hah! yeah i got alot of projects goin at all times. i'll put a light on it somewhwere. most of the fairing is gonna get cut up with openings for airflow. i just try n keep it rigid as long as i can, make mounts and stuff. cuz as soon as you start cutting openings into it, it starts changing shape in a big hurry!

I dig all the fab work. Where are you going to hide the oil tank? Someplace up in the fairing?

Enjoying the build, its good to see all you work in one place, really helps see the bikes as a linear progression of style and craftsmanship, great website.

im not sure on the wheels. im building this bike with my buddy youngo, i do all the fab, then he does all the paint n stuff. id like to do some nice aluminum rims and stainless spokes, but he n i are both such cheap basterds we'll just end up arguing all day about who shud have to pay for em, and ultimatly we'll just end up painting n polishing the stock stuff. seems like almost the only thing i buy on bike builds anymore is refills on my argon bottles for my welder!
