Had planned on getting both wheels and the driveline on today, but an unexpected visit from my son negated that. Good visit, and at least I got the front end lined up so that it will stand on the center stand to make reassembled driveline/swingarm installation the next step. Bonus is my Murray's carbs and exhaust are in the mail!!

Ok, made progress this last week. Got my Murray's carbs and goodies! Starting to take on the form of a motorcycle. Bars are just some spares for effect, will like go with a drag bar like on many of my other builds. My nephew is working on the tank and it should be in hand soon.

Thanks. going with the upswept pipes and muffs are still aways off, but I have seen some Fea Bay CF or SS 3.5" OD shorties with tips that look pretty good. I have a good welder handy and I may make a crossover tube toward the rear to help balance them. I also not ruled out DanMoto or just making my own out of some thin wall SS or Ti we have laying around where I work. Stuffed with SS mesh and a perforated core tube I have done about 8 mufflers for various bikes over the years.

Will have to see how it sits with bars/seat combo to decide on peg position. I am just making this up as I go along.

Thanks Bahn, yeah, I am a bit of a neat freak, but not as OCD as I used to be! That was exhausting...
