got my front signals (VERY BRIGHT!) headlights and rear "spring"


I payed 14.99 for a 1000lbs spring to fit my mtb shock and I received a $380 ISHOCK full adjustable coilover shock lol. Contacted seller he said he drop shipped the spring and he doesn't want to deal with it so looks like I get to build a new center shock. I guess its kool, but now I have to repaint the rear frame once I weld on my shock mount. I was looking forward to just slapping some stuff on it and being done, but this will work out for the best in the long run.

I got this in a teal color with white spring

finally got some work done on it, nothing is easy on this thing to get the forks on I have to lower the cup on the frame for the top bearing for the steering. I'm gonna need to get a new brake line made up for the front, the old one has a weird block on it that hits the plastics. I lowered the forks as much as physically possible and installed the bup stop springs in the bottom for a small dampening effect, but its basically solid up front. I have no issue with that though its been solid up front for a year before that never had any issues. The shock is too soft with my center shock setup I need to remake the bar with less of a lever effect to stiffen it up. I installed the turn signals and headlight as well as put all my controls on the bars except for my rear brake lever because I haven't gotten it from shipping yet. BUUUUTTTT yada yada yada you guys want pics so here yuh go!

So haven't gotten much done the past few days. I've been waiting on my girlfriends head to come back from the machine shop and rebuilding her honda for a bit. I've started hacking up the harness to get rid of all the wires that did the gauges and such then gonna start the actual tuck. I have my buddy at a local performance shop building my fuel tank that will fit in the front plastics since my center shock took up all the space under the seat. I'll have picture updates this week .

My computer crashed on mobile now so I haven't had a chance to post. Wiring is 90% done all that's left is the rear turn signals. I have someone plasma cutting some brackets for a new center shock setup since my current one is too soft as well as bending a new rear part of the frame to wrap around my seat and some pieces for my fuel tank then she's ready to roll.ill post pics and video ASAP my new roommate is gonna let me use his laptop
