Working on the bike again. Remember this is what it used to look like...



..and this is what it looks like today


I am hoping to start her up by months end before I disassemble for final weld clean up and detail.














Fabrication is slow when parts are difficult to find. Got a brake and foot peg set from Roland Sands but they do not make a matching shifter piece so I need to turn one and then attempt to copy the rubber boot. This custom sheet is hard. connecting wiring and setting battery in box in the next few days. Stay tuned for a video of her running sans muffler. Open pipe for now. I will have to fab up an insert to quiet her down a bit.
