just waiting on the seat from upholstery, some pics of what I started with and how it turned out. runs great and was an enjoyable build, Eric from OldMiniBikes was a great help. ready to find another !! made the scrape brake, exhaust, exhaust brackets, rotated the predator tank 180 degrees and made forward mounting brackets for tank (couldn't fill tank in stock predator position), had to tie a bandana around the neck, first test of triple tree turning after new bushing took a couple of nice chunks out of the paint!! not a drop of paint left for touch up!!...but a bandana gives it some New Mexico chic

That's a cool looking bike! I almost painted my bike the same way during this years build off. I opted for black being the main colour with green and silver accents.
