    By far a killer build. I'm over here kicking myself in the butt after seeing everything I sold you come to life ahaha. I'm glad you can use the light. Araya51 hooked me up with that but I didn't anticipate how big it actually was. Are you gonna paint it to match?? I'll text you some pics later I found a couple kool little things u might like u can have em for free. Great build man.

    The light will end up black bell with a red ring. Fits in for what comes in phase 2 .

    Yes, Free.99 is a great price, always willing to use free stuff ;-)

    Ran out of wire, but have the tank about 75% there.

    Took that old newer tank I had and cut it up.
    [​IMG]
    Welded mounting nuts to the tank and sized it.

    I've been happy with how its all coming together. I've had this last week off, that helped, so hot (108 most days this last week), I wasn't about to do yard work this week... picked an item off the (honeydew asks) and then 2 or 3 items on transforming this bike. Was a great week.

    In the morning, I'm gonna put the seat back on it and ride it down to the car guys get together. Its about 7 miles round trip. Wish I had that kick stand finished...

    Red Kote in the tank. Will wait a couple days and put a second coat in it.

    I made this today. Took some aluminum channel a friend gave me and bent, then soldered together with aluminum rod.

    Just one problem . . . your project is most definitely misnamed! Very nice work.
