    I also removed the air box and then put the bottom mount back in which holds the brake light switch. It doesnt stick up very far and it also holds the inner part of the stock rear fender which it appears you have omitted. Be careful without a fender the water can spray up on the air filter pods. You probably want a hugger or the stock fender in there. Either way its looking decent keep it up.

    another update. Received all my parts back from powder coater. Went with Bengal Silver with clear coat over top. I found a new guy in Kenosha Wisconsin. He did a fantastic job. and everything was only $350. That included frame, center stand, side stand, upper and lower triples, swingarm, front and rear fender, motor mounts, front engine/ radiator mount, risers, license bracket, and a handful of other small parts. He even went as far as primer powder coating the fenders, then sanding, then doing the silver. Everything got a shot of clear powder over the top.

    I was so happy with it, that he is going to do the tank too. I was going to have it painted but everyone around here wants $600-900 for a custom paint job on the tank. With this guy, he will use a high temp filler to cover the small dents that I have. Them I am going with super chrome base coat, with a candy translucent red or blue over the top. Followed by clear- maybe even some metal flake in the clear. Probably use a vinyl stencil to have Honda logo showing in the color of the base coat. He'll do all that for $200.

    Anyway, the bike is coming along nicely. I just got word that the seat was shipped out today. That came from Ginger McCabe at New Church Moto.
