Good work so far, i like this. Do you have any close ups of the battery box or pics of the process?

here are the requested pix of the battery box....hope this helps

First i welded a piece of flat bar to the bottom cross member of the frame as a perch for the battery to sit on below the swingarm

then i found a plant stand that the neighbor was throwing away and used the steel strips from it to make a bracket to hold the battery to the bottom of the frame....

then i took the old rubber tube from the rear wheel and cut a section out to make a sleeve for the battery to insulate it from the perch and the bracket and to cover the battery in black so it was harder to see under there...

hope these pix can show what i did good enough...

What paint did you use on the motor? That thing looks sick! 8)

thx!
just regular high temp engine paint from checker auto....one was flat and the other was semi-gloss...and then a stainless steel bolt kit i found to set it off....and sanded the edge of the fins on the top of the motor...
