I buy them as off cuts, from metal supermarkets.

for small off cut leftovers, they are reasonable. If you want custom order stuff, expect to pay dearly.

Added the Main power switch to the dash.

From the left, Toggle switch -Lights, pull switch - Main power, voltmeter, ignition key, and pop up circuit breaker.
Ignition operates the starter and engine kill only, main power switch controls everything else. Circuit breaker protects start system, main power switch has a fuse built on it. Red light is low oil warning light.

Progress,

Its been too chilly and dry to get paint to work right and thats slowing me up a bit. Spring is here so other issues are impeding progress.

Got some work done though

Tail light is in and wired.

Blue Led driving lights under the hood for the glow. Sorry about the focus, I had to force the autofocus to skip the flash.

Going to be held up for a bit. Broke the blade on my bandsaw, won't be able to get a new one till after payday. Which means I can't cut out the ends for my fuel tanks.

So, sanding, sanding, and more sanding.

Due to space constrictions, I have to build a custom fuel system. I decided to go with twin 5" dia, x 10" tanks. They will fit under the hood, be filled from the same filler, and be connected by a 1" tube across the lower ends. The tanks will be run to a single shut off, with a line from each tank at the top end to allow for fuel slosh under accelaration to prevent starvation.

Fitted a polished aluminum checker (tread)plate tunnel cover.

And a spring loaded twist latch so I don't land on my arse

Now this is an awesome build!!! Can't wait to see how it turns out, and I'm sure you won't disappoint!

What's this about these engines only capping out around 3200RPM?

The tanks are just pieces of 5" exhaust tubing cut to 10" long I haven't cut all the ends and fittings yet. still trying to figure out the mounting brackets.

It's close gentlemen, with the fuel tanks, it's a rideable machine, even without hte bodywork.

Pulled my hernia this morning. took the afternoon off.

spent it sanding the nose piece, and drinking beer cheers

I think thats just a matter of tweaking the governer. Its a gx390 clone, a 99% match for all the aftermarket stuff.

If it starts coming up lean, I'll have to play with the ports. there is a lot of room ifor port work.

I would be VERY surprised if it wasn't already governed to 3600. Even still, as you know, GX's and clones have a VERY user-friendly governor setpoint adjustment. Should be no problem at all.
