I got the TS out today and broke in the motor some more. Maybe one more heat cycle to seat the rings and she’ll be ready for the road! I also finally got the tail light mounted/ wired and license plate on. So it will be my daily until it sells. It sure is a joy to ride! I also put a muffler on the stinger so it doesn’t hurt my ears anymore…it was way too loud before. Pretty proud of the silencer, you can barely even see it.
Man this weather has been killing me! I can’t get a lick o’ work done when it is 2 degrees outside and in my shop! We’ve been having snow and ice storms and have more coming down the pike. So I haven’t had much to share on here. But since my sewing machine is in the house I have been practicing with it. I re-did the rising sun seat for the XS750 a 3rd time! And this one I am actually proud of! This is the best pic of it for now…
Also did my first commissioned seat. Which turned out very nicely I must say. Granted it was like the most simple seat pan ever. It is just part of a cafe style seat.
I’m also working on a chair for my step dad, which I’ll post later, and someone shipped me an old stock seat for their triumph that I’m doing right now. First time working with a stock pan and foam…it is HARD! But coming along nicely. Just need to form it to the seat now.
That was the second attempt at the cover…the first was a big lesson! I’m learning tons with each seat I love it so much!
