Thanks Bud, it was fun to build.  Turns out the flanged part of a stock Sportster crossover tube is the perfect dimensions for a starting point.  From there I took a couple bends out of some CB750 headers that had gotten banged up in a spill (PO), and then stepped up to another section of the stock Sportster pipe and muffler (which the PO of that bike had already hacked up).  Still needs a baffle, but I've got an idea for that.

Bert, I'm trying my damnedest to keep that stock tank, but after a failed POR15 treatment I'm not sure it's going to be runnable.  It has sentimental value to me, so if I can save it, I will.  It isn't as pretty as it looks in pictures, but it may still work.

So I made my first attempt at mounting tires, and, you guessed it....pinched the tubes on both of them  >:(

I did get a seat made up and "sort of" mounted.  Lots left to do to get it right, but I like the general look.

Tried to use controls made for a moped (figured they would be about the same size as the little 100's), and while they look good, they will need some modification to work.  The front brakes need a new spring, as they won't return without pushing the lever back out, and the rear brakes are gonna take some finagling, as I took the actuator arm off of the spindle to get the wheel off and now can't get the actuator arm back on.

All of my cables need to be modified to work with the moped controls/

Still need to make up an electronics tray, grind down some tabs, probably needs new chain and sprockets, then needs to be completely wired.

Seems I've made a big old mess here without much progress, but I never expected this to be done quickly.  So here's an updated shot...

I went with a set of Michelin Gazelles, 2.75 x 18 front and 3.00 x 17 rear. Figured a quarter inch larger in the front than stock will help balance the look, while not going so big as to impact handling too much.  Any of you guys run Gazelles before?  They look sweet!

I have Gazelles on my MB5 and really like them. I only have around 400 miles on them so far but no complaints as of yet. Also, they seem like they are going to last a very long time, can't even wear off the little things sticking out  from the manufacturing process (sorry don't know what they are called)  :o

I think nubs is the word you're looking for?

Been a while since the last update, so here's a little something.  Haven't gotten a LOT done since I've been working on a CL350 for my buddy, but a little progress has been made.  Since the last post I've picked up and added: a CL pipe with the heat shield cut down a bit (it was rusty and mangled) and gasket, a new wiring harness (about 3/4 of the way installed), and put the stock seat and rear fender back on.  The brown seat just didn't have the look I wanted and was poorly made, by yours truly.  Oh, and I also started in on an electrics tray, had a set of old mirrors that were on my '55 Ford, busted the mirror out of one of them and cut some brackets out of the inside, VOILA, electrics tray.  Even has a handy hole in the side where I'll likely mount my ignition switch.

One thing bothering me: I added longer shocks to the rear and now the fender looks REALLY goofy.  Another seat/fender may still be on the to-do list to remedy that.

The cone filter will most likely go in the trash, may replace with a long velocity stack and sock.  We'll see.

These engines HATE stacks and pods.
I'm sure the removable of the air box is for the "look", but know these motors don't have a lot of HP to loose....and the air box is not restricting or robbing HP, it's making it.
