Wheels look great. I like that style a lot, the 550 has the slightly less cooler and more 80's version of those :'(
I have to agree with you there, they are a neat style for the late 70's/early 80's. I'll be selling the original 19" front and 16" rear wheels if someone were looking for them.adventurco said:Wheels look great.

Thx, Philly! Glad you like the look so far.PhillyThump said:Engine looks great! So does the build so far.
Can I ask how you masked your polished bits? I'm trying to do something similar and I keep coming up with complicated ways to get the mask right, but wondering if it's just as simple as being careful with your tape lines.
Hey djmaynard - The black headlight is now an aftermarket unit with a halo (for a little something different) from DCC. When I near the end of needing parts I plan to post a "Parts Used" list in case anyone is interested in specifics.djmaynard said:Maybe I missed it, but was that the original headlight or aftermarket?
adventureco - You are very right; I've been meaning to do just that for awhile now. I put the gaiters on thinking I would "just see how it looks real quick" but procrastination has gotten the best of me. I'll be using VHB to attach my flexible LED blinkers to the upper part of the shocks so I better get those dust caps off before I do that!adventurco said:pretty sure you're supposed to take the rubber dust boots off the front fork lowers when you run gaiters though they look a bit scrunched up the way you got em installed
Glad you like that gauge - It's pretty awesome. It can learn gear position and I've got a cylinder head temp. sensor feeding into it. Since I've messed with the wheels and diameters it gives me a lot flexibility. It's pretty compact which was my biggest draw. I've mounted it with a modified aluminum cell phone mount which worked out great.djmaynard said:Wow, LOVE that digital gage! Dime City tail light?
