Default more Parts is Parts...

got my new seat today... i was gonna recover the old one but since it was not an original i didn't bother.. I may recover the seat pan later but im in the middle of of recovering the seats in my boat and the sewing machine is set up for white vinyl

The made in USA stainless exhaust clamps and all stainless hose clamps for the heat shields showed up as well...

Its gettin near time to pull it down again, clean everything, yank the motor and prep the frame and do the minor welding on the swingarm (Weld on the new lower shock mounts) then the final assembly can begin...

the fuel tank, oil tank, and the ignition module tin are gonna go to paint...

I have no patience for body work or finish carpentry.. I may however paint the tank, oil tank, and ignition module cover myself.

Im a little cramped for space here.... I also need to go back to NY and get the rest of my tools.. I miss my plasma cutter, Mig Welder, 20 ton press, bead roller, brake, dimple dies, cold saw....

made the fender brackets on the mill and then used a belt sander to radius them... the shock mounts were drilled on the mill then cut out with a cutting wheel and then shaped on the belt sander...
