Over the last few days here and there been able to get some work done. Thursday after work I was able to get the mask and main color on the tanks then let them dry for a day. Friday took the vinyl paint mask off and cleared then mocked them up on the frame.

Saturday started getting some parts on the frame mainly the springer and crank.

Today went to the hardware store to get a couple nuts and bolts for the seat clamp and steam. Got back got the wheels, handle bars, tanks mounted, then hooked the shifter up. Messed up the paint on the chain guard so have to repaint that and get the chain on.

Waiting on the handle grips to come in should be here by Thursday. Hopefully have everything finished by Saturday and get some final pics.

I have to admit that I wasn't a fan of the double wood inserts, but that is because I didn't see the full vision. With the paint scheme and the graphics, they are a knockout. Great job!!

Great build! I really didn't see your final vision until you got it painted and reassembled but, wow, it really came together. Beautiful bike, well done!
