Alright, all the plastics already on e-bay and I'm ready to get going. I just finished shortening the can, my lights have arrived (I'm trying a 100W aircraft landing light and the other a 55W, both 4"). I also picked up a couple ammo boxes from the local army surplus so I can fab a battery box and probably stuff some other wiring harnesses in there too. I've got lots of ideas, just have to do them. I'll keep posting pics.

Anyone else get gas in their mouth taking the tank off?

I've got some headlight brackets mocked up, need to use thicker material for the real thing though. I just used some P-clamps and left over ammo box metal. Battery box turned out nice but the lids going to be a bitch, lots of room in there to hide wiring and such. I'm pluggin' along and it may someday be rideable.......:letsride:

Awesome! Those P-clamps are elusive, I couldn't find them anywhere and wound up using conduit clamps instead. Looks good though!

Cool idea for the box, I should do the same, just to live up to my namesake :D

Thanks for the positive feedback fellas! 7.62 ,those P-clamps didn't elude me, we have a huge parts room at work and they don't mind if we yoink a few things (I could help out some local guys too if they need random shit). I'm spoiled.

I just saw the rest of your post. Yes you should do the ammo box. Its mega easy.....-make one out of cardboard, buy ammo box $15, trace..cut...fold..rivet(I can't weld). That metals easy to work with, it bends like juicy fruit. Don't be like me and get one that says "Blanks" on the fuckin' side though.:(

Ya, it's just the ammo box and I have a tab that keeps the battery from moving around. I've got lots of room to hide other shit too. So... ammo box, with a 2inch wide cut in the end towards the front of the bike that I can lay wiring through. I dunno, it works and the seat will hide imperfections.

Cool man, I hope you don't mind if I try something similar. I'll of course add my own unique touch :D

The Katana is my ugly ex-girlfriend now. I got a great deal on a '06 Z1000, so I'll be playing with that for a while. I've got the Kat ready for paint and my tiny little bike speedo came in. I'll post some pics later.

there sure seems to be a lot of fighters in red deer. we are all going to have to get together one day..
Fuckin rights!

Also, there's a guy in Red Deer named Marshall who has a small airbrush outfit called Air Art. I have his card somewhere. He was a good customer of mine at my old shot and had a PIMPED Vmax. Velocity stacks, et al. He told me to keep him posted on 'fighter events in the area.
