Some days i find myself just looking at this bike wondering if its right, i mean i think it looks good but is it right, can i live with the raked neck, do i want a round oil tank.
When i started this build i had no idea of how the finished article would look, just wanted to see how it would unfold using what i had to hand and keeping it as cheap as possible, but this in turn i suppose is causing my these questions now.
I figure once its build i will ride it a bit, and change anything i am not happy with before stripping for finishing, hopefully it won't be to much change or it will never get done.
I guess because of budget, skill and time there will always be compromise.

i also had a play on the lathe with my risers, and then put some heat on them to bend them, unfortunately my pipe fitting torch was not up to the job, so they did not get bend.
