First attempt? Excellent work man. What tools did you use? Always interested to learn more about metal shaping!

Thanks! Im lucky my dad has some experience, the tools and was willing to teach me i used an electric metal cutter, an English wheel, a pipe wrench, and a small hammer and anvil.

and patience, a lot of patience

Yeah they look really good. Follow the lines perfectly, and the seat will tie everything together nicely no doubt. Nice job

Small update: made some proper fixing brackets for the side covers and created an fixture for the seat using the original latch an lock, whilst my dad started working on a battery box

Made a start with the seat, i think the hump should be a little bit smaller. What do you guys think?

I concur - looks good. Follows the tank line, and the profile looks just right. I like it a lot

Looking good man, the metal side panels are something to be proud of, especially for a first attempt. The hump looks well proportioned but personally its ever so slightly too high especially when you consider the black seat base you see. will enjoy following this one.
