fuck it, less IS more...

 an attempt at cutting the fuckers square
 one of my better ideas
 lose six inches and.... 
ooohhh you're a lane splitter baby....
sort of...

So in reality I have to mail Roland and ask him to make a slug/ spacer for the bars and get my shit together and weld. Not been a happy bunny on that score, after my earlier success. The consensus is not enough amps and or the torch tungsten not close enough.

I am taking the tank, mudguard and oil tank to Mr Flakey on the Fourteenth of Feb.
Its not just to ensure that I'm not sitting around in June waiting for painted parts. Its to give me deadlines and get those fucking brackets welded, and off to Flakey and not rattle can black.  Then the frame can be powdercoated ( Gun-metal metallic gloss) and all the other shit will follow on in its logical and demanding way.

What colour?
A Deep Red Metalflake. (She was red originally)
Tank design - Swirling Gold & Black & Silver design from the filler cap.
So thats the biggy cost wise plus clutch and beltdrive. Everything else is a refinement next year.
