Thanks S.G. - made some more progress on the oil tank today. Internal windage box and lines all set, just need to weld everything up.





Also figured out how I want to mount the tank up. Basically there will be 4 tabs on the frame downtube under the seat which I'm making to this spec:



And then there will be 4 threaded bungs welded to the side of the tank which line up with the tab holes - in between the two I have some bonded rubber bushings with 1/4" thread on each end to mate the bungs on the oil tank to the brackets...



Oh and my internal spring kickstand also came in. Nice clean look.

I did finish up the welding/brazing on the oil tank and pressure tested it successfully. I still need to weld on the bungs, hit it with some sanding sealer, and take some pics. Not much progress the last week or so due to a combination of incredibly nice weather and a new addition to the family...

I will finish! I'm just trying to get in every bit of riding before the snow hits. Once that happens, I'll be working on the bonnie in the basement all winter.

Here's the current state of the luxe which has seen quite a few mods since I got her...

I'm almost done moving everything down into my basement for the winter. Had to demo some existing stuff, build some new workbenches, put in some pegboard and lights, get the lift table and bike down there, bring all the tools down, etc. Should have a new update next week!

New shop name is Boiler Room Basement Customs.
