Diesel Land Speed Racer Mk2 - Part 3 - Motor Mounts And Setbacks

During the summer, work has slowly progressed on the second diesel bike. The first major milestone was installing the welded motor mounts on the Sportster frame. I hit a snag when a hidden rotten section blew through, but I was able to clean it up and cover it with a welded patch.
