Thanks, Dan.
Look forward to seeing your truck with the logos on it. I am working really hard to get this bike done and it's starting to grow on me. I think it will start to take shape once I get the fender and tank mounted. The CF tank looks great from seeing them on your bikes but I still kinda like the Triumph 500 tanks as well, I just don't like doing all the body work on them to get them straight. That is why I thought to go with a new tank with no rust and dents, I figure that will save me a day or two of labor. We shall see hopefully soon!

There is no store bought seat for this scoot. Got the seat pan back from pc and I covered it with leather and did a little tooling on it and gave this bike the name "T-Bone Capone". Wheels are getting pc this week so I should get them on next week. Still can't find a CF tank, maybe I will just use a water bottle.

They came out really good. I was thinking of using Metzelers but I am glad I went with the Avons. I think I am gonna do a bit more tooling on the seat. We will see. Thanks, Buddy.

Thanks, Dan. Truck came out killer. You did a good job lining up the decals on the door. The big ones can get tricking sometimes. Great Job!

Well Buddy, that's why they call it opinions because its like assholes, everybody's got one. I make my pipes from scratch and since it is my bike and I like it that's what matters to me. If I had to put the stock bullshit pipes that 99% of the guys put on, I would say f**k it and build mopeds. But anyways that's just my opinion and I like 80's glam rock. Beats the alternative now a days!

Thanks. I have a ton of hours since I started this build in October. It takes a lot more time and effort than most people will ever know. Keep working and don't take your eye off the end goal. Good luck.

Nice Mike.....straight exhaust and assholes in the same sentence just put a visual in my head that I wish I never had! Music aside if you look at the effort and time put into hair make up and clothes from the 80's glam rockers you could twist it into a complement. I think it is simple and looks great and I have a ton of respect for anyone who makes there own exhaust and has it turn out clean! It sounds easy until you start cutting pieces and and try to make them flow and go the direction you want.
There is a guy here with a yard full of old mopeds if you decide to go that rout here is some inspiration.

O.K just got conformation from a friend in B.C. straight pipes are cool! However if stated he has straight pipes eh they may have come from Canada and the coolness is questionable. If you don't believe me just say eeeh and let it draw out a bit. Your head will move from side to side proving that cool pipes from Canada must be curved!

Damn, I'm pretty cynical and witty and all, and even i don't get the Canada bit.

Maybe American straight pipes are on the side I put 'em on, and y'all have accidentially been using the Canadian version that exits on the right? I don't know.

Well I know this, they do have good bacon and I am a right side pipe guy.

Updates. The fender is done except for the fender struts, still deciding on how I am gonna make them. Oil tank is finished and mounted. I still need to lower the front end and the tank is just sitting on the frame so I have some fitting to do on it still.
