The sissy bar was from J&P Cycles it was origanialy for the softtail clip on mounts.
Finished of my head light mount.
Christmas holidays are paying off getting a heap done reworked the sissy bar and the fender mount under the seat
From looking at the bike overall I think I might have to drop the headlight a bit.
For long term durability I'd highly recommend you do so before you paint or powdercoat your frame, likewise for your fuel tank mounts. I can't see what you've done for the rear mount, but that front mount definitely needs a crush tube welded through the frame. Threaded holes in frames don't provide a lot of thread for bolts to hold on too so are more prone to coming lose or stripping threads given the massive vibration that goes through them, and holes in frames also create weak spots where cracks can eventually appear.
Do it right and you'll only need to do it once and it will last the life of the bike.
Its easy to make the bungs and just weld them in, dont forget the bike will vibrate quite a bit beong a hardtail so the more thread you have the better.
Nice bike, I agree, I would drop the headlight quite a bit
It's been a while since my last post since then i've change my tank to the smaller sporty tank so I could move my seat up the back bone abit to get a bit more travel out of the springs. I've run all my braided oil lines changed my rear fender over to a lowbrow one. Moddifeid the oil tank so that the battery box stits lower to alow room for my air bags for my seat. and sculpted a peice for my rear tail lights to sit mount on. I now am quiet happy with the height of the head light now I've put the taller tank on the whole bike feels more flowy now.
That going to be a great looking bike once it's painted ..Zodiac have just released a 3.3 gallon EFI Sposter Tank with Indented sides $330.00
Did this bike ever get finnished???
The last update I got on it was it was on it's way for it's first engineer inspection
Looking good !!!
II haven't finished it yet but heres some of the latest photo's because I'm painting it myself it's taking probably three times longer than it should.
I also had a crack at making an exhaust i've just got to figure out how to baffle it.
I kind of decided I couldn't be bothered enginering it because club plates are so easy to get in vic and it's only costing me $140.00 a year as apose to $700 for full reg
