    From looking at the bike overall I think I might have to drop the headlight a bit.

    Did you weld threaded bungs into your frame for the fender mount and seat spring bolts?

     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.

    As above,
    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.

    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
