While your tank is off can I suggest putting a car battery in the spot where the ABS unit and the original battery sit.Makes starting much better.

Cheers

I'm drooling all over these pictures! Gawd, wish I had the $$ for you to build me something similar to that. I'd prefer a chair more comfortable for SWMBO and/or the dog. But other than that, everything you're doing just looks perfect. With something like that I could chase Drone down the CDT! Whooheee!
