    Swapped the seat guts around so they are up under the seat more. Took it for a test ride. Feels a lot better. Now to find a better stem

    Have an idea for one more addition to the front end. Going to try and mock it up tomorrow. If I like it I'll post pics.

    I like how the brake line makes it look like a super cool sharpie doodad on the front. Maybe an actual sharpie doodad would look cool. :D

    After installing the new stem I have changed my plans a bit. I was going to make a cafe racer style fairing to cover the front some but I like the new stem too much to cover it up. Think I going to add some lights though. [​IMG]

    That's a cool stance with the re-jigged forks!

    Slick bike. Every time I see red brick bricks I want to buy a set. I used some on Firewing and loved them.

    That green was ugly. I love old chrome.

    Have not done much on the bike lately. Tore the meniscus in my right knee. It's feeling a little better now but it is too dang hot in the garage to be in there very long. Put some different peddles on this morning.

    I love them for racing . Feels almost like standing on the ground. My big feet don't get sore when I use them.

    Has this fast looker crossed the 'finished' line? If so, race it on up to the Finished Build thread that has just been posted.

    Pick your favorite photo for the top of your thread, that will be your Voting Photo. Add some cool process pics and a link to your build thread.

    Bring it on home! :thumbsup:

    I think I'm going to call this one complete. Was hoping to do a little more but a torn meniscus and a concussion have slowed me down some.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
