    Option 2 will definitely take me a lot of extra time as each image will have to be entered individually. Unless there is an easier way to add a group of images? Option 1 is just as fast but kind of stinks not to see the image.

      Waiting on some more hardware/bungs for the seat and fender install so I decided to make a new intake "housing" as the one I had was pretty half ass thrown together a few years back. Didn't get her complete but I think you guys can see what im going for in the last picture.

            Did you have trouble getting the SS bolts into the bungs you welded in? Did they get stuck on the way out? I'm curious of the failure type. I'm not a big fan of SS hardware for that reason, most of it is pretty soft and breaks easily (IME).

              I usually try to test with steel first. If that doesn't go well I chase the threads and depending on how lucky ive been also use neversieze lol

                  Yeah a tig would be cool. Saw a guy use one many years ago. He was showing off his new welder and what he could do with it. Looked a bit slower than mig but the results were beautiful.

                I wasn't going to say anything but since you brought it up... I love TIG and it would be especially well suited to what you are doing, you're working way too hard! LOL

                  I know man! I am pretty new to sticking metal together but I've worked as a processing engineer at a metal fabrication shop for the past 12 years so I do have some experience in fabrication. My wife bought me this Hobart 140 a few years back to get me started and I'm glad she did. I would rather leave some decent looking tig welds on my parts and not touch the grinder! That is when and if my tig welds ever look presentable lol.

                      Added some rear gussets to the seat pan. Will be drilling (4) holes and welding in bolts that will pass through to the bottom. The (2) in the rear will pass through some brackets I weld onto the frame. The front (2) will bolt to a piece of flat bar that will then bolt to the frame. The idea is to give my seat a little bit of adjustment front to rear. Hoping I can start speeding up the process so I can ride this damn thing this season.

                              Got the front seat bracket bung tapped. Decided to paly around with the yoga mat foam and the high density foam from Joanne Fabrics. The Yoga mat is roughly .50" thick but a little too firm. The green HD foam is too soft and at 2" thick its hard to work with. I think my plan is to go 3 layers of yoga mat and then try out some gel seat pad material i just ordered from Amazon...

                                Got the exhaust modified with some turn out tips.

                                    Sorry for the lag in updates, I threw my back out moving the kids bean bag in the living room lol.

                                    Been taking it easy but I have a little progress on the seat. This is officially the first part on the bike that I have painted lol.

                                        Cool. I never thought of using lemon Jell-O as a seat cushion.
