Made the bracket for the rectifier and mounted it today.  Still need to find room to squeeze in the starter solenoid, reserve lighting module, regulator, and fuse box. Am I missing something? Remember, I got the bike in three boxes and have no idea what is needed on this sled. Ideas anyone?

I found a nice, quiet  place for the starter solenoid tuckned away behind what will be the fiberglass body panels that will wrap around the battery/electric bay. I might even be able to squeeze the regulator in there somewhere too.

Bought two one inch ball bearings to serve as end caps for the rear fender support tubes. Just cut 40 percent off each bearing and welded them to the end of the one inch fender support tubes.

Having fun in the shop.... working on the electrical box for the new 8 circuit led fuse box. If you don't have a bike lift when you build a low rider, you spend as lot of time kneeling... or laying down and welding from that position. On the brighter side of things... it is great incentive to keep my shop floor swept and I am becoming very well acquainted with the baseboards and electrical outlets.

Cleaned years of crud, corrosion, and rust off the headlight assembly and got it ready for the wiring process. It shines like a mirror inside and out. On the inside of the headlight bowl, I painted the polished surfaces with a high gloss ceramic infused clear coat from PPG. Should prevent any additional corrosion in the future.

These are the final pieces of the electrical system to be installed. The regulator and the electrical bay with the fuse box can go in tomorrow morning. The bracket for the reserve lighting module, however, can only be welded from the bottom of the frame. So it will be another complete teardown tomorrow afternoon to complete that task. While the frame is naked... I'll take that time to clean up the last of my welds,  add my final gusseting,  and add the mounting plate for the air ride/drop system. Say good bye to the center stand. What's more, my bullet air filters arrived today. Getting so close to fiberglass and paint time that I can taste it.

Thanks John.... glad you stopped by. This is my first build from scratch and it seems to be going okay. Paint will be easy but... then comes making a wiring harness. I am afraid... very afraid. ???
