Well, I stopped by the "spa" yesterday, and work has started.

The part I was worried about most, was the crack in the side, due to
the professional frame shortening.

But, it looks like it is going to be OK.

I'm not sure that I'm doing the right thing. But I was not happy with the
carbs, against the tin, (look back) So I added more parts to my project.

OK, Got a few new Parts in, and also managed too do a little work.

New coach lights for the front, a little better shape than the old ones.

Got the windshield put together. Bugshields, could not make a 90 for
me on the top, so I had to use two bottom rails. But I think it will work fine. And MAN, I still love those mirrors.

And got around to do some polishing on the gas cap. Some more to do, but getting close.

I knew that the carbs were touching the OEM doghouse. But, must have been worse than I thought. I had to shorten the hex bar by 1/4 inch.

Live and Learn, I guess,
