    Good point Dusty, I guess this will just give me some initial hope. I will dump her out and try gasoline tonight and rig it up to sit in a pan.

    P.S. I have a cousin we refer to as Dirty Dave. lol

    Well I was fairly un lucky tonight.
    My plan was to get the (2) tank mount bungs welded into the frame and weld up the oil tank bracket to the frame as well.

    I drilled and ground the hole for the first lower bung and wouldn't you know it I dropped the bung in the hole (Bung hole) took me 45 minutes to fish it out from the bottom of the center tube with a magnet.

    I then got it welded in and looking good. Started the upper bung which is right where the thread rod is now. Because of the weld around the original rod i broke a drill bit and my step bit nor me die grinder bit will touch it. (Carbide bits come tomorrow)

    Lastly I welded up the oil tank bracket/tab. Everything was fine and then my stainless bolt gulled up when putting it back in. Sure enough i broke the bolt off in the tab. Cut the damn thing off and will have to make another.

    1 Step forward 2 steps back ! Hopefully tomorrow will go better.

    Made a new oil tank mounting tab. Went with a through hole this time vs a tapped hole. Was able to get that welded on halfway decent.

    My carbide bits came in for my die grinder so I went to town on the upper tank mount bung and got the tank properly fitted to the bike.

    Cut a seat pan and started to brainstorm some ideas on mounting and how the back support area will look.

    Did a quick sit test and I think 4 or 5 inches of foam is what feels the best on the cheeks. After the seat is wrapped and compressed I am hoping it will be roughly 2" tall.

    Might bounce back and forth between the fender and seat until I have it all figured out.

    No sign of gas leakage from the tank, been about 12 hours now.

    Got some special heat wrap in for the harness. Shouldn't notice it too much once the tank is in place.

    Started into the seat pan. Still figuring shit out as I go... this might be the first of many pans before i get it right lol.

    Of course I ran my bottle empty tonight... I will blame my poor welds on that this time around lol.

    Will most likely hit up Walmart for a yoga mat or kneeling pads as it seams like that would be easier than the foam I purchased.

    I love a nice tight rear fender and you are right there. All the work going into your seat should payoff nicely as well.

    I am hoping so Doom lol. I have only made solo seat pans in the past and left them un covered so this is definitly a bit of a challenge for me. I am attempting to make something similar to the le pera signature 2 or the drag specialties scorpion.

    Waiting on some more hardware/bungs for the seat and fender install so I decided to make a new intake "housing" as the one I had was pretty half ass thrown together a few years back. Didn't get her complete but I think you guys can see what im going for in the last picture.

    Added some rear gussets to the seat pan. Will be drilling (4) holes and welding in bolts that will pass through to the bottom. The (2) in the rear will pass through some brackets I weld onto the frame. The front (2) will bolt to a piece of flat bar that will then bolt to the frame. The idea is to give my seat a little bit of adjustment front to rear. Hoping I can start speeding up the process so I can ride this damn thing this season.

    Looking good! Will your mount allow you easy access to the battery and circuit breaker?

    Doom,
    My battery is actually accessible from the lower left side of the bike. Its in a wooden box. The rest of the main electrical is in the saddlebag on the rear of the bike. I shouldn't really need to take the seat off for anything unless I am pulling the oil tank out.

    Got the front seat bracket bung tapped. Decided to paly around with the yoga mat foam and the high density foam from Joanne Fabrics. The Yoga mat is roughly .50" thick but a little too firm. The green HD foam is too soft and at 2" thick its hard to work with. I think my plan is to go 3 layers of yoga mat and then try out some gel seat pad material i just ordered from Amazon...

    Sorry for the lag in updates, I threw my back out moving the kids bean bag in the living room lol.

    Been taking it easy but I have a little progress on the seat. This is officially the first part on the bike that I have painted lol.

    Back is feeling a bit better, got on the floor and did some fitting for the fender. Going to bring the fender to work tomorrow now that all 6 bungs are at least fit on so I can have a friend (Who actually knows how to weld) tig weld them. Also got the front seat bracket bung in place. Going to stop at the local tailor/upholstery guy tomorrow with the seat to see what they can do for me. If they can get it covered in a week or two I will most likely let them tackle it.
