Very nice! Sure cleans up the look well

Thanks guys.  I have a ton of fabric leftover- maybe I can put it to use somehow.  I shot the headlight today.  Had some single stage black left over from painting a gsx-r so I just did it with that.  Turned out nice and flat and glossy.  Headlight ears should be here in the next few days.

I took off the upper triple and factory headlight ears, holy cow I was not expecting THAT much rust and pitting on the upper tubes.  I really need to get another set, but for now I just wire wheeled them really good and hit it with some epoxy chassis paint.  I wire wheeled all the crusty paint off the upper clamp and since I really like the bare metal look decided to coat the bare aluminum with some por15 glistenpc




I think I really need clip ons now...  Drag bars don't cut it. 







Now everyone's favorite part... cleaning up and tucking the harness  ::)

I ordered a set of cycle x clip ons.  They were really cheap but look halfway decent.  Anybody else have these?  I figure I may have to change the front brake lever/master cylinder if they are short.

clipons are on along with a working BMC and lever.  I may do rearsets, depends how It rides.   I have some other things I need to do before it will be road ready though, like the brake pads, fork rebuild, and tire.  Still way fun riding it around the neighborhood or to the store and back.

are you planning to leave the oil tank exposed?

Thanks crq,  I'm really looking forward to painting this thing so it's less janky looking next to the 240. 

stogz I have a fabricator friend who is going to weld me an aluminum sump tank, and I'll run AN fittings and lines to the factory pickup and return.  It will be similar to this, only rectangular.  I may extend it under the air filters for more capacity as well.

Waiting for this hurricane to blow over and for my new forks and tire to come in before I can make more progress.  I did make a new "fusebox" for the bike to replace the original glass tube style fuseholder...

What tail light is that?  Integrated turns I assume?  Looks awesome!

I'm using your headlight as an inspiration!  I want to get maybe a Mini H1 projector and figure out a housing for it, maybe custom machined or retrofitted into an old housing.
