I do like the raw metal look
If I can get it pretty clean
I might try to heat  up (blue ) around the welds with a torch and this metal dye I've been wanting to try
That might be a cool look
For frame

Did a lil more welding on the rear and started the bondo

I'm not powder coating
I'm doing all my own work so I'm gonna do paint too
I'm not the greatest not the worst   Sometimes a lil made it nice cause had to do it twice lol  but if I take my time it comes out great
Haven't sanded bondo yet just testing on the rear hoop
I got more sanding and cleaning on rest of frame before I bondo my creases and primer but it's a start

Exhaust side got opened up
Substantially
Got more advice on how to shape and what to remove


Also got Schumann motorworks bronze valve guides I'll be installing next
I did not deck my head at all it was flat already after stoning
Used a $20,000 CMM inspection machine at work to check measurements
Overkill

Yeah I really got my fingers crossed for a bad little ripper
I got bored to gs850 Pistons
not going to get a cam and explore the whole heavy valve springs and eat my head   Bearing journals
But besides that
Did all the recommended mods and it should have better performance and will sound killer less restricted

Wondering if custom headers that have bigger I.d over stock would really help that much more
Cause these stock pipes are pretty small and there is room with the design of the collars to go fatter

Depends on what carbs you're using.  The CV carbs will benefit from a longer, narrower exhaust.
