For now, I am just trying to get her running. As most builders know, it is a never ending project and always making changes. I will have bags done at a later time. Right now, the excitement is driving me to just get her running. LOL

Forward controls, oil filter mount both came in today. I thought I had the right bolts ordered on ebay. They were the tapered heads. I need the flush heads/non tapered. Cannot find them on Ebay. Oh the guess work is getting fun now. Also just found I need mount bolts for the starter. They thread into the primary housing. Guess I should just go down to the local hardware supply and match them up.

Down to wiring and a few small things. But she is coming together.

So was installing my rear brake caliper (DNA) and am finding it will not fit over the rotor as the pads are not far enough apart. I have opened the bleed port on the caliper to try to open the pads all the way but it appears that it is not going to help. This problem does not happen to the front caliper/rotor as the rotor is thinner. So the question is Do I get another rotor (thinner), grind the current rotor down, or am I just missing out on something?

check the thickness of the pads. the ultima calipers I used recall they used pads that were offered in slightly different thickness.

Whoo hooo, I am back in the forum again. Update: The bike is nearly completed. I am at the breakdown phase and will be painting the frame soon. Waiting for the holidays to pass.

Mocked up

Here she is in mock up mode. I have a few things left to do but this about sums the hunt and gather portion of the build. Next few weeks I will take her all apart and prep for paint. Some changes have been made in the build, I have to say it is not what I was expecting but I still love it.

So now finally for an update. I have broken her down and sent the frame off to powder coat. Should have it back any day now. Going satin black for the frame. As for the tins, well they will remain primered for now. Still need a few small parts (ie Cables, brake lines, and maybe a set of turn signals) but I think the final phase is in gear now. Pics soon.

Rear brake question: How do I go about setting up the rear brake tubing? Ebay has several tubes but non have a length or angle I need. Should I just make one? What did you guys do? (Talking about the solid line from manifold to the switch)
