The seat

Hi there we'll I have finally finished the seat for my bike it has been a while making this seat and I'm happy how it turned out I don't know how many hours I have spent on it possible a good 40 to 60 to get it right and happy hour is on with a big glass of RUM and a good cigar to celebrate the this build. 

Mud gard

Hi there. Well I have made the the rear wheel gard . It took me 12 hrs and 18 hrs to polish with a hand drill , and still needs more work but is not that much more. I think  the position of the gard is in line with the tail.  I tried in different positions it  looked good in all but I decided were it's. , now build  the front one .

Air filter
