This is where it stands, need a few more little parts and it will be on the road

Finished the foot brake lever
Used an old shifter for the round tube, it was a perfect fit


Shortened the factory spline shaft and lever



Renthal handlebars support as my brake stay


Clears the exhaust



How she looks now, i think this is the paint idea im gonna go for, two tone, blue and black. reverse the colors on the fender and match the oil tank.




Finally added a kickstand, this is before i clean up the welds and smooth it out


Soon hopefully very soon, it will be finished or at least drive-able

I think I have figured out the paint theme i will go with...

Black and blue prob metal flake blue of some sort...
The silver on the oil tank will be black, and all the lines will be straight, this painters tape is just so i can change it until i like it

I love that exhaust. What is it, and how does it sound?
