Our customer is building a bike reminiscent of the ones Losa Engineering did a while back. It's a 1964 cb160. We cleaned up some tabs and brackets off the frame, added the rear loop and notched a bit to mount the tail cone/seat. Added a sheet metal pan for the battery and starter solenoid complete with studs for mounting. Drilled and bent up an Aluminum battery retainer to keep the Shorai ultra light and super powerful battery in place (2 lbs. and it cranks the engine over). Fabbed the plate mount. Added a After Hours Choppers tail lamp (super easy to work with and top quality part. Buy one!). We drilled a bunch of holes in perfectly good parts and made the stainless steel linkages for the Losa Eng. rearsets (set up with GP shift pattern). We mounted a few items and made some little knick-knacks here and there. New stainless exhaust is next.
