Again, I for one think the bike and new engine scheme is damn cool. I have always digged this bike because of the style.

Getting a late start on a couple updates for spring. 
New 7" headlight
aluminum coils



I need to find a new spot for the ignition switch.  For the addition of new coils.  I also want to cram flasher under tank.
I wasnt going to dig into the wiring this deep, but once I got started its hard to find a stopping point.  So, I decided I am going to have to clean it up a bit.



and make some room for the headlight.



First thing I need to get the ignition sw moved out from under tank.



  I am going betwixed gauges on triple.



crammed it in to see if it would even fit.



pulled the bracket I made to lower the gauges and w some cutting and bending its ready to try.



fits nice, snug and solid.  doesnt rub triple or gauges.  pleased.



A quick sandblast and fresh black epoxy will be in order.

Then onto bracket for the coils.
had a length of square aluminum tube standing in the corner for years.



used a hole saw and drill press at work. 







Then had Gary an iron worker buddy weld up deflectors on it.



I was going to polish it up w the coils...but thats just too much aluminum.  So I think Im gonna blast it and epoxy black it...with the coils polished nice.  It should be ok.

Im also thinking of blasting the chrome of that massive 7" bucket and black it also....

Cool, at first I thought you painted on oil gushing out (it's just the way my mind works  ;D )

LOL... I don't see how you get "painted on oil gushing out" but that's funny. It's not oil it's Texas Tea. :)

The new ignition switch location looks great!

Hey Trek that guy's XS650 is STILL sitting under a tarp two doors down. He has the carbs built and swears it will run with them back on but he's too frail to ride a bike anymore and is holding on to it till someone will love it as much as he does. Still only $400 last I heard.

Damn cool coil bracket!

Thanks guys.  I hope the coil bracket looks decent once I get it on.  need to get this wiring cleaned up before I can get my buddy greg in here to do the welding on the tabs for it.  Im not gonna weld it cause they will be somewhat visible.  And my welds should never be seen by anyone.
Also, my only real concern w the new coil location is the heat radiating from the headers.  But, Im thinkin w all the added air flow, they shouldnt get any more heat than the old coils crammed up under tank 5 inches above the headers.
If heat is an issue I may have to add some small heat shields.  But thats no big deal.

Is that the "british style" bucket from DCC? If so, it looks like the same one I have put on my 360 and current CL350. I love the looks of them and that there is more space to tuck all the wiring into.

Are they stainless coach bolts or are you going to grind off the letters and paint them?
