there wasnt enough room for the bars, the forks stuck out too far.
Instead of building some riser blocks, i robbed the risers off my RMZ

Got the majority of the frame polished, all the visible parts are polished. (accept the swing arm, not sure if im putting a different one on yet or not)
I am SICK of sanding... i literaly sanded until my fingers bled. Blood stains on my pants. and on the sand paper. Gloves would have been a smart choice.

I got some indicator lights comming that will be fitted between the speedo/tach, it should look pretty sharp after some more sanding and polishing.
Not looking forward to the sandpaper again

i lost my brand new digital fucking camera the other day. so all progress pics are gone. fuck.
I got the dirty bars mounted, got the rear rim sand blasted, and i think im getting close to figuring out how to make the rear shock linkage mount up.
also got some mounts made for the gauge cluster i made.
got the rear tail light wired in.
the new radiator came in, but i think its a little small, so now i gotta find or make an oil temp gauge.

Traded all my old parts (swing arm, rear shock/linkage, forks/triple clamps) to a buddie that does alot of autobody work. So he said hes gonna paint everything on my bike for free
and i started sanding the swing arm to get it ready for the polish.
