    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
    IMAG1354_91448b0429f348eb0a58152517e4777f944e9eff.jpg

    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.

    IMAG1371_8feb23fb07e1a228a6b4cf55e4600396e09832e2.jpg

    Finally added a kickstand, this is before i clean up the welds and smooth it out
    IMAG1372_bd2e46d4ea10e123297eab2f871648639a82883f.jpg

    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

    none, but I once cleaned up the intake manifold to get a check engine light to go out. Once owned an s2000, but Honda pissed me off.
    I plan to do exactly this. how I go about it exactly, I don't know just yet... not sure if I'm just going to go with a donor bike and chop the hell out of it, or just go straight for a frame and buy a cb750 motor for it... I want a fat rear tire with custom rims, a wee bit of rake - no more than 45 degrees and some ape hangers...
