Tuck and Roll....

Making this seat for someone.  Got the pocket made to cover the gas tank mount, and finished making the channel for the stock rear fender.  Finished spot welding most of it.  Just have to finish welding and clean some things up.  Then weld on some mounting brackets, and it should be ready to go....

Well i finally got the front wheel mounted.  Althought when I got it back from the shop there were bubbles coming from the valve stem... hopefully they were just from air trapped between the tire and the tube, and not the tube going flat... Its coming together now.... lots of little stuff to build...

Almost Rollin

Got the back wheel ready to be put on the bike.  Mounted the rear fender but I still need to drill some holes to mount it.  Brakes are almost ready to be tightened up and bled.  Tomorrow I think im going to cut and fit the chain.  Hopefully I dont have any issues with the chain slapping the swingarm with that smaller sprocket in the rear. 

Found a shop that should be able to mount my front tire.  The kind of bad mouthed the shop that tried to do it, so hopefully they know what they are doing.  Cross my fingers....

Still havent got my wheels back from the shop.  They ordered tubes, the recieved the wrong size and then destroyed one of the valve stems... ?  Now they have to order another tube... heh.  Should be have them by friday to work over the weekend.  

Got to get in and finish clearing the tank.  Might need some wet sanding to get rid of some orange peel on the top but fairly happy.
