That looks so much better, I was wondering how you were planning on not sliding off the back.

You'll have to forgive me, I'm making it up as I go.

I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Modified the kick stand today as well. Added a "don't sink in the mud" foot and cut, heated, bent, and re-welded the stock bracket to keep it from wanting to fall on the ground when it's leaned over. Really showed how much suspension I gave the old girl the way she was leaning.

I too was wondering about the seat, but looks like you got it figured out.

Looks still like the front might need to go down an inch or so or up in the rear?

Won't really know until I have weight on the bike as it'll be sitting. The rake and trail is about perfect though as is the wheelbase, so I think it's gonna be just about perfect.

More shiznit.

Some stuff I forgot to take pictures of but it was boring. Gusseted the subframe and welded in a tab for the rear brake reservoir. Picked up a headlight for $2 off of eBay off of an FT500 Ascot. I chose this because it's metal, heavy duty, takes an H4 bulb and will be pretty easy to build a stone guard for. Also the shape goes along with the random bikini fairing I picked up. Should do well giving you something to duck behind. Headlight bucket was beat, chrome flaking off, pitting, all of the goodies, so into the blast cabinet it went and then cleaned and coated with a coat of wrinkle black paint and baked on. Scratched my head for a minute about mounting and what I came up with is hilarious to me. I used a stock CB360 headlight bracket and modified it to fit the FT bucket, then added a plate to the bottom that will mount to the RMZ lower triple. I love frankensteining!

Also scored a set of Wolfman tank panniers for $20 second hand:

Yessir.  Awesome.  You do realize, however, that putting a 360 part on there just insures you will have mechanical issues right after E's Elsinore kills itself?

That's true. The headlight is probably gonna fall off, explode, and we will use the scraps to fix holes in E's engine so it's a win win really...
