Once the thing runs and some of the new stuff is test fit etc it's getting a much more I depth tear down.  Even made myself a dedicated bike stand the other day.

Total parts list to hit the bike with:
Engine gaskets
Gas tank
Tires(front is getting swapped out with a less knobby tire)
Tail light
LP bracket(I made it but no pics)
New grips (some point after controls are sorted out far down the line)


Lots of fun over the next few weeks and on top of that I started a rehash on my rock crawling jeep.  I know that's not what this place is about but here's a picture anyway. Enjoy the Cnc cut parts.

Fuel lines, shut off, filter and fittings all purchased and ready for the gas tank. Engine rebuild and wiring will be done this weekend!

Time to fab and build.

Shot the primer on the tank today.  When I comes time to handle it over and again I don't want rusty finger prints all over it.

Right side is a little jumbled, tank will sit up higher and should make it look a little better.

It's just taped in place so it's not real rigid but that's right where it'll be and them the back 4" or so will be bent up to allow for a fender to come through there.

Well, I think you won't have cold thighs during a winter drive  :D
GPZ550 cafe racer http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=69514.0

It ain't about showing up on a bike that the loan officer at your bank, or your parent's inheritance bought for you. It's about skinning your knuckles, straining your back, developing some blisters on your hands, breathing varsol and paint fumes,taking measurements and making mistakes.
It's about standing back, after the dust settles, and being able to say when people ask, "I BUILT it!"

I'm not sure the stock exhaust gets to stay. It's kind of in the way of the tank and fuel plumbing too.

Yep redo that exhaust lower with that tank IMO.
I was skeptical on the tank but I like the oversize look on the small bike.

I also found a long lost stator cover after 3 months looking. It needs repair but it was cheap. $10+shipping

Tonight I took the exhaust off and got the tank all the way down where it belongs.
