        Gee whizz trout...
        ..I guess I shouldn't expect any less...
        That is one sweet lookin' ride..!!!!

        One thing that stood out was that there doesn't seem to be room on that seat for a passenger..?!?

        Otherwise, I think the word, 'Exceptional', says it best the way I see it..

          since Bob has an interest in making this motorcycle, I'll need to make a list on what didn't work and things that needed reworked...

          inlay, there's a inlay strip that goes on the tank but I'm going to skip that and there is a seat for a passenger...

          thanks for following my WIP...

            Well its about time your back, these vacations are interrupting my WIP watching.....just so ya know.
            Everything looks spectacular.....except that mark on the seat. What is it, a smudge, part of the wood? I don't like that.....just in case you wondered what my opinion was....

              Looking forward to see those ape hangers? Or are you going with more conventional handle bars? Nicely done so far.

                I had to take off the rear tire so I could clear coat it and some other areas that I wouldn't be able to get to with the tire and fender on...
                yes it has a chain but you can hardly see it when everything is together..

                some of the things that I had to over come...
                as for the rims, the directions said to cut the rims in 2 half's of 3/8 inch stock.
                take the 3/8 stock and drill a 1 3/4 hole 1/8 inch deep on both sides and then cut out the spokes?? then glue together making sure to stagger the spokes..
                what I did was to cut a 3/4 inch inter rim ring and then cut out the center part of the spokes and then glue them to the rim.
                I guest if I had a 1 3/4 inch forstner bit would of been the way to go but I didn't have one and I think the spokes would of been a pain to cut..my way worked just fine!

                hey wood dog, I cut that seat just as I took my first break from the project and I'm not really happy with it so I'll be making another one. I think you talking about the 1/4 inch hole at the back of the seat? the original picture of the bike shows a sissy bar that's held on there but they didn't give instructions on how to make that one, the sissy bar that is on my plans is glued onto the back of the seat..
                there is also a decorative rosette that's glued on the 1/4 inch dowel that sticks out of those holes..

                like your really going to understand what I'm tring to tell you..lol

                          Maybe you could print one out. Go to Google Image and type in speedometer there's a whole bunch.

                              I started the tail pipes 6 days ago and after the 3rd day I was about ready to give up. the directions SUCKED and it wasn't even close!
                              I looked at a lot of pictures to help me figure it out but I couldn't find any bikes with old school pipes so this is the best I could do!

                              being home sick today I got a lot of work done, not only did I get the pipes done I almost have the front fender finished....
