Garage is a little full.  My XS cafe is in there too behind the SR.

But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

So what's the plan for finishing it out? Will it have a vintage vibe or a new school bobber look?

Vintage vibe. The inspiration all along has been the 1950 Triumph Thunderbird. I'm hoping the bike ends up looking somewhat like a factory bike, but clearly not. Simple fender stays, exposed wiring, simple paint.
