Hello Everyone.

First bike in 20 years. 2001 Honda Shadow VT600. Had the same bike in my 20's as a daily driver for years. Always wanted to turn it into a bobber but i was too broke, so I sold it and put the money towards school. Got the itch last month and decided to finish what i wanted to start back then. Long way to go, but making progress.

Update. Sanded down the tank. Once i decide on a rear fender and get that in, I'll paint both at the same time. I also replaced the radiator cover, and deleted the right and left switch cluster. I didn't want to just cut wires and eliminate features, instead i relocated every wire and installed toggle switches or push buttons. Right side panel has the kill switch and start button. Left side has the horn, Headlight ( High low and off ), blinkers and i wired in a switch to now be able to control my running lights. The toggle for the blinkers is towards the rear of the panel, that way when i relax and drop my left arm, my hand is right on the switch.
