We have ourselves a steel stem, which is great.

I'll take it off and take it to a proffesional fabricator on Monday, I figured I would snap some pics of it all mocked up though for you.

I love the look it gives it.


I'm thinking a small led tractor flood light for the front, but that's to be determined.

Once the front end is sorted out, and I find the stance I'm wanting, it will then get all of the wiring done.

Going to run minimal wiring on this one, as in Missouri you don't need turn signals, so I will be going with just the front and rear lighting, with the accent light hooked up on the foot brake.

The tank situation will be interesting.
Somewhere between body working it, and leaving it as is.
The dents almost give it some personality, I may leave the dents and sticker bomb the thing if it doesn't look stupid. 

After all, it's just a little around town bike/bar hopper.

That's an excellent suggestion, hehe.
I just wanna turn heads for under 500 bucks, if I can do that I'll be happy!

Anyone know a good thing to soak a dirty chain in?
This chain is NASTY

I use pine-sol as a degreaser for a TON or parts. Works great after a day or so..my mixture is pretty diluted at this point but you can usually get a bottle for $3 or so, works great on aluminum parts too I soak my carbs bodies in there.

I'll toss it in some, let it soak and see.
I'm currently running some apple vinegar through the tank to see if I can't get some of the surface rust out before I line it.
I'll give the chain a go tomorrow!

Delivery!
I always wonder how they get these things here so quickly.
The packaging reaks of tobacco, they must ship an odd mix of things over together.. Lol.

Ignore my messing room, I live in a fraternity house so you can imagine how clean it is around here.

I got a nice little card board cut out made to see what we're working with.
It's looking like I'll probably go with a simple brat style seat, it seems to jive well with the tank.
I threw some random colors on it for the time being simply because I was sick of the paint dripped black paint job done to it. Lol.

Would it be cool or dumb if I adapted this to the stock pipe set up?
Chop and weld at the inlet and then run this?
I think it looks so much better with an expansion as opposed to the ugly stock pipe.
This is a yz85 expansion I had laying around that I need a use for.

Today's day 10 since I sent out the Vermont title stuff and still nothing back, should I be worried?
