Made a little progress in the freezing arse cold

Homemade lowered seat! I used the ol, "cut and smash" method and it worked great! Now i need to invest in a nice vice and i can pump these out all day. And it actually came out better than one i paid for on the other ruckus! It needs to be sanded down all over and repainted but it needs to warm up a little first. But the welds are nice and strong on the rear. Much better than i was expecting. Edit: sorry the pics are so blurry, the camera hates low light, even with the flash.

I made sure to add just enough space to get the shock bolt out incase the need ever arises.

I think next im goingbto cut the whole up-swoop section of the seat frame and just add a rear cross brace in there somehere.

But seriously, a good vice would make this so much easier and cleaner.

And maybe a better level lol: a 2x4

At least it worked

So now that I just got the gas tank cover and the luggage pan, i've decided that the battery box needs to be a slightly darker red and the frame WILL be black. Now I just have to wait for it to get warm enough to paint. stupid midwest winter

Also got a blue fan scoop. Didnt really want blue but the price was right. Turns out,


5 minutes with a blue fan scoop

Beautiful chrome to match my chrome header!

As soon as i sprayed that stuff on the blue just dissolved off in seconds! Much easier than than painting, plus it will match much better!

Just finished up welding up the header pipe. This muffler is crazy long! And i kind of like it :mrgreen:

The old second shock mount worked perfect for the strap mount.

Ill get a better shot in the morning. I cant wait to fire it up and hear it!

Morning pic:

Here it is running with the new exhaust. it sounds ALOT better in person. nice and deep tone to it but not nearly as loud as i thought it would be. its actually at an acceptable level for a neighborhood :ucrazy:

Image


I actually had the ebrake on when i turned the throttle a little and it still wanted to just away from me. i can't wait to get a good gps reading on this thing!

and turns out i DO need a rear fender :cry:
