supercool project! hope you can get to riding it soon ;D
i would put some flat track bend bars on it, straight drag bars are totally worthless if you plan on actually riding it
a rider needs to have some control ya'know

Well this project got put on hold for a while for various reasons, but I've made some small progress. Going with a springer seat. Cut the Pan out of an old tractor seat, and built a pivot bracket that fastens to the bottom of the pan and uses 2 heim joints for the pivot. Right now I'm working on the placement and mounting of a couple ebay seat springs. Once I get the seat functional, the next plan is to start tackling the forward controls.

Decided to drag this thing out once again for some attention. Added a pair of 12" mini apes (plan on chopping them up some) and the springer seat is now functional.

Making some progress on forward controls! A shitty rachet handle, snowmobile tie rod, stock cb foot grips, stock brake lever,  and some scrap steel turned into this.
