Looks like you have a good start there. It appears that most of the pieces are there from this angle. As long as the motor turns over you should be good.

Looking VERY nice! I like the way you've got the rear seat pod to mirror the lines of the rear of the tank. You and Fig ought to hook up and swap notes.

many thanks , its been my main focus point i havent seen to many of these with a seat that matches the tank, hopefully it will be a bit unique .i have been through some big ups and down with this almost at the selling it point , but i think were on the home stretch .fingers crossed
