Now it looks like a bike! Wheels back from Transcanada with tires mounted. Fender came in the mail today -- 4 holes drilled and its on -- I can see why people swear by Sharkskins products. No kickstand yet -- just a racebike pit sidestand to keep everything upright. No wiring, but little appears to be standing in the way of the whole shebang getting fired up.
I think my mind is made up -- I'll go with a superbike tail section, taking advantage of the Ducati seat for comfort.
I still need to sort out things like the kickstand, getting the wiring hooked up, and finding some sort of decent-looking radiator overflow bottle. But again, these are minor details.
I like it, but I'm oviously biased...
