Well damn. That headlight looks good!
And here I thought you guys would flame me for adding useless plastic!

So who knows where I can get a listing of cable with the lengths and ends. In my infinite wisdom I bought a stock clutch cable and it's too short:doh:
The great bike shops we have around here think I'm an idiot for wanting an extended length cable. All they know how to do is put the year and make of the bike in the puter. I am thinking there must be a catalogue somewhere that has the lengths listed

Tank looks niiiiicey nice. Just out of curiousity, that hi-temp paint isn't the kind that requires baking to reach its full hardness/durability is it? Just asking cuz I have had some less than positive experiences with using it and then getting one solitary drop of gasoline on it when it wasn't baked... would hate for you to find out at the gas pump on your first post-build ride.

I was hoping you were wrong but...:doh:

I don't think the bondo will last if I put it in the oven to bake! The can says 200 deg for 1 hour to fully cure. I guess i will have to be careful pouring the gas in! Thanks for the heads up!

That tank color is rad!
I never thought it would turn out as good as it did, I like it too! It probably won't last long though

According to the spec Bondo should be able to withstand 180F sustained... I bet you could get away with it. I guess fumes in the tank etc could also be a concern.

tank has been dry for a while, so most of the fumes would be from the paint curing. I'm just guessing my wife might get a little upset if I pop it in the oven to try :D
