Geez, if I had the patience.. I dig your work process. I also hope you are serious about the flames on the tank.

Haha glad you guys like the flames, im not commited yet. I'm thinking a matt dark navy or black on the gas tank with some gloss blue pinstripe flames to match the grips. The idea was inspired by this H2 street brawler.

Weekend update.... panels welded. Need to grind and planish the seams. Then only the seat, fender, and taillight mount left to fit

I don't doubt for a second you've already measured and taken into account the clearance but from the pics it looks like close enough to rub under compression. I love the shape.

Yessir. I have a inner fender shaped to the tire that will be cut and fit in once this shape is refined. Its easier to ensure continuity of the curve is its one big piece before I cut a giant hole in it.

Fenders in. I checked it at full compression and gave plenty of room for wheel adjustment and different tires profiles

This is getting further and further away from a dirt-bag build in ethos, but I'm still very close to the $1000 budget because I have been offsetting costs by selling parts that I'm not using. Its funny how you cannot get rid of a complete engine for nearly free, but by breaking it down I have easily made $500+ listing parts on ebay. I have not been greedy on prices, I have always listed the parts to be the cheapest listing so they sell quicker.

That being said, this Acewell gauge was the cheapest and easiest way to get a tach and speedo on the bike considereing the wheel size change. I used the gift certificate I received from this site for winning "bike of the month" a couple years ago so this gauge was very cheap in the end. I also fabricated this dash for some idiot lights while I was at it. I've had that oil light in a drawer for 8 years....this is why I hoard.

Seat it mostly there. Gotta figure out my taillight mount and its done. I went way overboard on the mounting system because i wanted it to be quick release but also hidden.
