I especially like the style of the seat and the flow of the lines from the front of the tank all the way back to the fender, it sure makes it stand out against the "common" Triumph style.

Tank officially ready for chrome. Sides were polished only as the top will be painted.



Frame out for powder.

My painter mentioned about blasting the areas that are being painted and using a self/etching primer

Started wiring. Plan to route all wires through the backbone and all electrics at the bottom of the motor. I purchased one of Classic Cycles Inc's "no battery" kits. Tony has been a tremendous help answering my questions on the wiring.





Put the motor back in and mocked up the pipes. It's just a waiting game for parts to come back from Chrome/Paint and & upholstery.

Got this sneak peak of my tank. Looks like grey from some this angle told but it's really light blue. Still needs pin striping etc but I'm liking the progress.
