Well as stated in the fucking fuckity fuck thread, i'm finishing her up. at least to road worthy status before winter. needs petcock, new coils and the fwd controls finished. so HOPEFULLY by this coming weekend she'll be on the road.



got the ignition switch, kill switch, and high beam switch hidden in the gusset



skinny 18 inch rear tire anyone??




please remember that this is my first bike.

thanks.

What's to hate? I like it! The 18 is nifty. I think I'm a sucker for anything with tall, skinny wheels.

yeah sorry didn't get a pic of the other side. so kill switch is on one side, ign. in the middle, and dimmer on the other side.

To hell with the haters, I like it. You definitely made the most of what you had to work with, which is cool in my book. I really dig the copper leaf and ivory lettering on the bare metal tank, that came out great.

Nothing to hate-on there. That is a really nice lookin' ride you've got there. Hell of a nice lookin' piece, especially for under three grand.

SWEET! Looks good Sparky!! We will have to do a dual shakedown run together and see whose bike falls apart first;) . BTW I might need you to do a little work on my paint again as I apparently wasnt as careful as I thought..put a few "oops" in it ya see..
