May need to tattoo that one.

One positive... Scooterwest has some of the sealed beam headlights in stock again. They were a scarce item for a few years so I was dreading trying to hunt one down. But, I bought two... One for immediate replacement and one for the shelf after I blow the replacement. *ahem*

Knowing yourself is job 1.

Hahaha.
You could consider also just putting ur motor up on the handlebars where the light could provide spark.
Lemme know if you need some calculations doneā€¦

Finished (mostly) the paint and body work.

Battery side cowl turned out aces. Engine side cowl is a bit less than I had hoped, but as we had an airleak on the moisture trap just after I started painting the engine side cowl, I'll take it,

I was really pleased with my dolly and hammer work. Less so with the filler, but I learned a ton and overall it's a win, especially considering where it started.

That looks good to me!

We're always our own worst critics, and that goes double for paint and bodywork.
