Today's mission was to get the chassis, tank and side panels ready for Randy, so he can take them to his shop, paint 'em up and make them pretty!
Frame with MT250 tank and home-made side panels that came from the old parts bike;
Factory tank locators are in the way;
A quick cut with angle grinder and cutting wheel (ground off flush later);
Dropped old tank on and took a quick measurement, wanted to make sure the new tank wasn't going to ride too low and hit the motor;
New tank, just high enough so when dropped into final location should clear motor just fine;
Another quick mock up just to see how it all fits, before getting out the torch and hammer;
Frame was a bit wide at the top;
Lots of heat and a big hammer!
While the frame cooled, decided to clean some motor parts. These old gaskets are really stubborn!
After the frame cooled, mocked everything up one more time, looking good!
What would John Penton do?
