I tried different heights along the seat post and made the front mount to accommodate the position that fit the best which turned out to be as low as possible but still straight with the seat post (parting halves of rear mount aligned to seat post) See pics!
Considering how many interference problems I have seen on here, maybe I just got lucky and the pipe I got happened to be bent right.
Thanks Radmanfly, I will pay particular attention to the fitment on the next one I build, OH yes I will build another one maybe more... your bike looks like the "Black Bart" of motorbikes, cool.....
