    Thanks for the love to those that have chimed in. Always appreciated.

    Getting the seat sorted out next. Semi elusive goal of a flat brat/scrambler style seat is looking like it will come together. Shaped the steel pan to lay on top of the frame tubes and pivot at the tank bolt. Couple of tabs in the rear locate it when it's down, may throw some velcro in there, otherwise gravity is our seat latch. Printed out a pic of a seat we liked and broght it and the pan to local upholstery shop. They got a little nervous that we were so specific as to the look of the seat and asked us to stay and babysit the foaming process. Fair enough, it was cool to see. $150 well spent.

    Returned later in the week to this lovely gem. Distressed mocha brown and ribbed for our pleasure.

    Balance of the powder coated parts are next and it'll be back on its wheels soon.

    Nice! Just went through the whole thread. I have some similar ideas for a 95 XL that's sitting on the table in the garage. You totally stole my "hoop" idea there, and I don't appreciate it. Haha. Nice to see that someone is already making one of those; might have to look that up.

    As for those new shocks, sounds awesome. I'll keep an eye out for those.

    Love it so far, gentlemen!

    Thanks man. We'll tell people the hoop was your idea. Seriously, though, it went on with zero drama. Surprised others have not done it before. Bonus points to Dime City in Florida for having a pre-bent unit, too.

    Someone had asked about the skid plate a few posts back. This one is rough proto. IF we get enough requests, we'll build it.

    Now that's classy! I thought that I deserved the credit for that one; right nice of ya!

    Well, my buddy ended up fabbing up something similar but much smaller on his Sporty a few months ago because he wanted to run his bike rear fenderless. Had to come up with something to mount a rear seat mount to. I liked his idea, just not the execution and what you guys are doing is much more what I was thinking.

    Anyway, bitchin.

    This one's a little out of order, but important enough to post anyway. Picked up an entire Triumph Scrambler exhaust system in the hopes of adapting the mufflers and some of the guards to this build.

    The look is awesome, but it causes massive packaging drama, so looking like its voted off the island for now. May come back to it at a later date.

    Parts are back from powder. Unwrapping freshly painted/powdered parts is like fricken' Christmas when we were 8YO. Can't help but smile.


    High heeled kickstand came out good.

    Photobucket



    Fork legs always look nice in black. Went with a James Gasket seal kit. Have to recommend this one. Seals, clips, drain bolt, etc all for a reasonable price. Nice work guys.

    Photobucket



    Belt tensioner is sorted as well. For the record, the spring is from a 1976 Honda CB550 kickstand. Worked perfectly.

    Photobucket


    Initial fork mock up. Looks good, but will want a fender for sure.

    Photobucket


    Black powdered pulley looks wicked. Here's a tip kids, always use the shouldered grade 8 bolts, always use LocTite and always torque to factory spec. Given the opportunity, your pulley bolts will back out and shear off as they hit swingarm. Ummm... A guy told us that could happen.

    Photobucket


    Got the fork sleeves on, and Kuryakyn signals sorted. We're thinking that's pretty sexy.

    Photobucket

    Stay tuned, more to come after this brief commercial break.

    Pretty much exactly what we did, too.
