The subframe looks nice done WOOT :cheers: :headbang:
I guess it should be either painted or powdercoated in colour of the main frame (should be either RAL 9006 or 9007).
By the way: your solution for the thermo unit is ways better than the solution the previous owner of my 2LA choosed:

The PO destroyed the frame by this solution screwy bonkonhead :-o :puke: but at least, i managed to get a complete frame including subframe and swing arm (in case i don't get the certificates for the given K&J swing arm and the seat) for a few bucks :grinnod:
In the meantime i changed the steering bar against a M-Bar...

Just a bit smaller, but at least with certificates for the german TÜV so that it should be possible to ride this 22mm steeringbar roadlegal instead of the welded(!) 1 inch Drag Bar.
I gues the previous owner liked to gamble withhis life, no other explanation for building such wanted breakpoints in a bike ike a welded bar and a selfmade rear-rising like the one on the following pics:

Such modifications definitely have to be reverted before riding this bike ...but it will take some time to get the cash for the needed parts to restore this bike properly...at least some plans for optical styling had been done, viewable at https://flic.kr/s/aHskqgfNUi in my mockup-gallery (all mockups done with "The GIMP" from http://www.gimp.org )...

Want Pics? Then have a look at my galleries...different topics: Bike and Car restauration, exhibitions, Trackdays (no, not me on the Track until now), carneval in cologne, other things.. ;)

Tail frame will be black to match tank for now. I might powdercoat entire bike at some point and will change colors.

Wow, your bike does look a bit messed up, doesn't it.
Even though I am German, I am happy to live in the US where you don't have to deal with TUV etc. Here you just throw stuff on your bike and you're good to go. Safe? Nope... believe me, I have seen some crazy dangerous "mods"

Been a while waiting for frame, business trip etc.
Frame is now done and I begun to put the electrical stuff on the bike.
Here the battery and m-unit. Btw, the starter relay sits underneath the tank mount bracket.

All wires grouped by power, ground and in- and outputs

Just need to shorten them and hook up to m-unit.
I should be done before weekend.
