Luugo86,
                  Thanks, not my living room, I own a shooting range and I'm in the process of converting half the main building into my shop ( two story building is 24' x 44'), will have my table lifts etc, etc set up come spring.

Started dry fit of rear fender tonight, got some "Made in the U.S.A." switches, horn with just black wire, other is light high/low. Apart from levers, throttle and grips, the switches will be the only thing on the bars.

Maybe I should have admin move this to tracker/scrambler, attached picture for people that think you can't run Springer forks in the dirt (Flat track or Scramble)

Made brackets to run under fender today. Also oil tank decal to have a change of pace from making brackets for fender and tank (tank has been off 23 times so far)

Thanks Luugo86, I'm going for a street legal late 40's into the 50's WR tribute (but with swingarm frame), tank is as close to WR as I can get, wait till I get the bars done and distressed leather solo sprung seat on.

Did a few things today, wiring clean up took the most time, lower tank bridge mount made and fit, drilled tail light holes, put the starter switch back on with new screws, that's it for the day.
