Engine came in today
no intake or exhaust or any electronics but total costs were as follows:
2007 883 engine on ebay $1012
Shipping $600
Customs and VAT $320

The main problem right now is that the engine has a pulley and my rear wheel has a sprocket so I will have to convert the engine to a sprocket before I can line up the power train then center the rear wheel.

Out to Paint

With the seat pan now installed, the oil tank mounted and tested and the rear fender made it is time to ship out the sheet metal for a preliminary coat of paint. I doubt i will go with the Motorhead theme for the final paint but Ikinda dig the way it looks when i put it on in photoshop.

Got the gas tank done and the seat pretty much figured out so next thing is to try to figure out what kind of oil tank and where. Probably looking at something like a Moon Eyes style just not sure on where to put it yet.
