The heart of the matter

So, with a few hours to myself on Saturday morning, I thought it would be a good idea to install the motor in the frame. Dropped in pretty nicely without too many scrapes and scratches on the frame so all in all I was happy.
Using stainless hardware makes it look pretty tidy and should stay that way for a while. I have to polish the head steady plates just because.
The front fender was a bit of a chore as I didn’t notice a stripped mounting hole until I went to bolt it on. AARRGGHH, putting in a helicoil wasn’t all that bad but I should have checked the bolt holes more carefully before installing the forks.
I set the tank on just to see how it looks and overall I like the way things are going.
