Thx! Finally had an hour today to get some work done on it...got the rear fender mounts welded on...I believe that's the last of the welding needed on the frame so I should be able to start tear down and send the frame to powder, and seat to upholstery. 
Oh wait, still need to do some fab to the exhaust pipe and perhaps a mounting bracket to the frame!  Damn I swear I'm gonna forget something and send up powder too early!
Doin Baja 500 this week so I guess no work on it till the next weekend after.

Polished for sure  :D , with all the black of the tyre and rim, the forks disappear. you have a pic on pg1 at the bottom with silver forks and it just pops!  ;) just my opinion though ...........
