same old, but so much more
it is sooooo close to being done. sort of. Tins re-mounted, slight bend in the top of the sissy, everything else in the drivetrain reassembled, and I even ran new brake lines since this pic was taken. And welded passenger peg mounts onto the frame rather than using the clamps that always seem to spun. And installed a Crane Hi-4 and a new low ohm coil. But alas, motor main seal still leaking (no worries, I have extra seals, some liquid sealant and a new spacer) and the bike wouldn't start. I'm going to take 5 days away from it. Then, its back to figuring it out. probably a simple wiring thing. and if worse comes to worse, Walter and/or Mike are getting a call.
I need a better pic of it all, but I'll wait until its actually a working motorcycle and not a 500 lb paperweight.
