Aaaaaand...it's done.

Just picked up the tank and wrapped up the build today. Touching up the paint on the frame is the last thing to do and give her a good shine over the weekend. I have the tank badges on order but those are just bolt on. Here she is after a nice day of riding and getting her nice and dirty! Ignore the wet spots on the ground, not from my bike. There's still some room to improve on little things (painting exhaust hangers, etc.) but it's my vision come to life.

Nice to see another one back on the road but, crikey mate! How old is that front tyre???

Looks to have a line of cracks right around the sidewall of the front one.
Go easy on that, eh?

Clutch cable broke...hoping none of you would pick up on that . New one on order should be here on Friday.

Front tire is as old as dirt. I have a new one sitting next to me in my room but I didn't have the patience to take it to the local shop today and have it installed. I'll be putting it on Friday with the new clutch cable.

Hopefully the rearbtire as well, if it is also older than dirt.
