thanks for the kind words

Awesome to see you building it in your apartment lol. Where there's a will there's a way.

The Tarozzi stuff is gorgeous. Glad to see it found it's way onto your bike. Great looking build so far man, keep it up.

yup 2nd story apartment. 
im in college too.
i run the auto club at clarkson and we have a huge shop when i need it.

Hell even the girlfriend is ok with the bike in the living room.  she says its ok as long as its not leaking.

my Hella headlight came in.
need to see how to fit it to the stock housing.

tried to mount the steering damper but i had a 1 1/2 clamp not a 1 1/4.....so i ordered the right one, it should be here by the end of the week
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/3-Piece-Frame-Clamp-Harley-1-1-4-Frames-/130384911070?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item1e5b8bdade#ht_555wt_884


im starting to think about gearing and sprockets.
i want to run and alloy rear sprocket but not sure what pitch(is that the right turm? IE 520, 620, 630)
what do you guys think?  and what size sprocket?
the motor will be a fully build hot street/race set up.
atleast a 836.
goal on any motor build would be near 90HP. 
i search all the time for blower set ups but so far they have been either junk or crazy money.

my hella VP headlight came in.
takes a H4 bulb and looks very nice.
will be doing the DDM HID kit next


thinking about running this fairing.  not really sure yet.  its an original form back in the day.  came on the bike i bought for the lesters.
its been growing on me
what do you think?



braided lines
great looking work
fast shipping.
im very happy with them and they will finish off the brakes on this build very well




mounted the steering damper.
that 3 piece mount worked great.

im almost done with my twin piston OEM+ brake upgrade.
waiting on a few new oem seals and such.

32mm twin piston calipers that bolt on to the late CB750F lower legs.
new pistons, clips and seals

rebuilt CBR600F2 front master.
all the brake parts have fresh powdercoat.
using EBC HH pads. so she should stop well

anyone have a good idea to mount my glass fender other then hose clamps?

;D
Does she have a sister ;) ? Wish my wife would let me work in the living room. Bike looks great, surffly! Wish I had money like that to even do half your parts list. Real nice bike, real nice work.
 
What did you do with the original gauges?
