On to seat #3. All of the previous designs did not fit quite well, nor did they have the proper provisions for a licence plate, turn signals, or a rear fender. Hopefully 3rd time is the charm with this "Universal Bimota Seat" from Airtech-Streamlining.

I sold the fancy Falicon crank and Carrozzeria wheels, and netted the purchase price of the entire bike. I also wanted to get a titled frame in case I do ever want to put it on the street. I found one in Montreal for $150, but of course I needed an engine as well. I came across a 2014 that looked to be in excellent shape (save the scratched alternator cover). Bought that for $400, with another $200 in shipping costs (to North Dakota, not across the border).
When those arrived, I started to assemble the bike and inspect some things...
The engine sidecovers went back on, as did the JRI shock and the zx6r forks.
There are a bunch more parts inbound, so I'll keep things updated as I can. Still haven't heard the engine run, but having removed the clutch and alternator cover for inspection, the engine looks very clean inside, and turns over OK.
