    Those hubs are gorgeous.

    Looks like the GS had an overheating problem. Probably just a clogged radiator. :lol3. What's the scoop with it?

    Cognito Moto really does make functional art in my opinion at least.

    The g/s was bought off another member here who bought it from a guy who dropped it leaving the gas station with a nice full tank of fuel that happened to rupture and ignite. I guess fortunately for me, only way I could afford another bike... already been talking to Prutser to get a set of his triples. Need to focus on one build... if anyone has a pd tank I’m looking.

    I’m really getting really excited about this build. These bags are awesome!

    Wixom panniers are just the right shape, IMO. I put a set on our sidecar rig (link in dig).

    Back wheel just on for mock up. Going to powder coat black and rebuild the final. No worries the motor will just be vapor blasted no paint on it.

    Up next for now will be addressing the rear suspension and brakes.

    Have a bunch of small stuff coming. Going to redo the all the foot pegs. Hoping for a stockish look on them but better. Kind of my theme for this build a stockish look but better imo.

    Got some new light covers for the wixoms. Ordered led replacement bulbs for them and for the new turn signals I just got. They look like a mini /5 turn signal which is why I got them. Cast aluminum bodies seem like a really solid build for how cheap they are. Pulled the stems out of them cut down the stock turn signal mounts and I’m quite happy with them. New brake light and plate light on the way and I ordered rear shock last week.

    I ran those signals on my r80. Really liked them. Agree that they are a pretty quality product for the price!

    Gave up trying to find a used solo seat and order a new one, it was cheaper. Going to Shave a hair off the height at the back and have it recovered with some nice stitched black leather.

    Great looking build so far! Source for the signals?

    *edit* Just saw the package of new signals on your hoist. Cycle Gear?

    I swapped the bulbs with led bulbs from superbrightled. Bike will be wired up with an munit like the rest of my bikes.

    Wish mine had...

    Rear light came in and mounted it up. It’s extremely bright combined with the led bag lights and led turn signals also used as running lights plus a separate plate light should be a bright rear end.

    Seat went to the upholstery shop Monday, won’t be back for a month. Went with something other than black interested to see how it turns out.

    Plate holder/led light I’m using
