    The oil bucket has been stripped, painted and put back in along with the headlamp. I got some wiring sorted out and tested. The television is blocked out as to not offend any political parties in case people were wondering.

    Bike is coming along great. I never cared if my political views offended others. I don't care what their political views are either. I am not offended by their views. I may not agree though. That is the way all should feel.

    Your tools are arranged very neatly.

    There only that way at quitting time, a project goes smoother for me when the job site is cleaned up for the next business day.

    The flamed rear fender was chopped in the front so it had to go. I had an original rear fender but the area just below the tail lamp is too long on some of them. I took a pattern off my 59 and stenciled it out and trimmed this one.

    In the end it turned out perfect just like this one on the 59

    As I stated earlier, the clutch and brake cables where shot. I bought the repro cloth clutch cable from old dude and spent way more time then anyone should be doing cutting it to fit and work right. I salvaged the old clutch inner cable and had enough outter cable to make the brake cable. They don't match but maybe at a later date.

    Also, I had one NOS and one patina oem waffle grip. As expected, the NOS one sticks out like a sore thumb. If anyone has a respectable worn black waffle grip to sell or trade out for another grip let me know.

    And now after all that and looking at the picture, I forgot to put the oiler boot on.

    What he said... The XLB is much more desirable.
