    I tried to get it in the Christmas family photo. Wife had other ideas.

    Hooked up electrical and cables.
    All that's left is my chain tensioner and the tank.
    Gonna bore the exhaust too I guess.

    HAD TO TAKE IT FOR A PEDAL RIDE.
    Very comfortable. Much more comfy that the Panama Jack (which I sold today).

    But I do miss the PJ. She was sweet in her own way. Gotta make room in the garage I guess.

    It would look sooo much better if you took that hideous decal off of the clutch cover.

    It is hideous isn't it.
    I have a chrome clutch cover sitting right here next to me. I don't want it to get all messed up until finished pictures and maiden voyage.

    Looks like we made it....

    We've put 50 miles on her today.
    Here are the completed build (but it never really complete is it) pictures.

    I would like to thank SB for making me a beautiful tank. And everyone who's ideas I stole.

    I just snapped that was your tank. It looks great with the stitched leather.(^)

    They pop up on ebay every now and then. This one was still shrink wrapped. It was an interesting smell when I cracked the faded yellow plastic and breathed in the 47 year old air.
