Toxic pipes arrived today, so just waiting on a few things before I can start assembling....



1. remaining parts out to powder coating. (maybe another week)
2. bearings and bolts, and seals (on the way)

Will probably assemble it completely before I send fenders and tank out for paint. At this point, not sure if I am going to chop or change fenders, will decide once it is together.

Still undecided, at this point going to assemble everything with bare metal skins, then decide. I have changed out the rear fender and gas tank, so want tofit everything before having paint done.

Received Metzler tires today. Went with ME880's and chose largest tire I could fit on stock rims. Hopefully I can get them installed on the rims this weekend.
