      Back is feeling a bit better, got on the floor and did some fitting for the fender. Going to bring the fender to work tomorrow now that all 6 bungs are at least fit on so I can have a friend (Who actually knows how to weld) tig weld them. Also got the front seat bracket bung in place. Going to stop at the local tailor/upholstery guy tomorrow with the seat to see what they can do for me. If they can get it covered in a week or two I will most likely let them tackle it.

        Thanks Mort,

        New List:
        Finish lower fender bracket
        Finish Intake Mount
        Remove old kick stand and weld on new slimmer style.
        Make Sissy Bar
        Mount Tail light and rear directionals to sissy bar?
        Fit old metal seat to new mounts (While I wait for the new one to be upholstered)
        Go fuckinnnn riidddeeeeee.

              You are making some crazy progress, do you have a day job? Looks good for sure. Love the look of the exhaust. What is that knob on the exhaust, some kind of adjustable baffle? Is the outlet close to your leg at all? Keep the pics coming.

                Lol it's been a tiring process. I work 600-230 Monday through Friday as an Engineering Manager. Get to spend some time with my 1 year old and 3 year old until around 730 and then if the wife wants some alone time (Usually needed after a day with the kids lol) I get to go in the garage until 1130ish. Sometimes longer but I usually regret that pretty quickly in the morning.

                The baffles on the exhaust are called snuff-or-nots. Popular in the vintage Honda scene. I had to make larger baffles for this pipe size but they work just the same. Once I get the bike started up ill have to take a video showing the difference in sound. My leg clears the exhaust pretty good although i did just put turn outs on them so I might feel a bit more heat than usual. I will try to get a picture of me or the wife on the bike as an example.

                  Snuff-or-Not, gotcha. Almost like cutout exhaust on cars (not quite the same), change the tone/level with the twist of the lever. Looks very old school from the looks of that original ad, $1.95

                  I like that technique where you saw part way through the bar stock, bend to the desired angle and then weld up the gap! Nice

                Adapted old seat to new mounts temporarily.
                Removed kickstand and cleaned up area
                Pictures of foot and exhaust placement for reference.

                    Thanks Duke!

                    Had a friend at work tig weld the intake mount.
                    Got the new kick stand welded on
                    Made up a sissy bar, not sure how much I like it but needed something to mount my tail light and turns to (Not done yet)
                    Attached my plate to the saddle bag.

                    Really at this point I just need to rig up the rear lights and I should be good to go.

                      I've been thoroughly enjoying this build thread Bnag0. Your bike looks like something straight out of The Road Warrior.

                        Thanks Ironman lol. I don't know if ill ever be able to paint it.... I just like the ratty look too much. Maybe down the road if I can score another Roadstar Ill build a second pretty bike. It just seems like I am always wanting to change this one so if i ever did paint it, it would have to be weld through primer lol

                          We need good straight on left and right profile photos of the entire bike. All the little bits and pieces look great but I don't think I've seen a side profile photo in a long time.

                            Walk around/start up video is loading.

                            A few last things to button her up...

                            Still need a resistor for the blinkers.

                            Once i get her outside I will have the wife do a little photo shoot to get some updated shots.

                              No doubt folks will weigh in to tell you that your idle is set way too low, but it sure sounds cool!
