I'm going to try and start a build thread for my ace. Its a 1996 Honda Shadow 1100 A.C.E. Got it on the cheap and it looked like a fun bike to cut up. Ill try to update it as often as possible.

In the process of dishing the tank. And can someone tell me how the hell to post bigger photos?

They're plenty big- you just have to click on them.
I get images to post full size by not locally re-hosting them. I just keep them all in an Imgur album and use the image link tool.

Haven't really made any more progress but i have some pics of when i cut up the tank i thought i would share.
I cut the original breather portion out of the inside of the tank to free up a little room. The new filler neck and cap are vented so ill be alright getting rid of it.

I have i bunch of parts and sheet metal i just need to find time. I'm working on pulling the motor so i can drop it off to have custom cams made for it. while its there I'm going to have him hog out the carbs, then once i get it all put back together it'll will be dyno tuned. pics to come

I haven't touched the bike for a couple months, to busy working on other people stuff. My plan is to the exhaust done next weekend, then I can pull the motor and send the frame off to the blaster. I did get my helmet painted that's going to kinda match the bike when it's done, pretty happy with how it cam out.63904
