Despite tornadoes in my backyard, snow, death, divorce, joblessness, school jiggery pokery and my family getting completely sick of dealing with me over this bastard, I'm almost done...wiring, chain, carb, and the finer details is all that's left, before I can take it around the block and watch half the pieces fall back off and my zip ties bust apart:

Yupper, I want to do custom pipes when money becomes available. There's a couple of "sore thumbs" that I'll take care of.

Bike looks good ! I would be careful in the right hand turn's with that generator case exhaust pipe on the front might be a little low. Hate to see you get into trouble on a tight turn. Just my opinion but hey, skin is'nt cheap.

I wimped out and ran rubber lines for now. At least I can get around without spewing oil...now there's HUGE difference in power-weight ratio as compared to before...and you could tell the engine was wore slap ass out before. I think this one's a keeper.

Just after this, I wired in the lights and the whatnot.

Still a lot of little things to do, but it's back to being a vehicle, instead of a fashion accessory/ conversation piece /soul-crushing curse:

Tie wrap king, you've got that shit right..thanks, guys.
lewey, those buckhorns are (I think) stock '75 FXE bars. I'm still bouncing between accessories to make sure my ass doesn't look big..

And for you, Kevin:
