    Any progress on this? Mind showing a couple more pics with the hard tail on? Thinking about picking one up from them, for only $225 it's hard not to, would really like to see a profile shot of it on the frame though.

    Not a lot of progress. Lots of tack welding then welding then grinding then welding then measuring then grinding then welding then repeat. LOL This is from a couple days ago. Motor is back in now so I can figure out my brake and shifter and pegs. The forks will be lowered internally I just have them raised so I could get it level.

    Love the tank. Where did you get it and also, did you add the line to it or did you buy it that way?

    Thanks man. Actually found the tank on eBay for 95 bucks. Couldn't pass it up. I added the fuel Gauge myself. Talk about being nervous, that first hole nearly did me in lol. Just another small update I started chopping the factory wiring harness tonight and actually had it running for just a bit. We're in the home stretch boys.

    Coming along nicely, if you need a bare bones wiring diagram I have one saved somewhere in my phone. Just let me know if you want me to dig it out. What are the plans for the pipes? Doing anything custom? I love seeing what people come up with for pipes on these inline-4s.

    I have several wiring diagrams I'm using but having another never hurts. Thanks. I have V&H 4 into 1 that I was running, I'm thinking of cutting it off at the collector and just running the individual pipes straight back under the bike. Or maybe 2 on one side and 2 on the other. Really don't know yet. Lol. Nothing freaky like I've seen some pointing up in the air😂

    I think I got the rear brake figured out last night. We'll the hard part any way. I'm using the stock lever because I don't want forward controls and I don't want to spend the money on something else. Here is my set up. Sorry for the blurry pic.




    Any opinions on weather this will work ok, and how does it look? I noticed after the second pic that the rod looked at an angle so I fixed that already. Also hooked up the return spring to the pin holding the rod to the linkage. Al that's left is hook up the break light switch.

    Looks pretty damn good. I'd prob lessen the angle where the plunger u made goes into the master. Other then that it looks terrific.

    As he pushed the pedal it will straighten out, if he lessens it there, it would bind,

    I understand that but it kinda looks like it's to far over to one side even in the start of the stroke. But maybe it's the angle of the photo.

    Yes the angle was to much in that pic. I straightened it out more after the pic. Brake lines should be here tomorrow so we will see if it works

    Well yesterday I did it. Got my chain on, wheel lined up and started figuring out the wiring. after a couple hrs I couldnt take it anymore. I hooked up the battery, set it on the frame and used tape to hold it behind my seat. Hooked up the electrics, start button and off switch. bundled and tapes all the wires next to motor. Installed my exhaust and fired it up. Well thats not good enough on a running bike, right? So I unloaded it off the work table, welded on the kick stand and set there contemplating my safety, LOL. OK, front brake, eh no need. Back brake, check. Shifter, check. Clutch, check. Off switch, check. OK fired that puppy up and headed around the block. What a rush, I forgot how fast this sucker was. It's only been 2 months since I rode it. So I still have to get a tail light, head light, battery, rear fender, battery, and wire it. So far I'm way ahead of schedule for this "winter project". Hopefully I can keep moving forward at this pace. After I'm done I'm going to upload some detail pics of the stuff I've had to fab and such.
