Here are a couple of pics of the initial mockup.
Anybody want to guess what the seat/tail hump is made out of?

As I am ready to start another project here in the shop,
today I rolled the racing bike out of the way and threw a cover on it.

For anyone who might be interested, First, I took a few shots of the workings of the bike.

Pretty simple wiring:
(this is all inside of the stock battery box)

Gauges, Controls, (I made the chin pad out of a flip flop):
