WOW that is one hell of a paint job You have done an amazing job and also given me a few ideas for the paint work on mine. It is great when people go to the time and trouble to explain what they are doing,and show this with pictures as well, well done cobra.

i love it when a plan comes together?

Thanks John Opps,

I'm planning to take it out of thr garage tomorrow after I attach my seat and side covers. I'm still working on the trunk lid. I don't want to use outer hinges on the body to connect the lid so thinking about trying to use a piano hinge. I'll be posting some more pictures tomorrow on the trike.

I had a connector that wasn't plug in that changes the cb channels. After cranking the bike up found a top hose leaking under the fuel tank. It has a small pin hole so off to the parts store to get another one. I have been reading on the coolant posted on the forum so that will help. One more thing to do tomorrow.
