DOOOOD!  That is so sweet.  Did it start off as a Super Sport or is the header aftermarket?

Looks good.
Seen it all, done it all, can't remember most of it.

The rear part is a early yamaha dirt bike gas tank cut up. The bike was on craigs list but the add said it was also listed on ebay. When i looked no one had bid yet so i emailed the guy and offered his craigs list price pending comformation with my wife lol. When i went back on ebay there was now a bid...crap i thought. 10 more minutes later it met reserve. I thought for sure the guy would let ebay play out. But he let me have it for the craigs list price and even delivered it from NH. It will be at the speed runs next year!!

     Neat idea.  I'll be checking some of my "almost used up" inventory from a different perspective before it goes off to the scrapper now.

     Looking forward to checking out your bike and meeting you at Loring next season.
