Haven't been able to get on it like I hoped. I finally got my brothers bobber off my lift and rolled the Behemoth up there. I decided to strip the bike down further. I pulled the harness and all the electrical components. I also got the Carbs pulled. I pulled one of the bowls to see how they looked inside. Not too bad, I may be able to get away with a thorough cleaning and replace the needles and bowl gaskets.
I'm hoping soon to be able to order the materials to make the new triple trees, so that I can properly fit the ZX7r front forks. As well as getting the bearings and material to fit the wing front wheel to the zx7r forks and zx7r rotors to the wing wheel.
In the meantime I will probably spend time simplifying the harness and getting the frame modifications sorted out.

Made some more progress on the disassembly today. I took out the access panel on my welder when the chassis decided to fall off my lift, awesome way to start my morning. But it's down to the frame now. Found some rot through in the removable frame section, so I'll be hunting down one of those(anyone holding?). Also some starting on the other side so I'm in for some patch work.
I love how big this engine looks out of the frame.
I'm going to work on getting my sand blaster plumbed up and build a small temporary paint booth.

Over the weekend I finally got the chance to work on the Behemoth again. I got the Gl1000 shelter I wanted as well, thanks to another forum member. Did some modifications to the frame, although I didn't get to finish up, but I'll show y'all what I did get done. Scored an old pipe bender from my neighbor, but I need to find the right mandrels so I can finish the frame work.
