This is where I'm at on my bike right now

I just installed the 900RR frontend, I'm waiting for the swingarm should be here Tuesday it's off a 2000 600 F4.

I'm making the seat base out of balsa, fiberglass and epoxy.

I made a pan to cover the subframe, then I made a seat pan that I could cover to make the seat.

I haven't ever done upholstery before I'm going to use a four way stretch vinyl called Allsport.

I think it's what they use on jet ski seats.

Getting the foam shaped to the right contour will be the hard part.

One other thing I was wondering was has anyone ever installed spoked rims on an F model.

And why can't I get my pics to show up in my post.

Very nice, but the jackstands on the engine sidecovers looks sketchy...

Are you going to join the seatpad and the tail section together?

If you think the jackstands are sketchy you wouldn't have liked the tow strap swing I had it hanging from.

I am going to make a trim piece that fits on the area where the sidecover used to be.

I'm not sure how it will end up. Once I have the seat covered I can make the other parts to fit.

The seat will sit as it is now .I'm not going to mold the two together. I will just cover the seat pan and install fastners in the bottom that hold it on the subframe.

Nice single shock conversion, what rear end did you use or is the F4 rear end back there?

Thats the stock swingarm

I bought a 600 F4i swingarm I just need to fit it.

I'm going to keep the comstar wheels on it so I will have to put different bearings in the wheels.

I will have to make some spacers to center the wheel in the new swingarm.

I'm not sure about the swingarm pivot bolt, It's probanly not the same diameter so I will have to change those bearings too.
