Layed up some cardboard templates to get a visual on what I had in mind for a seat and tail. I am going to build this all out of sheetmetal. Where the tape is under the seat area will all be closed in to house all the electronics.Besides this, all I got done tonight was sitting and looking at what I have figureing out all the details on brakes, pedals, mounts for all the little stuff. I need to get some 12 3/4 inch shocks also to raise it up a bit for more tire clearance. Hopefully I will start making actual progress before long.
Well I have taken a different path on my sr500. I had started to build it up on the drop seat rigid frame I got from Shea, but after this summer of riding, I decided I am not really into the rigid stuff any more. Still like to look at them, but riding,,, not so much. So I picked up an xt500 frame to build into a street tracker. Will try to have ready for World Of Wheels.
Mounted the footpegs, cut down center stand and made stops for the kickstand, and centerstand. Will be finishing the fabwork soon, and Vern will start putting his building and detailing skills to work. Can't wait to see this one done. Will get better photos this weekend.
Almost finished, just waiting on fairing from paint shop. Much thanks to Chuck, Joe, and Vern for all the help. The paint was done by Los at Los's Garage, abd the lettering by Bob Bonds. The paint job is impeccable.
Check out the fab work on this CB750. Done by Slim at SlimsFab in Redlands Cali. Check out his blog
at slimfabblogspot.com. I learn so much about fabwork by just looking at his stuff, a great artist and creator.
The progress on my GL1000 project slowly moves along. Got the front and rear signals, taillights, and fenders cut up and mounted. Got the rotors drilled, and the wheels and brakes all put together. Got the bars drilled and all the wires run inside bars and hand controls all mounted up. A little bit of wireing, paint touch up on the frame, and mounting of the tins and this bike will be done.
