    Thanks guys!!

    Not much new to report but .........I got these for Christmas



    And we mocked them up... Cant wait till shes running again so I can hear em!



    And got the Biltwell Whiskey throttle mounted . I gotta be honest , when it first came in I wasnt that impressed with it. I mean its well made but I thought it was overpriced. But......
    after installing it , I feel much, MUCH better about spending the bucks on it. Sturdy and smooth.



    Still waiting on the breakers so we can finish wiring.

    Ok. So havent got back on the wiring yet. But I had a little time today so I shot the tank with a dar sealer.



    Then an Aluminum base.



    Then taped up the panels





    Then mixed some black cherry candy with some spectrum flake. Now this isnt cleared so the candy and flake doesnt really show yet.





    Its far from done . the panels will have some stuff going on .

    And I got these in today so tommorrow we tear into the wires again

    Looking good Gabe. Cool to see you taking a shot at the paint, but Rene is onto something. It just wouldn't be right at this point if you didn't have to paint the tank 3 times. Im still hoping to have a frame in the garage to mess with soon, but clearly I can't use that Aris-style triangle headlight now since another brother from TX has used it on his winter build.

    Hope you can ride this thing down our way for the "Psycho de Mayo Run" in May. Plenty of time to button everything up by then. Cheers from Austin.

    IT'S ALIVE!!

    Got the wiring figured out.......well she runs. Still got to wrap, tuck and hide everything.
    Used Billdozer's method but with a few tweaks. Kept the VOES and a starter button and relay.
    But used his breaker panel idea.



    And Lance while he was powder coated some stuff for his build and some customer parts , he did my bars and headlight bracket.



    chipping away at it.

    Not a whole lot more to report but . Drilled another hole in the side panel above the breakers for my starter button.



    and started chopping on the rear end. some tease pics




    probably still a month out of haveing this thing done, maybe 6 weeks. With day job, kids sports and working on customer parts as well. Not going as fast as I hoped but gotta plenty of time before spring.
