The headlight is in position. Now Iíll use tig rod to wireframe the front fairing to make sure I get the flow right. Then Iíll start hammering more aluminum.

I finished up the front support and headlight mount. Now Iím roughing in the aluminum front fairing. It still needs a lot of tweaking and trimming, but showing itís shape and flow with the tank.

Amazing work, looks fantastic!

That front wheel is way too small, see 4th pic above.

I just caught a glimpse of those header guards.  I love them.  Your make, or off the shelf?
