Let's get moving!!!!

Parts came in today, and nicely I was off from work. I have been waiting for a number of weeks for a one off sissybar that was fabbed by the OKCKingpin in Oklahoma. The part looks nice, VERY close to what I wanted and will work fine. I put in it in place, and marked my rear fender for death.

Fender before the cutting wheel got a hold of it!



You can see how many times I changed the design of the rear fender.

Grinding wheel was removed and cutoff wheel installed. Goggles, check, earplugs, check. GO! Cutting went pretty smooth, no snags and I still have all my fingers.

The fender once it has been cut.





Once it was cut I rotated the mocked sissy bar back into place to get a good idea of what it is going to look like. I think I like it.

Much progress will be made on this bike now! I am going to go over and weld the mounts on the bar tonight, and hopefully take the frame to the powder coater this weekend. If I really get going, I can maybe get the tins to the painter this weekend or Monday at the latest. I have a few parts, including that sissybar, that are going to chrome as well. Once those things return, the final build begins. I am starting to feel it again................

Thanks, I need to get a welder. I traveled 50 miles and an hour and 35 minutes last night for ten minutes worht of welding. Good company though, but the drive was too far for that shit.

What? No man, you need to come over to OC everytime you need a weld! Keeps me from getting bored!

Spent two hours today finding my frame......
