The seat and the pipes have both arrived, but still waiting on the tank. Seat position is approximate until we get the tank in.

Playing around with the pipe position. Trying to decide to tuck them in tighter up under the frame, which would need both the center and side stand to be cut off, then a new side stand fabricated. Or leave them just outside the frame in which case the side stand would go, but the center stand could stay. Even with the pipes outside the frame, clearance before they would scrape is pretty substanial, enough that you wouldn't have any chicken stripes showing.
A good bike mechanic only needs two tools, WD40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move, but should, use the WD40. If it does move but shouldn't use the duct tape.
