Looks good (of course). This first part reminds me of my old sheetmetal days...can you say "bend allowance"

In the photo below, it looks like the Revival Supernova performs pretty well.

Continue on my friend

The Supernova is very very respectable. The only concern I had was that it's only 3/4" of lens. A pin point of light at 100'. As a turn signal light, I would have no hesitation but I'd be using it as a brake light too. On the highway I want better visibility at normal reaction distances.

Got the ARP stainless fasteners from Alloyboltz.com. Theyre a veteran owned/operated company selling US made fasteners. This is a really nice kit. Everything is clearly labeled. Even then the different sizes within a bag are separately sealed off. Some of the flanges are even turned down (where the ARP flange diameter wouldn't work, I assume). Nicely polished and these aren't even the "show polish" version. Highly recommended.

FedEx man just dropped off some more hardware.

Got some stainless 3/8 sex bolts and shoulder bolts that I plan to modify for tank mounting bolts.
Some stainless 10-32 undercut flat head screws for the seat trim mounting.
Grade 5 armor-coat socket heads for sprocket adapter.
Grade 5 hex caps for sprocket that will need modified to fit.
Stainless button heads for brake rotor.

Custom tank bolts...

This is going to be good....Pretty crafty with the light brackets I must say.Don't sweat the no fender thing as you can always throw a Voodoo fender on it and be right back in the game. Also,if you feel the strut mounts are a little thin you can always build em back up...(welder)

Thanks for the compliment. That means a lot coming from you. I always thought your bike was badass. Much of my early inspiration came from Rocket Bobs. I was originally thinking about a pintail but just couldnt get into the point at the tail. I'm sure he'd glass up a custom one for me, but it would have to be at least a grand. Too salty for me. He makes the best custom Dynas in the world, IMO. He seems to be moving away from them, tho. Makes me a little sad. More Dyna Love, Pete!

Fitted my brackets and the sleeves that cover the top shock bolt. Small detail but worth the effort, I think. Refining the shock mounting ears and cover fit, too.

Never too late to learn! Biggest hurdle is getting over the fear of failure.

Exactly!
Some people pay money to learn at a school.
Think of your ruined projects as tuition.
