Making progress I think

So I had my angle grinder with the cut off disc in hand and decided I'd get closer to getting the seat mounted.

Now you see it...Now you don't.

I'm hoping it doesn't come back to annoy me later on in the build. I've also marked off the end where I'll be chopping as well and then putting a brace at the back in the form of a hoop or a straight cross-piece.

And I was decently ambitious, I got the Gordon Frame kit mostly installed. Kinda sloppy on some of the cuts but it gets the job done and it should be pretty decent looking.

On Wheels

Finally got to put the frame on wheels and roll it around a little bit.

Makes for the first big step towards the end goal of a completed project.

Well shit....

Good news first.

New brake pistons from:

From germany to us, all 4 for a good bit less then oem. And on top of that it's stainless steel.
Which means these won't rust again.

I also picked up an handy motorcycle jack, currently holding up the 750 F project.

Bad news.

After bleeding the brakes on the goldwing, I jacked up the bike and spun the wheel and noticed that the rotors were warped.
So that's one part. The other part is the carbs need to be cleaned out again...
The idle is off and even on choke I can barely keep the bike running.
Just meaning that there's gunk in the idle circuit on the carbs...I'll try running it a bit more to see if it clears out, but I have my doubts.
