    Do to a slow down at work, I have been asked/forced to take four days of vacation. A lot of work will be done on the project. I have mocked up a shifter linkage that
    .works, and am trying to finish up the fuel tank right now. I should have some more pics soon.

    While I'm here, does anyone have a good suggestion on sealing this tank? I have most of it welder, and I am planning on filling with solder, if I can get it to stick. I know there is some good sealers that go inside. Anyone have experience with these, or sealing from the outside?

    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.Name:  DSC_0020.JPG

    Another round of pics. I am not going to use the pod filters, I'm just using them to make sure that the battery and coolant reservoir don't get in the way of the intake. I'm not sure I care so much for the rear fender yet, but I am not done with it, so who knows.

    'Eager" 1979 CX500C Maroon.
    Name is derived from the sound of this engine at highway speeds.
    Like its eager to go.
    had a Horse that was "Eager"
    But didn't sound the same.
    So I called him "Duke"

    It's an old blow torch. My wife brought home two of them for me. She had this build in mind.

    Oh, the torch is the coolant reservoir. I thought it would give a nice touch.

    I would loosly clasify this as "Dieselpunk" mixed with post apocolypse. What are they putting in the water up there.
    I do like the alcohol blow torch.

    I realize it is still in progress, but I'm lost on the concept overall. The front end scares the shit out of me. And all the tacked on bits are trouble waiting to happen in my mind. But it is yours, so do as you like.

    That said, I have seen some pretty tidy SteamPunks............you have a long way to go to get there.
