looks good man! when i was doin my swap i had orginally made a shock mount like yours with a bracket off to the left of the ears of the shock bushings. but after talking to john from composimo he was telling me that having a bracket like this can "snap" off those shock mount ears because insead of your weight being pushed straight down onto the bushing/ears like they are designed for, it is pulling the ears to the left and putting stress on that aluminum that it isnt designed for.
Thanks! I was thinking the same so I revised the shock mount (ties into both ears):
Got my bracket TIG welded:
Put on a kick stand (to be blasted, smoothed, and painted):
Been working on wiring and mounted my carb:
Ended up pulling the stock harness out and am building one from scratch. Back half is all wired minus the tail light. Headlights are running on AC power. Main power fuse and relays are done, just a matter of wiring up the lights and horn. Also need to customize my exhaust to fit, and buy a fuel pump.
Thanks for the kind words!
