    It's a good start Murdock. I've got a '79 café' as well. You may want to drop the forks some and use a fender brace. Also, the XS500 rear wheel will bring up that back end.
    What are your seat plans? I really like the one I got from Hotwing Glass. Unfortunately, I see their website is not working...

  3. hell yeah man that's cool with shit right now I'm running racing suspension in the back and went up to a 15 and spring Wichita at levels everything out, planning on going to a lower profile tire and all the way around to trying to finish level in and out fiberglass cowl for the back so that way I can still run a seat pan and then you have to be able to have it removed but I've built a couple of other seats near wrapped in leather style but I'm working toward build my own fiberglass with a hump in the back. You're just for me to ride and then use my crocodile skin leather to see two person seat that I've already made
