    Tried stitching a seat, figured I got nothing to lose, didn't come out half bad surprisingly







    Shaping softish foam with an angle grinder had a bit of a learning curve ha







    Ride to hard times show in worcester this past weekend. Still got some kinks to work out

    Will your front wheel take dual disks? If so, I have some low mile 40 spokes on my FXR, if they'll swap over I'm open to trade. I'm in northern RI, send me a PM if your interested.

    Ended up swapping with DrFxr for these awesome 40 spokes, everything swapped over perfectly, just had to cut a small spacer for the front

    Happened to find some rabbit ears for cheap and I'm happy with how this thing looks for now, or until winter at least

    Been itching to change things up since its gotten cold in mass. I had been meaning to clean up the wiring a bit but I was busy riding the thing so that was first on the list. Made a new exhaust next, adjusted the angle of the sissy bar and moved the pillion pad forward a bit.



    Was rolling it around like this to save garage space

    Finally decided on a different color for the bike. Black was always temporary. Decided to do an off-white/cream color for the frame, fender and tank

    Disassembly





    Filled in the hole in the neck gusset for the stock tank



    All sanded, finally



    Primed







    Working on stripping the black paint on my engine from the PO before reassembling

    Looks great, will be cool to see it put back together in this new look. Planning on any designs over the white or just like that?

    @drewl - can you give more info on the work you did with the seat? I have a ton of questions as I prep to make one myself... but here are 3 to start:

    What thickness of foam did you use when pleating the top panel?
    Did you spray-adhesive the panels onto the seat foam?
    Most importantly - how has it been holding up? Any ripped threads or busted seams?

    Thanks in advance for the info. Can't wait to see your bike back together.
