I'll show you what I got, it's loud , mean , fast and dirty

Started making the "Comfy seat" 
Fiberglassing the seat base on a layer of shaped celotex. 
I'm gunna try and layer it with Virgin thighs wrapped in otters pockets with a layer of Hungarian ocelot pelt on top. 
Mmmmm comfy comfy miles.

Well you walk into a restaurant all strung out from the road . And you feel the eyes upon you as your shaking off the cold. You pretend it dosnt bother you but just want to explode. ( original please Alex)

Usual shit. I've been flat out like a lizard drinking. 
But I have managed to put some time in the Chopper.  And because I've been busy , I also have a little cash to buy this offset (1 1/2") 
It's bloody huge. 
But it fits . And the chain lines up. 
Now I gotta make an outrigger for it otherwise I'll knacker the bearing. ( too much torque , increased but a long lever) 

But I also spent a happy Sunday making a break calliper mount from an old sprocket , a rear brake torque arm . And doing some more to the sissy bar. 

But I did have a few hours where I just sat looking , stareing , thinking " oh fuck me , what to do next . What do I have parts for and how can I get around this " . 
Sometimes you just have to make a list . 
For me it's the only way I can see a way forward.

Kicked like a mule and bit like a crocodile

I spent a little time filling the tunnel at the front of the tank , having raised it. 
With a little filler it should look like it grew there

Also started making the sissy bar with 16 mm stainless. Bent using a butane torch a tub of brute force and a whole bucket of ignorance . ( it looks bigger than it is , due to the small shed and photo angle)
