    Yep, I had to replace the entire right side of the forks. Had some welding issues. Nothing new there. I need to remember to grind stuff and arrange lighting better before posting. Not.

    The bike came with a kick stand welded on to the bottom of the engine plate. It was pretty nasty, but on a whim I cut it out, took it apart and got it looking better. The stand portion was pretty bad, bent up, and out of shape. I never did find out what stand is "supposed" to be in the bike.

    I had dismantled a "Cat" stand last week that I am using on another project. For the Cat stand, I fabricated a longer stand portion, drilled the hole, made the slots, worked great. I saved the shorter piece, and surprisingly, it fit and worked great on this one.



    Next dilemma was where to put it. No matter what I did, the mounting bolts would interfere with the engine. I decided I'd either weld in some studs, or use some flathead screws. So that is what I did. I can always weld them in later, but for now they work well. Bottom side:



    It looks about right.
