Yes, that's a very nice English wheel. Congrats on your low-cost approach.

Cheers,

Doing a little more work on the cowl and headrest/fairing. The fairing was tricky...spent WAAAY too much time on it. i am going to weld all the rear panels together first, then cut in the fairing. That way i can position it properly and hopefully get the body shape to "flow" nicely

Anyone want to help with the deck lid (it is steel - need to make it in aluminum and it is too big to do by myself) It looks flat, but actually has about 5" crown in the center - lots of wheeling!

Hoping to weld the rear and rear corners together this weekend....

I'd enjoy giving you a hand but I can't make it this week. Next week should work though.
