Been working on my Swinger 2 (pics inside)

So I bought a Swinger 2 from some dude in Wisconsin, and he pretty much lied about the condition. Stripped pedal threads in one of the crank arms (wtf? how?), petcock busted in the closed position, gas tank has rust in it, etc. He said it "runs good." Okay, how does it run at all when the petcock won't even let any gas in?

Anyway, while I've been getting the parts together to repair the thing (and saving for a kit), I've been doing other things to it to pass the time.

Here's how it looked when I started:

Since then, I found some straight clubmans off a parted out CBR750, removed the fenders, and cut down the seat mount. So here she sits now:

I'm not happy with how the seat positioning is, so I'm going to have to do some more cutting to get it like so:

I just hope I don't have to do any welding since I don't have a welder! haha

I'm kinda glad that it doesn't run yet, because if it did I'd be riding it and not getting any work done to it. :)
