finally got around to making a seat lanyard, ended up that when the seat is hanging it makes a good place to lay your tools while working with battery or making connections. also made these bungee spools for about 10 bucks. Auto part Engine Fuel line Vehicle Wire

I made a bib for the tank . I seen them on other bikes and just wanted something to protect the tank from my belt and some accent to match the seat cover I put on . It's growing on me just Eh I think . What do you all say . Easy enough to take off .

Added my amber to the low beam on the bike . I was too lazy to get up the first time to grab another relay out of the toolbox so I just had high beam with the white light 馃槄

I put on one of two Chieftain floorboards today on my Scout. I was having a hard time grasping one of the thing I had to do to the brake side so I took a break but I'm happy so far.锟



































Very nice . I couldn't figure out how they would work on the bobber because they use 2 pin points so I made my own 锟硷考

I gutted the foam out of my seat and cut out the dimple riser in the plastic where my tailbone would sit into . Dont recommend doing this but i am getting it redone and wanted to see how it felt . You actualy sit inside the bike now without all that foam pushing you over the bars if you are over 6ft tall . Might leave it since i have new softer shocks since the leather doesnt land on the hard plastic . Like sitting on a hamock for your butt

What are shop supplie? They bought an Indian shirt on your dime?
Went to fill the tank today and only filled 1 gallon. Got home and heard sloshing in the tank . So I filled the tank another half gallon when it was upright sitting on the bike . Never knew if it sits on the stand it didn't fill the tank completely. Learn something new eeveryday
You all might not like this and I didn't like any made out there . Past 3 days making parts . Now I need a few more washers and 2 more decorative nuts . I changed the design about 3 times until I got it the way I think the lines on the bobber looked . Round curves like the fender .



Black paint is next.
