    Over the weekend figured out how we want the back end of bike to look ... well I approved my husband did all the fabrication. I was painting outside mind you and he was having too much fun playing around with the T-Dub. Here's the look:



    I really liked the look of a grab bar to complete the back end of the bike ... this one comes off an Suzuki SV, a spare from one of ours. Just shows you should hang on to some things! The two black circular do-dads below the tail light are not only mounts to the grab bar but are actually lights for the license plate ... 2 birds with one stone I'd say! Another view:



    Side profile:



    Back light and indicators where all bought from Cycle Gear. At the hardware store bought a sheet of metal that will be fabricated into a mud guard to sit between frame and back tire ... but for now looks like this



    Since we had stripped most of the bike we had to be creative in lifting up the swingarm while we played with tail light positioning. Screwdrivers are as versatile as duct tape!



    Purchased a dent removal online and with some patience and a lot of repositioning was able to remove most of the handle bar dent. If you study the tank long enough and in the right light you can still see and feel some blemishes. Tank will be re-painted a matte army green color so hopefully will be hidden. Here's the dent-less tank:



    All in all a good afternoon's progress. Next up is battery compartment and new head light mount. Stay tuned!!

    That looks pretty cool, I like it.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    You should use some of the sheet metal to fill in the triangle gap that the brace makes on the rear subframe. Looking good though

    Thanks ... great idea and I will. It'll neaten the look! Sometimes you stare at it long enough you miss the obvious!
