You do know that this post is worthless with a sound bite video... right?

The front turn signal billet mounts came in, so I can complete that part of the project. The Paint shop still hasn't gotten my stuff done, the paint man had a death in his family, so that's OK with me. I guess next week I should have them all back and I can complete more of the project.

NO pictures to post today since I really only finished up my soldering and heat shrinking my turn signal wires. I also decided to bleed the brake systems with fresh DOT 5. The rear needed it the most.

Spoke to the body shop yesterday. They are spraying out my stuff on Monday and I can pick it up Wednesday. Once I get those parts, I can mostly just bolt on the rest to finish. Lastly Ill have to mount up the rear tail / license / turn signal combo. That gets attached via a special epoxy that was included in the RYCA Motors kit. I'll get some fresh pics up once that happens. So keep your eyes on this thread for next week. ]

Thanks for watching.

JUST picked up my mini faring and rear seat/cowl set up. The painter did an excellent job of colormatching, It is perfect. The owner ended up giving me a discount for waiting for so long so it ended up being $150. Bonus.

good on ya! very nice.

Have you thought about putting a skate wheel below the belt to give a little tension at full rear extension? Might also consider a headlight/instrument lowering bracket from chainsickle.

It doesn't have to be two wheeled to be a project.
