GR650......starting over for the last time

Heaven is so far away.
Small updates: stock Bandit fender fitted up (but not bolted up), stainless brake lines that are way too long, etc:

I've been mostly concentrating on the seat though. Here's a rough idea I have for the taillight mount - this plate will be independent of the actual seat.

Another bad picture of the rear end:



The GS550 plastics will be cut up some more, and I melted a sheet of ABS to be used as the new seat pan support.

Nice, getting closer to paint!

The engine cradle is actually pretty much ready for powder / paint. The seat subframe still needs some tabs and such added to it. The big thing for the seat frame is the airbox mounts / battery mounts / etc / etc. But that's another good reason they are separate from each other....

That looks like a motorcycle to me.

More "soapbox racer" than motorcycle. But all in due time.

Sorry gents, nothing new to report here. Still....not 100% up to snuff, and busy with life.

I'm getting tired of tripping over this damn pile of steel and fiberglass in the middle of the garage though.

LOL if it wasn;t for Meg posting what you are up too on FB we'd never know if you were alive or dead. Hurry up with the new floors and making the house pretty and get back to making this bike awesome. ;D

Pretty dang frustrating with big white squares and little icons instead of actual photos...

Sorry Paul, I don't know what the problem is.... I just checked a couple pages and they all showed up for me.
