I wondered if anyone would comment on the lack of rear braces on the seat.

I want to make the bottom edge of the seat line up with the bottom edge of the gas tank.
Next step was to make the rear braces and mounts to support the seat at the correct angle.
I wanted to play with the locations of both the upper end and where the brace would attach to the frame.
I ended up matching the rear kick up angle of the seat and at a good place on the frame.
First I needed to make the struts and I decided to use square tube instead of round as that matched the frame.

I welded a piece of round tube to the bottom end and welded a cap on one side so the bolt head would recess inside just like the upper front mounts. I will use ss socket head bolts for the finished fittings.

Then I wanted to see what it was going to look like with the new down pipe I had made (Ugly welding! ) and the muffler on it....

So far, so good to me
