    Used another part from the satellite dish to make a connection between the seat stay and the rear rack 20180603_123820.jpg 20180603_141229.jpg then wanted to see how everything was looking so I did a quick Mock up 20180603_195109.jpg
    Not sure if I am going to stay with the stock tank or figure out something else

    Didn't like the way the stock tank looked just looked to small. Found a piece of metal that they use on tile roof ridges. Thought it was a good size to make a tank out of forgot to get pick before I cut it out just got to excited to get started. 20180606_190119.jpg 20180609_192644.jpg
    Remembered I had what I guess might be a air cleaner cap nut thingy thought gas cap 20180609_192735.jpg
    Now to get ready for paint

    Might have went a little to big but the other was too small to me. It looked ok when it was a step thru but not as a boys.

    Solid build here, gender swap and using parts from all kinds of unlikely sources. Fun stuff, lets see more....

    Decided to change the wood I was going to use for my rack when I saw the cabinet guy was throwing away this spacer. 20180701_233739.jpg
    Cut it to size and wrapped the edge with a piece of 3/4 wide by 1/16 thick aluminum 20180701_233300.jpg 20180701_233231.jpg

    Got some paint on the fenders and playing around with some pinstripe. Not sure if I am just going to do just the stripes down the fender or put some on the skirt too. 20180704_155032.jpg 20180704_155017.jpg

    I think just having the stripes on the fender will look better.
