build up update!

so.. im working on this bike... mostly what ive done is clean it to the best of my abilities with out taking it all apart.. paint parts... polish.. i cleaned the carbs but in the mist i lost a jet screw.. sooo im waiting on my rebuild kit anyway... this is it right now.. but expect a new seat, new bars, new exhaust, and new wheels in the near future.. then when i get time and after im done playing around a complete engine rebuild... but here enjoy tell me what you think.

build up update!
build up update!
flipped handlebars it works ok but i gotta get the clubmans because these hit the tank if you had to take a real sharp turn

build up update!
i took the front blinkers off and moved them to the back to keep them closer to the bike

build up update!
and this is how it sits right now...
