With the lights.
-The fender is a "Twisted Choppers" 7 x 16 that I sectioned to fit the 150/90 15 Avon Venom Tire.

The electrics tray, radiator catch tank, and the upper front engine mount and partial shield (to keep the heat from the carter fuel pump which will sit directly behind it.)

Tacked up the exhaust...

Modified the air scoops from an 1100, moved the 1200 tank forward to make room for the
Mustang early sportster seat. Had to cut back on the turning radius of the forks.
Still have to open up the rear of the "tank" so the seat fits inside...

Man, this is looking like a quick build with good quality! Keep it moving! Are you moving the air filter for the carbs to the outside of the frame??

When I first saw your rear fender welded before the primer, I thought it wasn't going to look good at all, but then the photo with it all primed changed my opinion completely. Very nice.

And Welcome to the Forum!

I did the rear fender like that so there wasn't so much space between fender and bags.
Progress as of today, getting ready for paint.

Waiting on paint for the tins, frame and the engine.
Working on some of the electrics. I use Motogadget's M-Units for all my bikes,
and that makes it simple... But I can't leave anything alone so getting carried away with electrics...
