Test fit pipes. Too long. Either cut them or get a shorter pair. Kinda dig the slash cut so I'll probably just go with a shorter set.

Man, these things are fugly. Sold as "polished" but it looks like it was just washed with some kind of shiny crap. Bought two, kept the better looking one.

Before:


After a little love (alumiweld,drill,sand,polish). Don't want it too perfect, just un-junk.:

Finally got around to final shaping the lower tree. I cut off the steering lock tab and shaped/polished it a little. Came out ok. Now to finish polishing it and shorten the front forks then the front end will be done.

Waiting for the frame to get powder, killed a little time making these for my outer bearing support.. Not too shabby for a hacksaw/file/hand drill job.

Welding done on tanks, now for the filler. Oil tank got a bung for a bracket on the bottom, bungs for external site gauge, and the drain moved to the bottom (old drain hole filled).
Gas tank got four bungs for the rubber mounts on the frame, small mount for the kill switch, tail end capped, and a crack welded shut.
Hopefully, they will be a little prettier after paint...
