    Haven't been on in a while, but I'm still working on the 900 whenever I have time. I completely forgot I had started this thread but there are pics floating around the forum. I've changed my mind on where I wanted to go with the bike so many times I suppose it'd have been a cluster fuck of a thread anyway LOL. Here's how she sits right now, until I get the frame taken care of. I had a guy to weld the frame but that fell through but all the other little shit is pretty much done. I built a bare bones wiring harness using factory plugs, used a box from Home Depot to mount the switch and hold all the plugs for the ignition and charging system. All the old controls from the bars are gone, just a basic on/off and a starter button. The headlight is actually just a KC Daylighter housing with a Hella in it. The shocks are 11" and the forks have been lowered as well, and the kick stand was shortened a bit. Been riding the Biltwell seat for a while, once the frame is done I'll build my own custom seat. The tank is just an old Frisco'd peanut and the fender is from a Dyna, shortened it up and got it to fit. Oh, and the forward controls. I used TC Bros controls for the 750C, and modded them as well as the frame to make them work. It was close to begin with but not quite a perfect fit. They actually sit a little higher than they would normally but it helps with clearance so I can still lean her pretty hard and not scrape the pavement.

    LOL I'll get some better pics. I'll also get her done as soon as I find someone to handle the welding. I don't weld for shit and can't really practice since I don't have proper electrical service in the garage.

    Bike is coming together. One thing though, ditch the four square. I tthink it detracts from the look of the bike. If your stuck on using a box at least get an fs box. Of course this is entirely up to you.

    I tend to agree the electrical box isn't the best idea, but it was an easy solution at the time. Didn't have anything lying around that would have been suitable, and without a welder I couldn't have made anything better The battery is actually going to be relocated when the frame gets done and I'll come up with a new box for the electrics.

    Time to bring this back from the dead. I pretty much haven't touched this bike in two years and I won't bother with excuses but in the end I just lost fucking interest and I'm getting the itch to work on her again so here I am. I've gone back and forth on whether I want to hardtail her or not but I have ultimately decided to keep tue rear suspension. In fact I'm considering an entirely different direction after seeing a bike that was done by MHC in France. Kind of a tracker style, but they went single backbone with a really narrow tank that gives it a nice "all motor" sort of vibe. I look at that bike and it just looks fucking right to me. So I'm on the fence about going that route or keeping the brat-ish look and maybe doing a Kong job. Either way the outer backbones gotta go so...

    Here's how it's sat for the last two years. I did strip the tank recently, thought about just letting it patina and was maybe going to run a bare steel bobtail fender, cut real short. But whatever...

    And here's the bike from MHC that really has become my inspiration.

    If I go this route I want to use a Wassell-style tank for a bit more capacity, with a high tunnel to let the tank hug the motor a bit. I'd of course be changing the bars and making a new seat, going back to mids, and I'd change the exhaust as well.

    In the meantime I've mocked up the new battery location and I'm building an all new harness. Some of the old wires are really brittle and I had already gotten it down to the bare essentials but I wasn't happy with how hacked up it was. The electrical box will be either under the seat or right behind the battery but I'm still figuring that out.

    Forgot to mention I'm also ditching the stock carbs. I really wanted to get rid of the airbox and while it's possible to tune the CVs it's also a giant pain innthe balls. They also need a rebuild and between the cost of a decent rebuild kit and the hassle of splitting the bank apart I decided to go with a pair of 36mm Mikuni VMs. They'll be mounted on a set of 2-1 intakes I'm building. For those I'm going to braze up some 1.5" copper.
