Got my bars and vapor gauge on, starting to look like something now:

hell yeah its too cold! thats why i'm doing the build now. theres still snow and ice on the roads here. i'll be able to take it around my neighborhood as the build progresses but i'm going to wait until it rains a few times to ride the main roads. road salt builds up and its quite slippery.
