Oh my bad Steve, the plan is to tilt the motor so that i can raise the front sprocket about 2/3 inches. If i can make that happen it should clear on the top and bottom allowing me to bring the swingarm down more and giving me more ground clearance as well.

Things aren't too bad, just taking it one day at a time. Hope your doing ok too, i saw that your in between jobs...

One day at a time is sometimes all we have, I can relate.

Here are some better views, i sprayed the tank with grey primer so you can see the lines of the tank better and took her off the center stand...

That looks like it is going to be a blast to ride - I see long, smokey burnouts!

Looks like that chain may fit - ???

Ok it's been awhile but now im starting to get a little free time Smile

I decided to weld the risers and added steel threaded inserts as well...

I was also looking at the ignition switch and found out that it's almost a direct match to the Suzuki mount!!!

So with a little help from my old friend Dremel i was able to open up the "key hole" and bam!!!
And to top it off, the stem lock lines up too!!!
