Back home and trying to stay warm!!
The donor engine is coming out of the frame now that the pipe is built. I really like the job that Avery did. He re-worked the footpeg bar so that the pipe tucks up real close to the engine.

While in the "Sunny Southland", I met up with a couple of Yamaha Enduro forum members. One had foam, the other, a reproduction seat cover. The seat will be back together in a short time.

While at the AHRMA races last weekend at Willow Springs, I found a used Akront shouldered 18" rim. I've always been a big fan of these and since the stock steel rims on the bike are so rusty that the chrome is peeling off, I figured I'd splurge and go for good looks and lightweight. Now to find a 19" for the front.

More to come...
