Hey all, here's a little update on the mid size.

Its coming along slowly but most of the worst is done. 

- everything thats getting PC'ed is done
- electrics are all sorted, fingers crossed
- motor is rebuilt, painted, wired
- front end is coming together
- instruments and controls look good

Mostly just need bracket fab, paint tank and finish seat, cables, and tuning.  Not small things, but now that the weather is nicer i can spend more time in the garage

Thanks guys.

Starting to get down to the last few bits. 

Tank is painted, I went with red (pics next time)
Seat is nearing completion (anyone know a good upholsterer in the B'more/DC area?)
Rear wheel aligned and spaced and calipered
Wiring in and mostly hooked up

I am 6'1" so here's a few pics for scale

Starting to wrap things up, just a good deal of reassembly and tweaking.

Its really small when you're up close or sitting on it. Yet, feels to be really solid and rigid, not like the shock are oversprung, but that there's no flex in the frame or front end or components.

 Looks like it's going to be a blast to ride. Did you do that seat yourself, it looks great.

It is a really fun ride.  I haven't done a top speed pull yet, but i've had it to 70 and it seemed like there was more left in the bucket. 

I did the pan and foam while GS Upholstery in Millersville, MD did the tuck roll.
