    This weekend was busy for both the bike build as well as other obligations

    Started working on the headlight

    decided to go with a more aerodynamic looking light and keep it stationary rather than being able to flip around
    as well as possibly addition (if there is enough time)

    using the reflector bracket to add to the stability
    just needs a little modifying

    Bolted up

    Also found the final puzzle piece
    really wanted to have this part on the bike for the voting
    so probably going to sacrifice some other stuff to get this done in time

    found at swap meet
    had the thin sheet metal (in black no less)
    as well as the louvers
    I think it used to be a case for an electronic device

    cutting it up (template of final shape sitting to the left)
    [​IMG]

    right side piece
    just need final trim then bolt together
    [​IMG]


    Also I was able to paint and number the mini tank piece
    Used nail polish to get that hand brushed lettering look
    [​IMG]
    still needs the back brackets attached

    And if your wondering about the number
    that is the state route # where the battle mountain race takes place

    here it is on the bike with the new paint job

    Should be able to mostly finish enough to get pics submitted by 7pm pst or 1 hour before deadline
    (fingers crossed)

    Here ate the side panels with louver inserts
    ended up bolting them in since i had a lot of these little bolts left over from my Junk Crafted Higgins build
    plus they kinda look like rivets
    wish i had more to show but I was in such a rush the rest where a blur

    There are a few minor things to do on it but had to make the deadline so this is as good as it gets right now

    To see the finished bike go here
