Well, figured I should say hi. I'm thinking about making a build thread for a project I just picked up.

1999 Honda shadow 600. Front end has been chopped and raked out. Need to clean up the welds, throw a gusset in there I think too. The wiring is all botched. Rear brake is locked up. No title. And the key is a screwdriver across the starter solenoid. Oh well it's only a $500 bad idea lol.

Plan is to get a Vermont title. Finish the front end welding. Clean up the starting circuit and blinker harness. Once that is good. I'll hard tail, fender, and sissy bar.

Here's a few pics.

Pretty cool.
Hope the project goes well.
What is the advantage of a Vermont title?

Love the rake on the front fork... looks really good!
Definitely double-check all the welds and add that gusset just to be absolutely sure she holds together.

A great find for $500 and very unique looking too!

Yep, that was this weekends work. I hit all the welds with the grinder. No porosity, and had sufficient penetration. I added some 1/8 plate over some gaping holes and went over any suspect welds. Should be very strong now.
