I needed a spare set of hands to install the exhaust, so my buddy George came over today and helped me out. I might need to add some spacers to move the exhaust tip out a little but I won't know for sure until I get the weight back down on the rear wheel... anyway here's how it looks with the pipes.

Got the primary side put back together today... I think I'll need to shorten the clutch cable a couple of inches... it's okay but could be a smidgen tidier. So far this bike has been an absolute pleasure to work on mechanically speaking.

I did a swap of the original chrome kickstand for a 1" longer black one to keep the thing from leaning over too far with the extra lift from the longer shocks. I did pick my paint color and have it on order. I am going with a Jeep Sunburst Orange... I'll probably work in a graphic of some kind, I'll think about it while I'm drunk in Mexico next week. Hopefully the weather will warm up enough for me to paint soon... that's all that is left besides some final assembly and tail light wiring.

Now I'm finally onto the pretty bits and onto prepping for paint... I had a few extra holes in the rear fender to weld up so I knocked that out tonight.

I managed to get all the body work done and get the thin into primer. I'm going to give everything a final sanding and get a sealer coat on things this week with the anticipation of getting some color laid down this coming weekend. I'll probably paint it in two sessions, fenders then tank and side covers... or maybe just the tank separately form everything else.
