    engine about complete. put in a new cam chain tensioner, cleaned everything out, checked the timing, everything adjusted and new gaskets installed and a fresh paint job. i picked a cast iron look which should in theory look good with my intentions of a brown seat and orange paint. no turning back now but will see how things go along and if plans change. there will be some more details going in later but for now this is how it sits

    decided to inset my led tail light / turn signals in the rear frame loop. buying one was too much so i decided to cut a slot in mine and inset it. still some work to finalize it but it works and sits well and should be good.
