Well, I think you won't have cold thighs during a winter drive  :D
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.

Well I kind of gooned up the frame.  I tried a heat and bend and I don't think it went well.

I've decided it's going back to flat.  Already have another tail frame loop coming from my buddy and was able to salvage the adapter pieces I turned the other day.

and you forgot to say how well it runs ? you must get it running before you do any modifactions
that said you need to inspect the brake shoes if they are riveted linings that is a very good thing and look like they have plenty of friction material left then try them out but do not ride it even down the rode one time without looking

if they are bonded no rivets replace them or it could kill you using 40 year  old brake shoes i know i was very nearly killed outright on a first ever test ride of a yamaha the shoes came unglued the very instant i put on the front brake
it was in the country in the orchards and i hit the brake at about 45mph as i came off pavement onto the orchard dirt
the front wheel locked solid in that split second and flipped me and the bike straight forward flipping into a ragdoll cartwheel affair
i would probably be dead if that brake had been used on the pavement that said i broke bones only the dirt had slight cushion
i have scrapped out 300+ old motorcycles and 90% of the ones with old shoes that are bonded not riveted are already falling apart it is a very very serious issue for the builder to fully address

I finally have both wheels off and the drums out.  There are lots of pad left but they are in fact glued only not riveted.
