    Thanks man. It will come past it by an inch or more. It will be recessed in the pocket by about 1/4".

    Got my foot controls done......Just need to put some limits on the pedals, and I think my clutch is stuck
    Just another thing on the list to fix I guess.
    Got the petcock and bungs in the tank, and the wife stopped by to approve the footpeg position.

    Chugging along at 6 man hours a week. Got the lower ball joint mounted this week, will be able to start on the control arms soon. Steered upright is coming out spot on in terms of dimensions and alignment, but is well over target weight. Leaves me no worries about strength, and has all the adjustments I wanted, so a good model to use as a base for a second gen made of lighter material and without the added weight of optional adjustments.
    Also figured out what should be a better way to jig up the control arm supports. Basically build a big wooden triple clamp type deal to hold them in position, then weld to the frame. Makes sure the are aligned to the original headset, and is much easier than tying to jig them to align to the motor mounts as I had been planning. With a good jig like that, I won't need to worry nearly as much about precision cutting the support pieces, and may be able to use the metal worker in the shop as a monster nibbler to cut them.

    Edit - added photos with ball joint mounted. Had to cut the mounting hole with a hole saw on my drill (machine shop is being moved) which took FOREVER. That bridge plate has WAY to much metal in places it doesn't need, next step is to shave it down and drill in some lightness, once the machine shop is back up. Same with the upper mount and some other bits. Ball joint bolt holes were tapped into the bridge plate, so the threads won't ovalize the holes and allow shifting under brake loading.

    Ball joint can also be mounted on top side of bridge plate, which changes the anti-dive behavior (makes it weaker, but with a higher slope- IE, the shown position might range 80-110%, top position would range 30%-90%).

    Been having some issues with my back again but have gotten some stuff done. Front end is rebuilt and powder coated. Shaved the fender mounts in the process. got the bars done as well as the fender mount. Polished the "spear point" part of the Devils tail and powder coated the rest. Got most of the molding on the tanks done and primed/wet sanded. Motor is re assembled and got the pipes started today.

    Default Kawi GPz750 build...

    Just a short update- haven't been working too much on the build as I have been buried at work, and the weather has been great here in Tahoe, so more riding than wrenching.

    But... Got the frame back from the Fab shop today, and fuck if he didnt make the tail 4 iches too long. I verified the measurements with him twice, but he just went ahead and did what he thought was best. So Im gonna go with it anyway, and see how it turns out- it just wont have the short tail feel i was going for. But im gonna just rattle can the paint myself now versus powder coat, so if I end up chopping it up later cause it sucks, i wont have that much $$ into the color. Also got the forks torn down, man that oil was nasty. gonna finish stripping them, soak 'em for awhile and then rebuild them. Also got the bearings out, so the rims are ready for sandblasting and paint too.

    I made some new aluminum carb tops......And moved the headlight.........Built some brakes.......
    The chop is Bike of the Month on The Yamaha Forum, which is pretty cool.
    Tins left Friday with the painter, I was gonna get one of the awesome guys off here to do them, but I've known this guy for about 8 years, hes got a true booth in his garage at home, and hes an old school biker. When I bumper into him a few weeks back he was stoked to do them, bonus is hes just up the road.
    Motor comes out of the frame Tuesday so we can get everything welded/drilled for wires/tabs for all the lines, and out to powdercoat end of the week.......

    Almost off topic, but still cool.

    The other day, my mom(who works for me), was kind of making fun of my shop monkey for the little bell on the Duece he just bought. And as much as I was making fun of him anyways, I had to stop her and explain the concept of the Gremlin bell.
    I guess if you dont know, you wouldnt undertand.
    She asked why I didnt have one on mine, and I explained because noone had ever given me one. I had a friend/customer of mine here and he overheard, and today stopped by with coffee, and a little velvet bag, and he told me it would help with my trip.

    Very stoked......Its a dumb little piece, but I love it.
    And it made for a perfect opportunity. My daughter is a huge part of this thing, and this is the first piece shes taken start to finish without me stepping in somewhere along the line.
    She made a little cardboard template, programmed it out, cut it on the cnc, cleaned it, and welded it up.

    Needless to say I've got a big shit eating grin on my face, and I'm seriously proud of her.

    Well it's been a bit since I've updated. I've been busy with other stuff but I have gotten a little done.

    I got my 21" mini drum mounted up on the front. Had to turn down the axle then turn a spacer to flesh it back out inside the fork leg. I got it mounted up. I just need to turn the spacer for the other side yet..







    I also got my rear wheel and a new tire. I can't seem to find anything wider than a 4.00-18 and I didn't get the tread I wanted so I'm not real tickled with the result. I need a different fender too.







    I turned some solid riser bushings and the start to my riserless handlebars.
