Do you have any pictures of your build by any chance. I haven't decided how I want to do the rest and I'm open for more ideas. I'd love to see what you've made.

I would like to see it as well. I'm considering giving a project like this a go.

Haha. I know it's dirty. Since I'm still crawling in and out of the interior and making so much sawdust, I haven't bothered doing my yearly spring cleaning (inside and outside). The winters we get here in New York State are very hard on cars with all the salt and sand that's dumped on the roads. Just looking at the picture above, I see a bunch of new rust spots I didn't even know I had.

I finished the fairing yesterday and also cut my bars down again so they sit flush. It looks so much better now without the funny little ends sticking out. I don't know if the sticker is staying or not; I'm thinking about replacing it with an HN # sticker.



And a bunch more I took yesterday.

Looking good! I know what you mean about hard winters. I spend my winters in the upper peninsula of Michigan. We get about 200 inches of snow a year. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live down south and not have to worry at all about salt, rust, snow, and bad roads; but then I realize I would miss the snow.

^^ This, I couldn't live without snow. Hopefully next year we will get a winter worth having fun with. This year sucked with all the rain, slush, snow, rain slush; it never really froze all year which made spring cleanup hell.

Well, it certainly froze up here, but it was a much milder winter than usual.

yeah its kinda nice not having to shovel your walkway, de-ice your windows, etc... you only have to deal with the occasional hurricane, torrential downpours, and the oh so lovely Texas droughts (which turn into wild fires)
