With less than a month till the Born-Free Show, it is crunch time around the shop. Chrome is finally back, the frame is back together, and engine, primary, and tranny are installed. Still making a bunch of small parts to finish off the build.
Getting some more body parts finished. The battery box latch and hinge are on and just waiting on the frame to come back from chrome. The latch was made from some one-eighth inch brass plate and an antique skeleton key.
Finally getting around to some small details. The gas cap still needed to have the seal finished up. There needs to be something to cover the spring and screw that hang under the cap and a baffle to help keep sloshing gas away from the seal. There also needs to be a small air vent. On the tail light, an LED was placed inside the housing and a neat way to secure the wiring under the fender was worked out.
