More pics. I’m trying to balance out the colour schemes. Side covers are silver to match final drive. Front and rear fenders( front will be shortened considerably) will be matte black to match cylinder covers. False tank will be high gloss red to match frame. This seat was expensive but it comes down to the seat and false tank … these have to be perfect , since the eyes are drawn to the larger surface area . I will probably have the faux tank professionally painted. Will keep you updated :)
Thanks for all the compliments too :)

Well…… I dropped off the false tank and side covers( my paint job on side covers had too many blemishes) at local body shop. Estimate wasn’t too bad ! Hopefully will have it done in a few weeks.
Spague clutch is acting up. Will try seafoam trick and keep fingers crossed.

Bike runs amazing!! Took her out for a spin today! Looks funny as no false tank on her but weather was great and can’t wait on painted parts , nice 73 degrees today. Lots of looks. One guy even stopped his truck to get a better look. No issues with starter this time and this bike is fast!! No issues with single carb setup… all cylinders firing nicely!! Can’t wait to get my painted parts.
Still need to rebuild brake calipers and setup aftermarket speedo. Might have to keep this one 😀

Stick a fork in her…. She’s done!!! 5 month build … this is probably my 6th wing I’ve flipped. I’m very particular , making sure every nut and bolt is cleaned and everything works as it should!
Hope you like her :)
