Cool man. A gn400x was my first road bike when I was 15. Wish I would have kept it. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

And a mock up with the original tank, old sportster seat and fender, just going to clean up the fender and mount it and the seat and a new mount for the rear of the tank then cut the wire harness down, and mount the exhaust, just a quick little project..

I had to shave about 3/4" off the hub to fit the rear end as I kept it narrow..for the hub to fit the new frame..see how it works as its looking like just barely enough room for the chain between the frame and tire..no pics of that so you can use your imagination.

I used the stock fender, just narrowed it a inch.. A old seat I had and now am on to wireing.. I have to make a tail light and plate holder, add a battery, and figure out the wires then it will be ready for paint...hope to get it fired up in a week.

1st chance you get, pick up one of those ignitors that fire that engine. They are notoriously prone to failure in their old age, and damn hard to find when you need one. New ones aren't made. Great little motors.
