more like a project to them.
