Thanks for asking Juan.  I starting making some rearsets and I will fab up the oil sump after that!  I'll post some photos in a couple days.

I'll be waiting! Looking at your 240 I am really waiting for the end result of this bike

:D Thanks.   The car's look is very unassuming to most people but very detail heavy with one off bits everywhere.  I hope the bike has that same vibe when I'm done with it.

Thanks.  Here's where I am with the rearsets.  cut some 1/4" plate out on the bandsaw and put some radii on the edges and some pilot holes for the hardware.  The bmx pegs will make the heel portion (may get smaller pegs) and I have an idea for the front.  Need to make a trip to the hardware store to figure that out and to get some clevis pins or heim joints and threaded rod for linkage.

You can probably use non-flatland smaller diameter aluminum BMX pegs and put some skateboard griptape around them!

No real updates Juan, although the rear sets are mostly finished (just need the linkage).  I've taken a bit of a break from it as it got cold out but should be back to work on it shortly.  I really need to pull the motor and do the headgasket next.

I'm not really happy with the rearsets thus far so I've put that on the backburner...  I hate looking at the bike without paint so I'm taking the plunge finally.

Sanded the spray paint off the tank with 80 grit.  I didn't want to strip it all the way down since the paint under the spray paint was okay besides the terrible chopper flames






Filler





Filler blocked down with 120 grit





Epoxied it



Sanded the epoxy down with 220 and added some glazing putty in areas I didn't think the 2k will build enough





Ready for 2k



2k!



That's where I'm at right now.  I'll be wetsanding then shooting the base for the special paint treatment tomorrow
