Das Bike Projekt: One Step forward….

… and Two steps back!

Im waiting on some carb adapters, so I moved on to mounting the seat adapter plate which pushed the solo seat back 3 inces, but mounting the Big Churchgate tank is proving to be a masive pain in the tail. I must have had it on and off a dozen times yesterday. The Petcock hits the starter cover and airbox, the crossover fitting hits the started cover on the other side…. Lots of cuttting and grinding that i had NOT planned on, and it isnt pretty!….

I have half a mind to put the stock tank back on for now…..
