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.
This is the bike just after I bought it.
