You are doing a beautiful job, such attention to detail! Love the look of that 4 into 1 gauge. I really like to see the progress you are making.

I used a large oil pressure sensor that prevented the standard oil separator from being used so I had to find an alternative. Some of you may want to try this alternative at some point so I decide to take a picture of how I mounted it. It is a very small separator that cost less than $10.00 but it is a very tight fit where I had to put it. Just had to make a simple bracket for it.
I also got the front forks rebuilt. Mounted the handlebars and gauges too.
