Default test fitting...

some more test fitting...

Im not married to the seat and rear fender yet... if i use them i think i would cut some foam out of the seat and lower the rear of the fender a bit to match the curve of the wheel thats just where the bolt holes lined up.... I still might just go with a tracker tail....

Default slow day...

Not much progress today I did get the fender marked for holes where i wanted it.. the alloy rear fender is growing on me.... gonna go with the stock 83 color and decals on the new tank... i have a NOS petcock somewhere in my stash of goodies... I need to pull the trigger on a new wiring harness.... im rapidly blowing through my budget



the question now becomes to frame loop or not to frame loop. I wasn't gonna go into the engine but E cams and 10.5 pistons has some allure..

Default made a couple of bearing spacers

so so to keep this project moving i made a couple of bearing spacers for the 19" front to rear conversion today... So tomorrow I will set up the preload mount the rotor and PBI alloy sprocket and make the adapter for the 2014 rear caliper carrier... the caliper is a tiny 4 piston setup on a 260mm rotor so i have to make an adapter out to 11.5 to use my floating sunstar rotor...
