Got my headlight and speedo mount set up. It's nothing elegant but it's solid and it'll do the work.

I change my own tires because I don't trust a lot of local shops and because I'm cheap...it's an adventure sometimes...

So I got new fork seals...then I forgot to put oil in one...then I forgot to put the damper rod in it...then I forgot to bleed the other one...then I finally got them all together and mounted. Then I installed my new tires! Then I got my wheels mounted. Then I decided that I actually was not willing to give up on the high mount left exit exhaust and redid that. Then I realized another thing I forgot...bonus points if you can spot it haha

Bringing them both inboard and the top silencer ahead of the bottom makes all the difference, looks good to me

Tail light?
Black painted rear rim? (is it smaller?)

I actually have a tail light on it now...and got the rear painted pretty nicely. I forgot the rotors on the front

Final iteration of the exhaust. The welds aren't pretty but it's the best my Harbor Freight welder can do lol. I'm glad I didn't bail on it, I really like the way it came out. I need to polish and scrape and sand a bit, but not much.

I have done pretty poorly at keeping these threads updated...but I've got 99% of the paint done and started reassembly.

Not much of an update but all the same...getting wiring down, trimming what doesn't need to be there, adding what needs to be there, wiring up and testing an improvised coil on plug setup that seems to be working great

Nearly every time I post a picture of this build someone somewhere asks me about what coils I'm using...

Finally out under her own power. Still has a punchlist but a lot of it may wait until winter. I've got another one I want to build and I'd like to get some time to just ride this one...
