This is gorgeous! Got any pics of the subframe and how the seat fits etc?

Last few days, did the stripe on the tank, have to compound it one more time, made a couple of seat base extensions (at front) to fill the gap better and lengthened the seat.
On one of the first pictures you can see a red rag rolled up under the cardboard gas tank, this gave me the rough height of the gap but had to have the tank in hand and mounts done before I could make something, seat is not fixed down in the pictures and the gussets (extensions) are only held on with tape but will be permanently attached late today.

Also changed my mind on tank badge, after dry fitting the 1960 badge I did not like it (scale was off), going with this 1965 one.

The method you used to mount the seat base and create the rear hoop is genius, well done man. This is one of my favorite cafe builds and by far the best Harley cafe I've seen.

Small job today, tank decals, I'm glad I changed my mind as this fits the tank better, the other (1960 style) ones were 5 3/4" long as apposed to 7 1/4" for this type (1965).
