Rightyho, been busy over the holidays mostly with fabrication type stuff and haven't really taken many photos of the progress.. but, cut down the exhaust system and re-positioned and re-welded so it all fits nice and snug and hopefully leaves enough clearance for the front suspension travel (and added some extra bling). Finished off the switches and finally got the oil tank brazed together. Ended up getting me ol' dad to give me a hand on that one after a few botched attempts, but has come together beautifully (IMHO). Also been getting some more wooden bits together to start on the seat and for a few other detail pieces. Also been butchering the tank repair a few times, but I think I've got it sorted now, so that's the next thing to try and finish up. Hope is to have this thing on the road within 6 months... Aaannyyway, a few pics:

So I've been doing a few bits and bobs over the last few weeks. Finally got some guards back that fit nicely, lowered the gauges as they were sticking up way too far, installed the battery box and piped in the oil tank. Also made a buck for my first attempt at making a tank because trying to fix the old one was giving me the shits...

Guard mounting is next on the list. Then having a go at the tank. Then there's just front remote MC brake set up, rear brake set up, tail light/number plate bracket, indicator mounting, seat, cabling and wiring. Then powder-coating and electroplating and I'm almost somewhere near a functional motorcycle... I wonder if it will actually go...

Wow, what a great addition.  How did you bolt the mounts into the lower fork - were the threads there already or did you have to tap them?

Pure class.  Love your ride.
