Nice, did you vacuum form those?  Using a liner for the tank?

Well I tried but I can't run no more
Tell Katie it's her that I adore
And as long as I love her best
I'm that much further west

Beautiful!  Is the rectifier gonna get hot under that tail, right over the battery? Nice build!

No hotter than it would sitting under the side cover. Since its farther from the engine probably a little cooler.

Flat base and 90 degree pieces are compressing molded. The upper was vacuum bagged from a mold.
