Well, the weather's been shit (working under a tin roof outside), but I did make some progress on my customized 2.2 gal. Mustang tank a few weeks ago.

Made a small dash out of some 18 gauge for the speedo I frenched into the tank (wiring runs inside the tank):



Did some more metal finishing on the lead work on my extended tunnel and welded some nuts inside to mount the coil:


Finished the lead on the recessed front mount:


Rear mount to peak transition:

I put this in my build thread but what the hell its pretty cool, made with me own two hands for the cost of free scrap from work.

Home made oil filter adapter, using the same oil filter as my Buell.

Got the starter for the sidecar done. It works fantastic. Cranks the engine no problem.

I was so happy with the starter I made a dolly to wheel it around El Mirage.
