Teaser photos, in process build. Beginning final assembly, most everything for the frame came back from powder coating this week.

I'll update as things progress.

Sorry for taking so long to chime in but, I've been busy working on bikes that actually pay the bills. However, I have carved out out some time to mount the blower and carb, fabricate throttle cables (actuated via Euro spec right switch with h/l on/off function). Painted the body parts in a red/pearl that I mixed that really POPS in the sunlight!
The C5 ignition got mounted along with their coils into the shelter, then it and basket of various parts including the exhaust are at QC Coatings getting satin black and ceramic finishes (respectively).
The shorty reverse cone megs in stainless will get polished to a mirror finish when I conclude welding the spring clips on.
I'm back in the booth tomorrow to paint the inside of all the panels, satin black.
Not quite done yet but, everyday gets a little closer.

See you at the Gilmore this weekend (1100F, in/around the VJMC tent).

Really like your combination of gloss black and the "crinkle" paint on the engine.
That is a sharp looking front fender as well.

WOW! What a build so far! I am definitely curious to see how that red looks with all that black! It will be one evil looking machine for sure!

Sharp looking rig. I am a little put off with your wheels though as I am putting gold wheels on my current build as well and I really hate to think I will be accused of copying. I like those mufflers too so maybe I will copy.
Bikes at present:
80 GL1100 Interstate: Now a Cafe Racer called DRAGON WING.
81 GL1100 collecting dust with about 300,000 miles, known as BLACK BEAUTY
2008 (I think) GL1800 Nice bike but as exciting as the family sedan!
76 GL1100 yes, 1100 with 1000 heads and cams, being customized
A fleet of parts bikes awaiting resuscitation or customization or abandonment :IDTS:

I've been flogging on it all week (between other stuff) concentrating on the wiring to tie the C5 ignition, Koso instrumentation, LED lighting and a Shindengen MOSFET rectifier into play. No stock wiring.
I hope to have it all done and road tested for its first showing at the Stockbridge, MI, "All Clubs Day" on the 17th of September.
All of the following photos within the last week or so:
