    I think if you had a little more room in that shop, you'd have her done by now.

    I was drooling over that space too. Nice shop. My shop is way too crowded.

    Yes, it pretty spacious for a bike shop. That's because it's the body shop/dealership I work @. The GM was nice enough to let me keep the bike there and let me work on it in my spare time. Otherwise my bikes are in my old rickidy shed during riding season and in my walk basement in the winter. I've ran out of space in the basement so i was glad i could keep the bike @ work!

    I'm going to date myself here but, in 1970, I bought a 650 Bonneville, that winter I took the whole bike apart and chopped it, I had parts all over the place, some in the garage some in the basement, and, some on the front porch, mom got a little pissed about that but my uncle who owned the house and lived up stairs was really cool about it. He used to be a Harley and Indian rider. Grandma GAVE his bikes away !, while he was in the hospital recovering from an accident on one of his bikes ! His reaction upon returning home from the hospital and finding his bikes gone was, "aww mom, did you have to give the Indian away too" one did not mess with Grandma !
    As I get older I find work space is very important, mostly because I can't find stuff.

    Is it just me, or are those some wiiiiide bars? If so, did you have to do custom cables/brake hose/etc?

    Things are moving along. Got all my tail pieces fit, primed, and painted. Hoping to have the tail all together by the end of the weekend... I guess I still need a taillight.
    If anyone wants what's left of the old rails let me know. They might work for mock up or maybe repair them or something custom? Anyone who wants them can have them for shipping. Pics of progress and broken rails:
