Well school has really gotten in the way of my rapid progress, but hopefully I can get things going again. I finally welded in my rear battery bracket and it turned out great. I hated sanding off two small spots on my brand new powder coat, but I completely forgot to deal with the battery during frame prep. Fortunately, it turned out to be far less traumatic than I thought it was going to be. A little touch up paint and it’ll be good as new.

I connected up a new extended battery cable to my starter so that it will reach the new electronics location, and I think I still have plenty of room above the battery to fit all the electronics.

The fourth picture is a little teaser of the scratch-built custom instrumentation I’m working on. I am planning on removing the stock speedometer, and integrating a GPS-based speed indicator into the tachometer housing. The confirmed components so far include a GPS reciever, and an Arduino Pro Mini micro controller. I’m still playing with the 7-segment LED’s and the small LCD screens trying to make up my mind on the direction I want to go.

The new face plate in the image is just a mock-up.
