    Thank you very much. The frame was cut up to a few inches behind the shock mounts. I modified the original tabs to mount the fender and welded them into the tubing. The seat pan is a medium cutlass from Airtech. They manufacture very nice pieces . See Airtech Streamling.com. I've been building for 5 or so years. Each winter maiking different changes and advancements. In Sept. of 2014 I hit a piece of carpet while merging on the hiway and went down hard hi side.The frame snapped my ankle and dislocated my right foot. After that I went for the current look. Having only done a couple of half assed two tone jobs I took some advise from friends and set out to do the paint job you see now. It needs some touch up and smoothing and more clear ,but I am happy with it for a novice with little equipment or experience. I have a picture of it before the accident on my profile. Thanks for looking. Keep in touch.
