Glad to see the dust come off this one Joe. Sucks about the trees but with so many out there hopefully you'll be able to source some for cheap. Anxious to see what you end up doing with the frame etc

Thanks Troy... been a long time coming huh! hahaha... what can i say, Willow inspired me!

well yesterday i had some "dad" stuff to do with the wife... Tim was in the shop and got some more done on the frame... it is coming along nicely so far!!!

no need to keep the crash bar mount




then since we are going to be running the smaller tank alot more of the frame will show... and the metal work is UGLY... so to clean it up, alot of the areas where filled

Before:


Durring:




after:




then the seams needed to be addressed as we can not have big gaps in the frame, that will look horrible under the powder

before:


after:




then the rear swingarm/exhaust hanger was up next... now this is not completed yet... but is all tacked in... we are still not 100% how the exhaust is going to be made and if we will need a support back there or not... so it is a work in progress still but here is where that sits








what was cut off


here she sits

smoothed out the frame and began to finish buttoning up the area that is left on the frame







then started to smooooooth out the frame







pic of how the tank fits (yes the petcocks are being moved)





then we moved on to head light



mount welded in







and an old set of vintage risers i found in my dads basement... these will really clean up the top of the trees!

Man I can't wait to see how this turns out!
Current ride: '06 Buell XB9SX

Projects: Not quite there but I have a pranged '76 CB550 I need to collect from my old man's place 750km away and then also busy searching for a good condition CB550 or CB750 to work on.  -> Sorted, it has begun!

I'm just loving this build - a little enginuity and a lot of vision - fantastic.
BTW - those bars look spot on for my own Cafe-Creme Boardtrackerish thing - stock Honda ?

looks good so far!
Sucks about the triple trees. It is such a crap shoot when buying a used front end. I have had 3 front ends that I picked up used end up being tweaked.
