Cleaned off unecessary coil mounts and regulator mounts from frame to clean it all up and welded in a new lower oil tank mount.

Made new front seat mount.The tank mounts have bungs welded in the frame 3/4" deep and threaded. This is one of the points that many miss and because the frame is thin it does not leave much thread when it is tapped out. Over a period of time the tank will loosen and work on these threads. Next thing you know they will not keep the tank on tight. By drilling holes and inserting in these bugs this problem is eliminated.

Working on the rear fender now and then to paint! Fabricating the lower, middle and sissy bar mounts.I decided to actually weld stand offs on the fender so that when it is finally assembled the sissy bar mounts have a solid surface to bolt to and will eliminate it working on the painted flat surface of the fender. It is also braced inside the fender from side to side for extra strength in this area.

Cutting out the fender to give it a better shape and to expose more of the huge whitewall tire.

Then start adding some round bar to give it defined edges and smooth it up all around.

She is now on her way to Zeke for paint!! Can't wait to see it when it comes back!!
