This was an entry in the MBBO #5 and missed the deadline due to paint. Here it is now with all the extras I was able to add with more time. You can follow the build in the two threads posted below.

This was a tough bike to finish because parts are finicky and expensive for these models. If you can get the sissy bar out in one piece, someone should make you a trophy! I had a lot of fun with the 3d printer on this one, and made many custom parts. I printed the headlight bracket, turn signal housing, radio mount, horn button housing, dust cap, and Canadian maple leaf valve covers. The seat cover was sewn by me on a sewing machine. My first ever. The powder coat is Cosmo Blue courtesy of Dale Wilson at DW Metal Expressions. It was a lot of fun, and I'm very happy with the end result.

Looks great! Would you happen to still have the orange seat strap? I'm cleaning up my 1970 Fastback 100, and looking to replace the broken one on mine.

Nice bike. You know... I definitely kept it, but god knows where it is since I renovated my garage and moved all of my boxes and tool boxes. I'll keep you posted. Where are you located?
