    Ditch the stock gauges and get a bicycle computer, they are 10 bucks 99 percent accurate and go up to 99 mph. Super easy to install too, and nice and small so you can hide it. Also available wireless for 35 bucks

    Hmmm. There's a bike shop right across the street from my work. Maybe I'll walk over there and see what they have. I was planning on going over there to see if they have a bar end mirror that would work.

    It finally got on the road last night! It's still not running completely right, but we made some progress. Pics coming soon.

    Some updated pics. It's coming along. Just ordered a jet kit which should solve all the running issues...I hope.

    BTW that is not me in the pics. It's my bro in law.

    what are the chances of taking a small piece of lexan and cutting it to dimension, painting it black and covering that right side of your battery? Just a idea to help hide it a tad

    You have done well in this build bro!

    Working on that actually. I'm modifying the stock cover. It has this ugly bulge in it. So I cut that part of it out, cut some sheet metal, glued it in, and then bondo'd and marglassed over it. I just wanted it to be flat and smooth. I've been working on it for a bit (it's not that hard) because I have been so damn busy. It'll be flat black like the rest of the pieces.

    That battery is bothering everyone. lol.

    IT'S ALIVE.

    So after going over the cards 2-3 times just trying to clean them (compressed air, carb cleaner bath, etc), and the bike still not running, I finally had them ultra-sonic cleaned. I popped the carbs back in yesterday and the bike seriously just fired right up and ran like it was brand new. I couldn't believe it. After so much time being disappointed and all the work I put into it, if this didn't work I was seriously ready to sell it. I can't wait to finish up some little things on it now and get riding.
