Stripped the frame so I could do a proper chop. Took it as far as I could with the angle grinder.

The finish work will take longer. Good enough for fitting the headlight.

I envy your ability to focus and schedule, and not allow yourself to be stopped by far more real distractions than I have .
the meaningless crap that I allow to distract me and suck my energy is frigging embarrassing.

Finalizing ideas for the custom swingarm.

Well, looks like the custom swingarm is taking a backseat to other projects.

The builder hasn't been able to start on it yet.

I didn't expect this delay. Starting to get nervous because I'd like this roller to get custom pipes pretty soon. Still have to finish the current 2 pipes, and make 2 more, then the 500 pipes.

There's a chance I may need to forget the one-off swingarm, and get my R6 arm back. Hope it doesn't come to that!
