I started making the 3/4" struts for the rear by bending them on my harbor freight hydraulic bender. I ended up not being able to get enough curve in them, and found it impossible to get 2 exactly the same.



My pile of bad attempts...



Finally got a good one, but it's just not curved enough



Finally welded a brake rotor to the bench and heated the stock to get the shape I wanted.







Because of the large offset on the right I ended up with a funky looking, crooked strut on that side.



After staring at it for a few days I decided to remake it

Once I cut the fender short, it got really floppy so I needed to tie the external rear struts to the bungs at the bottom. I did this by making some internal reinforcements out of 12ga stock. Getting around the cutout for the chain was a bit of a pia but it worked out ok.







I want to mount an LED strip under the fender so I made this filler piece to mount it in, with the intention of drilling individual holes for each LED. I found it impossible to drill them on an arc without ending up with that crooked teeth look, so after like 5 attempts I had to start from scratch.



The solution came to me at 4am when I realized I could do a bolt circle and plug the coordinates into my digital readout on the mill. I'm really happy with the results.



You can see once of my failed attempts at the top







Once I tack welded it in there, the fender got rock solid. The bottom edge still needs some tweaking but I'm pretty happy with it.

So when I did the final welding on the rear fender I jigged it all up so it wouldn't warp but it did anyway. As I finished the last 10% it somehow warped back and fit perfectly. The space under the tire is just a hair under 1/2" at center, which was what I was shooting for.



I also finished up the welding on a bunch of other things that were taked in place.





Welded the modified oil tank back on. My legs still rest on it, I'll have to decide what to do when I first ride it. If it gets too hot I'll make some little heat guards for my legs to rest on. I've got it dropped as far as I can without interfering with the starter. All I can do now is tilt it forward to get it lower.



Next was to make some exhaust pipes. This was my frist time making a whole set from scratch. I bought a shitload of mandrel bent sections but only ended up using a single 180. I cut the headers off a set of trashed VH Big radius I had laying around, and made these bungs to step up from 1.75" to 2.5".



Yeah I know the pipes are gonna turn blue and no baffles so I know they will be sick loud, shoot fire, and kill my low end. I don't have shit for brakes on this thing anyway and I like fire coming out of my pipes.

I had a section of straight pipe roll bent into a 10' diameter for the long pipe, but the bend still wasn't enough. I ended up slotting the pipe and bending it tighter. I used this throughout to get the fit I wanted.

Before...

The rear pipe was a bitch to fish under there. I can no longer see my oil temp gauge and had to turn my oil pressure gauge but I got it through.





I did all the finish welding, then realized how hard it would be to grind down the welds on the inside of the tight bend. 3 nights of grinding and I got them all smooth, thanks to a great article in the Horse that came just in time! I used Silicon Bronze to fill any divits or low spots. Pipes are tied together with a single tube, cut in the center and bolted, then tied to the frame with a bracket. This allows me to adjust their position relative to each other, and remove them as one piece if I want.















Someone had asked for a picture of me on the bike for persepective. Here I am, handsome little devil. I'm 6'3" so yeah the bike is really long, close to 11' tip to tip.
