Interesting process with the battery. Me, I was thinking of trying to flip side with battery so the terminal is on outside for easy access which mean I would need to be sure the wire is longer than normal in order to reach the terminal.
You asked me how powder coating is going.. here is some of the result..
Just shipped the hub to Buchanan's spoke to make Sun Rim for front/rear. I ordered a billet aluminum front hub for KTM (Because I am using their 50mm WP forks and it has 17" axle) and had it shipped there. The front hub will probably be the only orange that will look different from the rest but that's ok because with front brake disc and all, it shouldn't be noticeable from distance but noticeable within 5ft.
I am hoping to get most of my sportster assembled by end of the year (be in Colombia this Nov).
