With all that framing you're adding, surely to god you can find a slick way to relocate your fuel tank and lower the seat.

Also, I suggest finding a way to brace those exhaust pipes up before the vibrations and shocks get to them and end up cracking your cylinder heads...

Also i plan on lowering the seat as soon as i get a new gas tank so i can relocate it and that way i can build the top part of the cage without it being
so high.
Also the stacks do have supports.

When you are done are you going to put anything tractor related back on it (fenders, hood,etc..)?

The aluminum tread plate stuff would look good, but they would be harder to mount. Besides that, most of the BMI stuff is geared towards karts an minibikes- designed to go over tires that are only 15" or 16" in diameter. Put a wee little fender like that over a fullsize car tire, it's gonna look dumb.

I say go with the steel trailer fenders. Cheap, made for larger tires, weldable, etc. Then again, that's exactly what I did... LOL

Oh that's right. Maybe cut that other side of the Ron off like the one towards the seat? I'd look cleaner
