Guess I should list some info about it,
Sportster peanut tank
11inch shorty shocks
Dyna fairing
Uni pods From an 83 750
12inch Frisco bars
Made some headlight ears
Made a sissy bar out of chain
Princess auto rear fender
Everything painted in Bed liner. That's all I can think of as of now, time to go work on bike so I have more to post. Enjoy!

Lookin good so far man. I am also building a 79' CB650. How did the sportster tank fit? Need any modifications? And did you narrow the princess auto fender? I have the same one and its too wide as is....but I think I am going to ditch the shorty shocks and "hard tail" it this weekend....not a full hard tail but lock out the swing arm kinda deal. I'll be following your build though as Its nice to see another Canadian chopping things up and even better to be doing so on the same bike as me lol.
Who knows maybe we'll cross paths one day at a red light in cow town if I'm back visiting lol

Hey Juan, the Sportster tank actually lines up with the existing tank holes on the frame but I didn't like how low it sat so I drilled and tapped 1/4 20's an inch higher and mounted it that way. And for the fender I did narrow it by 1" but I plan on running wider tire down The road, just make sure when you cut it you clamp it flush all over before tack it

I don't think I am going to narrow my fender actually. Figure if I chop and modify the frame further I'll just make it wide enough to run the fender. With my current skinny homemade seat and tiny fender the rear end looks too skinny behind the wide stock tank. Needs a little "junk in the trunk" lol

If I remember correctly, keep in mind I wasn't very sober lol. The fender measures 7.5" in width and inside frame width is 6.75". I left about 2" past the shock eye mount to mount my signals and welded the sissy bar on the end the chain link was The same size as the end of the frame I cut off worked out perfectly. should post some pics Juan

Ok I'm pretty sure I have seen your thread, I'll look again.
Well I figured out my fender mount ,I'm going to run it strutless and I hope by having rubber inbetween both the fender to bracket and bracket o swingarm ,should eat up most of the vibrations.hope that made sense I've been in the garage for a few hours now and they're goin Down like water . Lol

Will be watching to see how that mounts up and what kind of results you get out of it! Also updated my thread with some photos that are more up to date in case you went to look lol
