Aluminum tail is taking shape

Getting this bad boy roughed in and tacked together. I'll weld it up and smooth the welds but full metal finishing will wait il until the tank is done too.

The devil is in the details

Mitered the ends of the cut off frame tubes to mirror the angle of the tail section I'm working on for the GS550z

Hammer form beginnings

The GS550 cafe racer I'm working on is going to have a hammer formed, raw aluminum tank and tail. All the mounts are welded to the frame and the time has come to start shaping the tail. I made the bottom template yesterday and hammered the base into rough shape.
