Looks very good so far, Glad to see the frame getting completed. The tank looks a little large but the black color is helping to make it look smaller. Maybe with the engine in it there will less emphesis on the tank. The rear fender will help to keep some attention off of the tank too.
I can see you have been using a grinder on the frame. Sometimes a 80-100 grit blue zirconium flap wheel will do a smoother job and keep those grinder marks from having to be smoothed out later. And those grinder marks are stress raisers. Lookin good though.

Thanks Donald,,,glad ya like it,,,,a blue Zirconium flap wheel huh? Does that go on my grinder I take it? Ill have to look into that. The tank is stock,,and I kinda like the look of the fat tank. I think when I get everything else done it will fit right in!

Yes, the flapwheel will go right on your small hand grinder. Sometimes you have to flip the nut upside down because the flapwheel is not as thick as the grinding wheel.
True Value hardware carries those sometimes.
The blue zirconium lasts much longer than the red oxide wheels.

You need to let forum members know the size of the rear wheel.
Diameter and width. and maximum width of the fender.
Otherwise someone could have a fender to give you or sell to you at a good price or shipping charges but do not know if you can use it.
You have to make it easy to help you. Go for it.

Good call. My Tire is a 130-90-16. Does that tell you what you need to know? Maximum width is 6 1/2". Kinda wanted a full fender,,,like a tail dragger. But am open minded and poor.
