Thank you all for appreciating the work. There as been a lot of progress since my last post. Phoenix cycle has done an amazing job bringing all the pieces together. As it stands now, all parts in including speedometer, seats and lights are in. Front of the bike lowered by almost 2 inches. Did not like the pin stripe on the wheels, left the wheels all powdered coated satin black. Tires are installed. Engine and exhaust fully assembled.
Customization begins next to enhance aesthetics.

Looking good! Which bars are those, and are they 22mm? I am looking for a set with similar height / pull back..

Flanders BMW sidecar bars might be what you're after.

Yes... I'm currently "torn" between the Flanders B20 Sidecar bars and the A20 Euro bars..
I wish they had better pictures, mainly the side view of each showing how much the bars angle up/down at the grip section. I can tell the sidecar bars have less pull back, but they also look flatter, I'm wondering if the A20 might angle down slightly based on the perspective the top view photo is showing.

May 10th 2017: Seat loop in, the frame will sit inside of the seat and hang down about 3/4 inch. This is where the rear lights will attach. Fabrication is almost done. Will be sending over to paint next week. More pics coming in.

Progress has been slow lately. All parts are back from paint. The last remaining ones ordered are gasket for gas cap and gear lever. Past weekend refurbished handle bar controls which looked pretty dated after almost 30 years of service.

@Filmcamera, it took almost a week because of multi colored switches. Most of the time taken was for paint to dry. Did not remove any switches, sanding, masking, rattle can spray throughout followed by clear and rubbing compound to top it off.

Prakash,that switch gear renovation is a labour of love!
I rubbed mine with "vim and vigour"and the milkiness of the plastic surfaces rubbed away revealing original brightness.Took about ten minutes ,no where near as loving as you're effort. :popcorm

Finally the bike is complete. It took almost 11 months in the making. Reveal day is Sept 2nd at Owl's Head Auto Museum's Vintage Motorcycle show (http://owlshead.org/events/detail/vintage-motorcycle-meet). In the mean time enjoy some of the teaser pics.

Maybe he can compare jokes with the guy who is going to appraise the cover.

Frankly, all the excitement is making me hungry.  :popcorm
