Thanks!  It's plain old florists green foam blocks.  I used a 3m spray adhesive to glue them together about 8 hours before I started cutting away.   I used a grater for wood for the rough out and my hand worked really well for fine stuff and smoothing.  I wore a good filter mask, that stuff goes everywhere.

Ha! I thought it looked like that stuff. I use one of those wood hasps, too. They work great for cutting and forming foam.

I dig the seat. Will the frame stick out past the seat like that?

Once the form is finished, I'll have the line I need to notch the extra rear frame tube and bend it upwards about 70 degrees or so.  I'll weld it up and it will end up being a support for the back of the seat.   Thats the plan at least.

So like a cafe style sissy bar? That's cutting edge and that's the kind of stuff that makes you the cool dude that you are

I had not thought of a cafe racer sissy bar.  Pure genius.

Seat is lookin good. I might take a little of the tail end but that's just me.

I don't remember if you were planning on pods or air box but these showed up on eBay. I already got myself a pair.

Thats a good deal on those unobtanium bits, I appreciate the link Doc.  I might grab them just in case.  This twin won't have an airbox.   I plan on experimenting with intake length and I've been trying to come up with a different but minimal intake plenum idea.
