I'm in.  Could you tell us about the seat foam and where you got it?

Seat looks awesome.  It wouldn't happen to be the stuff from Smooth-On, would it?  I've been meaning to try that stuff out.

^ it is the the smooth-on VII FR flex foam.  It's a little bit finnicky, wouldn't really be worth the work unless you were planning to make quite a few.  But the rebound/density is perfect, like a sea-doo or MX seat.

Rear shock mounts done. I'm raising the back end of the bike for a little more of an aggressive riding style.  Can't call it a scrambler if she can't scramble, so working on some frame/swingarm braces that should knock out some flex.  Haven't decided on extending the swinger or not, but I  will definitely be adding some strength (actually probably just weld up a new one)

Mate this is looking most splendid indeed.  Kudos, very, very impressive fabrication skills and a great looking ride-to-be.

Thanks Jimbo, time is fleeting and there is so much to get done.   Probably going to be slowing down on the scrambler here soon....gotta get started on the Beemer and the gs650... considering both bikes now have deposits put down on em. I wanted to get the braces/mounts finished up b4 take her off the lift, just to make sure nothing moves outta whack. better get to work.

Looking good, I like the method for making the seat.

I'll be building a rotisserie within the next couple of months for the Karmann Ghia I'm restoring. Build that one yourself?

Sure did, I can rustle up some drawings if you want, I based it off some plans I found here,  http://classicbroncos.com/rotisserie.shtml , and modified it to be more adjustable, as I want to use it for other vehicles in the future, namely the '81 911sc my father left to me a few years back. So it should work for you as well.
