Yeah, I wouldn't have expected that either.

I don't know how I missed the Invaders even though Tools pointed them out! Those are some great looking wheels.

The front wheel is actually a halcraft mini drum that is not connected to the brake currently.

I remember those. Not very effective, but looked pretty good, and you could tell the fuzz that you did have the required front brake when he was trying to hassle you. None of your pictures show it though.

That looks nice, however it just reminded me that I need to be installing electrics into a fake one of those, and not staring at the computer.

Oil tankmis almost done.
I made 2 errors
A: I never looked inside a stock tank untill after it was welded. The case breather tube does not extend up above what will be the oil level. I will cut it off, drill it, push it a longer one.
B: I never looked inside a stock tank untill after it was welded. The return line does not extend above what will be the oil level. I will put a copper tube in the brass fitting extending it above the oil level.

Should not be a problem, but a kickstand on the right would be cool to.
