I forgot to pick up the rubber grommets needed to make the tank mounts today, so I started on the side panels. I roughed in one to check the figment, and I'm really happy with it. I think they're going to look great. I threw on a velocity stack to check the clearances, I'll be running uni filters on the completed bike.

I hammered out the other three side panels today. I'm really liking these.

Backbones seam welded and front tank mounts in place.

Was that backbone weld to clear your tank or  just wanted something stronger than the factory spot welds?

  For both purposes really. It allows me to use a more shallow tunnel in the tank which increases fuel capacity, and it strengthens the backbone. So a win-win as I see it.

The rear rubber mounts for the tanks are done, and now on to the seat pans.

The transition pieces for the set pan are shaped and welded on. There are tabs on the underside that support the transitions and provide weld areas. These pieces allow the seat to clear the rear tank mounts, and provide a sturdy edge for the seat upholstery that will contour to the tank. They actually too a good amount of work, and will be covered in foam and leather, never to be seen again.

Before going any further with the seat I wanted to get the side panels mounted. The battery will be mounted below the seat so I decided to make the right side panel removable. I machined some aluminum bullets to hold grommets on the right side panels allowing them to pop off like the stock side covers.







Next I got started on the battery boxes from 16ga steel. I'll mount these up tomorrow.
