    Still plugging along, starting in on building the exhaust.

    I really like Regatta Garage's exhaust fab tools, I was having a hard time wrapping my head around things.

    looking good, any particular reason you ditched the 5 speed for the 4?

    I really wanted a kick start. Looking at adding a kickstart kick to the 5 speed looked to be an expensive proposition to do right. The cheap kicker kits didn't inspire much confidence. I had 4 speeds laying around in parts and decided to throw one together. In the end I get the same final drive and snagged a nice belt drive on the cheap that ties it together. I was using an internal belt set up for a Softail but now I can ditch all the stock primary stuff.

    Just about finished with the exhaust. Not super happy with where I put the break but I can always make another. Finish smoothing these guys out and it's off to chrome.

    Well, it's been a minute and a few things have changed on this build.

    Ditched the coffin tank and went back to a Sportster. Chromed the exhaust and a ton of odds and ends.

    Decided it would look better in paint so my buddy Ricky Bongos Powdercoated the frame and tins for me.

    Grabbed some AMF style decals and Paper Street Custom goodies to tie the bike together.

    Finishing up some final adjustments and chasing down a few gremlins and I'll be tearing up the streets.

    I had no issues, a quick shot of powdercoat and clear. Looks good, no leaks. One little ding, but It was probably from me...

    I had forgot about this. Seems as though I liked it before, and I still like it now. Nice work

    When we fired it up I had a leak from the cheap aftermarket oil filter mount I bought. My buddy found this old Merch Performance unit. I just need to source an element for it and I think it perfectly matches the aesthetic of the bike.

    So far the bike is living up to its name, that'll teach me to have a green bike.
