Very nice job! I'm currently building a Honda ML125 1983, turning it into something between a brat and a scrambler.
Liked what you did in your front fender, looks like what i wanna make with mine, besides it's a little rusty.
Following thread and keep on!

Got to love these little scoots. Look forward to seeing that.

Have the seat mocked up. Have to love heavy cardboard and a hot glue gun.  Trying to get some old cans of spray foam to cooperate and fill in the voids. If this looks satisfactory, I'll cut out some plywood to use as a buck and cover with fiberglass.

Green florist foam works great and you can shave it and sand it down nicely

I always forget about that stuff. I have something similar to balsa foam that I might try. I'm not the best at keeping things symmetrical though. So carving might not be much fun. With these templates, I have things fairly symmetrical.

Got the bar end mirrors today. So installed them. Also replaced the broken front brake light switch.

Nice yeah mine isn't perfectly symmetrical either but close enough for a first time, next one will be made when I take off the plastics and make fit closer to the frame, I'll also have to make a seat pan at the same time, it's hard though cause I use it as a daily runner too

Nice seat pan! I made mine with pure fiberglass directly molded on the bike. Think it doesn't need greater reinforcements, since the body weight is totally on the bike frame.

I assume you put down a layer of plastic sheet to protect/allow for easy removal?

Looks like I fried the coil.  It was the stock 6v one. Found an aftermarket one cheap on Amazon that looks like a direct replacement.

New AGM battery installed also.
