A few good days of work. The tank still has 4 known holes to fill, but otherwise it seems solid. The shifter looks all screwy, but it moves smoothly, and once I got the burr out of the hole in the brass link it stopped sticking. The brake linkage is working great, but I feel I may need to beef it up just a touch. I am working on the seat now. That will tell me what kind of fender to fabricate.
