Back on two wheels

    I picked up my new slider bushings for the bottom of the fork tubes, but I forgot to get another bottle of fork oil so I haven't filled them up yet.  I compared type E to some Dexron 3 ATF I had in the garage.  In the cold weather the type E fork oil is thicker than the ATF.  I have heard of people using ATF in their forks but I've never tried it myself.  The new bushings are nice and gray.

     I got some stainless hardware to mount the handlebars and headlight.  They look nice on there.

     The next step is to mount the gas tank.  I like the way the bars look jacked forward like that.  I don't have the seat mounted yet so I don't know if that will be the final position.
