I may have to hit you up for a set of those ears for my XS.  8) pretty please?  :-*

really nice work PJ. But, ahem, is that rust I see on the brake lever?!?! Couldn't be. I must be mistaken.  ;D

Glad to see you're feeling better!!

 Maybe, when I get this finished  (or need more cash to buy parts -  when do you want them  :D)
 Yep, it's rusty, didn't look so bad before I polished things (then put flash on it  ::))
 My have to either make new alloy  lever or figure out re-chrome?
 Hopeto get front end together this weekend.
 I finished double shifts today, back to singles next week (but have to fix a lot of stuff around house for holiday )

Got the forks finished, (except for removing fingerprints  ;D)
 New seals, new oil.
 Finished headlight brackets, all polished up.
 Bought a new headlight, swapped out 60/55 bulb for a 35/35 H4.
 Here's a quick pic, yes, it has LED ring  ;D

I just put a similar headlight on my XS (haven't done the wiring yet).  Difference is mine has 2 sections of LED, and are amber... for turn signals ;)  Each side is wired independently.

"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. 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."

Hi Tim,
I may have to get one of those if I can't make indicators look OK.
 Rich,
I got bulbs from Parts Unlimited for 1980's Yamaha FZR1000.
 Apparently a lot of new scooters use 35/35 H4 as well so they should be easy enough to come by (eBay if all else fails)
 Going to find out about powder coating frame and swing arm in next few weeks
 I didn't realise I pass a place every day that does powder coating, found ad on craigslist
 Should be pretty quick to just fit all the parts I've been working on.
 I'm going to fit the 'bump-start only' motor to get it sorted out while I re-build the one that's in there now as a 378 (will get same treatment, except leave the kickstart in)
 I still have to strip the Chinese shocks I bought and make new lower mounts  (plus fix anything else I find wrong with them)
Going to make a new exhaust system and see about getting it ceramic coated
 Still not sure about tank or seat yet, may use CB350 four tank.
 Found the footrests I'm going to use (just the sticky out bit,  ;D) will need to fabricate mounting plates.
 Got a forward control gear change from something, spline fits Honda, will need link bar
Looks like it will flip to use as rearset
Going to re-design rear brake operating mechanism, haven't seen anything I like.
 I don't want the 'bent rod' flipped operating lever if at all possible, I want something with better feel and control than stock, if I can  ;)
I started working on taillight mount and rear fender, going sort of stock (ish  ;D)
 Still quite a lot of work but it's getting there

Looks great PJ, nice and clean...that headlight is something else too!

Aweful lot of 360's on here at present, they almost need thier own thread  ;D
Now front end is 99.9% done (still having issues with paint, never had so much trouble  ::))
Started on the rear shocks.
 Not completely dismantled yet as I want to find out what gas pressure is inside reservoir.
 I know Suzuki uses 142psi nitrogen but these feel real low pressure (and there is air inside damper, I can feel it when operating shock)
 I'll probably completely strip them, change oil and I think make a new upper guide bush from aluminum bronze/Teflon (because I've got some of each  ;D)
 Anyway, made a new lower mount from 6061, double the weight of stock cast pieces and a much better fit on shock mount.
 I had a cast spring seat break once on my Yamaha 400 enduro bike so I'm a little paranoid about weak suspension parts.
 Spring seat is at least twice the thickness of original plus, being 6061 it will bend well before breaking if it was overloaded
 Also looks a lot nicer than the stock multi part set up
