Just tuned into this one. Lookin pretty good so far. As many have already pointed out., your grip idea is pretty sweet. I wouldnt mind seeing some other minor leather detals. Nothing real crazy as you may find on Harleys but perhaps something a little discrete. Never heard of painting bike bits with nail polish. Lemme know how that holds up.

The grips are coming along, but that jade is pretty difficult to work with. I'll figure it out. I'm all ears for other leather details, although the seat is also going to be pretty labor intensive as I'll be upholstering it myself.

Shiny bits.



Now i secretly, or not so secretly, hate you a little bit.  I want those mufflers and mirrors.
so a dolphin is driving and his car breaks down...he takes it to a mechanic...the mechanic says its going to be a few hours if he wants to wander around the town...upon his return, the mechanic says "looks like you blew a seal" to which the dolphin replies: "no sir, it was a walrus"

Dime City Cycles SS shorties. They're not cheap, but they sure are pretty.

My swinger bushings came in friday after a 2 month wait, so I now have a roller.

Got my headers and SS mufflers in place. Damn, those mufflers are pretty.
 


The pipe wrap isn't long for this world, but I needed an immediate alternative to my pastel pink headers. A friend had some extra laying around, so i threw it on there. When I get my shop up and running next year, I'll fab up some SS headers to tie into the mufflers.

Looking good man, bet you can't wait to ride this sucker.
