Looks like crap. Start over.

I think you need about 7 more short pieces where the tube meets the frame. yeah, at least 7...maybe 9.

what fuel pump are you going to run wit the new cell... (in tank or external?)

if external, I'd recommend a different cell with a bottom sump... I have the same cell in the buggy and have had problems with the pump priming. Its because the pump has to work double duty to siphon the fuel from the cell, and then pump to the injectors... where as with a bottom sump, the pump is gravity fed...

it's a '51...it's just been modified some

How do you combat the priming problem? I can't use the bottom sumped cell I had originally planned for.

Have you thought of using a small tank or some fuel line looped a few times to fight the priming issue?

either way, the pump is working harder than it has to. (shortening its life) another alternative would be to plumb in a second low-pressure pump before the high-pressure one...

My buddy Ryan came over while I was at work and worked on a few tubes. It's nice to have friends ready to help.

This is just the start of the truss.

It kinda looks like something from this angle.

I know it seems crazy that I'm always over there helping out but it's like I'm addicted or something.

center that tube on the handlebars...(i know you know, but figured I'd be "that guy" and point it out ) the gusset really helps in that corner too

I left my shades over there, get Clint to bring them this weekend.
