If you're gonna do it, do it right LOL

+1 ^ might as well put the effort in right
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

That's the plan
Like a river that don't know where it's flowin'
I took a wrong turn and just kept goin'

Got my tank in today. Needs a tiny bit if massaging and it'll be perfect.



Threw a clean set of 37mm GS500 forks on and they look the business as well as perform WAY nicer than XS bits.



I need to start building some wheels... Up front will be an Indian 125 mini drum laced to a 19x1.85 Taskago alloy hoop.



Out back will be a 17", early GL1000 hoop laced to a CB750 rear drum.

Some more tank shots. Keep in mind that it's not sitting right at the moment. Need to widen thale rear of the tunnel by about a 1/2".







Need to decide on a headlight too. Toss up between the triangle or the old Indian 125 unit.

Like the tank mike, is it a triumph?

I dunno about the triangle, could look cool but I lean towards the round light

Yup. 70 Bonneville. I've always loved the triangle lights... We shall see.

Little mock up action tonight to see if it all fits together in real life, not just in my brain...
