This is a render with a shortened seat, which is what I'm going to go with, since it'll be a solo rider bike anyways. Looks more aggressive in my opinion.

The bike is looking awesome!
If I could throw out an opinion...
Don't go too short on the seat cowl. There may be times when you'll want to get down on the tank, which will be easier off you can scoot your back some.
I agree it looks more aggressive short, just suggesting something to consider.
Makes me feel like I should get out in the shed and get my street tracker out of the cobwebs.

The innovative human mind never ceases to amaze me! Great job and I'm sure an overwhelming sense of accomplishment.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, here are some updates finally!

I decided to remove 3.5 inches from the cowl, still have plenty of seating space and it's a lot more aesthetically pleasing in my opinion.

Rear subframe hoop is also shortened.

Seat looks great!
You are gonna feel a real sense of accomplishment every time you ride it and you'll think, "yeah, I built that" every time you walk in the garage.

Some small progress, weather has been crappy so I've been pretty lazy lately...I've gotten the brake disc on, just polishing up the caliper now.

Front Firestone installed with new fork boots.
