Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Roughed out a wooden buck to make a gas tank that will fit between the tubes because I hated the look of the kit tank perched on top of the top tube. Oh yea, started refurbing a old seat I bought at a swap meet for fifty cents.
Oh man, she is gonna be cool! Great DIYing Jax.

Forgot to say hello and welcome Jax
worst apocalypse ever
