Are you going to be relocating the pegs and doing forward controls? Doesn't look like much of a lean angle right now. When I added floorboards to my bike it scraped in the corners unless I have the suspension all aired up.
When the only tool you have is a hammer every problem starts to look like a hippy.

Yeah, I plan to move some stuff still.
Heres the.list as of now.
Plan is to strip the rear off, DONE
Weld the 4 tubes to for the rear, DONE
Extend chain,
Make seat
,Make rear tank latch (currently held down by seat)
Move pegs, 
Extend rear brake, DONE
Make/extend shifter
,Move tach, DONE
Remove, front fender, DONE
Fluids,
Points (or cdi, one cylender so easy peasy)
Tires,
Ride.

Controls.and pegs are ptobably next.
Unless I find a chain breaker then all bets are off.

As for a lean angle..... yeah not a super lot. Lowest part is the peg assembly wich goes under the frame.
Its about 4 inches to the peg assembly, and it would have almost 5 to the next lowest point.

Cereal? what dicks.

I went to the cycle shop here in warrenton. I asked if they had any used coils off an old honda. "No, we usually throw those away when they go bad" then laughed at me. Seriously you fucking dicks. You tear shit down all the time, surely not every single honda you have torn apart was due to a bad coil.... n who just tears dirt bikes down and throws all the shit away? ......... :|

Pounded on the seat for an hour or so again. Im hating it less each time, learning more about bending the steel.
ImageI was going to go out and move my pegs, but just stared at them for 45 minutes, then cut the.kickstand down instead.
Then started messing around with ideas for a rear "fender"
Not going to decide on that yet.

you going to leave the seat bare or put some padding on it at some point? around town probably ok. anything longer then that and your b-hole is going to hate you for 2 days.
