Talking I was told it couldn't be done

I just got the finish paint done on my leaner project, 2 years in the making It all started with a $75 craigslist 84 GS750E that needed a good rebuild, then researching and designing the leaner frame and making the tub. I've kept track and all in all, I am sitting at about $2k into both the bike and the rig. Its such a gratifying feeling seeing a finished project sitting in the garage
Thanks to all here who have given guidance, whether directly, or indirectly through just my endlessly browsing threads.

Here is the build thread from a year ago, that should shed some light on the tub build portion. :)

Thanks, I've practiced the fiberglassing skills over the last 10 years or so, making various body work for different other bike projects. My first attempt back in the day left me cursing the stuff for weeks, but its grown on me :)

The sidecar and bike compliment each other nicely, you have an eye for design!

Thanks, I got to take each of the kids out for their first ride of the year today and had lots of fun. The fresh paint really sharpens it up, got lots of looks.
