    Time to get the brackets installed on the frame and start the tank panels. We used some scrap 1/8" on the brackets and .06 sheet metal for the tank panels. Louvers were also added to both sides on the tank panels.

    The louvered tank panels are something we have been wanting to do on a bike for a while.

    Now with all the parts fit and the fab work complete its time for paint. On this we are going with old school black. We want to do something a little different so we are going to do the frame in a black crinkle. All the other parts will be done in a matte black finish except for a few chrome nuts and bolts. On the fork we are doing the fork legs in matte black and leaving the triple clamps polished. We did change the rotors on the front and back wheels to the Clarks Skeletal 160mm rotors with the red centers. Once we throw down some pin stripes I think everything will pull together very nice.
