    Eye candy. Happy day when the PCer calls to say your parts are ready for pickup. Looks great.

    Small progress. picked up a little harbor freight welder and got the frame welded up. Thinking of polishing the valve covers and oil filter cover and having them powder coated clear. Anyone have experience with clear powder on valve covers. curious as to how it holds up.

    Fatboy I was able to work something out with him. It still took another 4 weeks of emails and missing parts but after 6 months I finally have everything. Hopefully will have some progress pics soon.

    So while I've been waiting for parts I decided to take on another project in the meantime. My daughter loved riding on the honda and was pretty miffed when I cut it up. She not a big fan of riding on my Vegas Jackpot (too much of a hot rod). So I started looking for a project that I could ride for a couple seasons and then Cafe if I needed a new project. I ended up scoring an 82 Virago 920 with 5,800 miles for $475 but had to drive 9hrs through a blizzard to get it. she's a funky old girl and I think the gauge cluster belongs in a Delorian but should be an interesting side project.Name:  920-1.jpg

Size:  43.3 KB So instead of a dusting we got a foot of snow which gave me some time to putt around in the garage. I needed to find a new home for my plate so I fabricated an extension off of the original hardware and mounted it to the old shock mount
