I agree! Once I stepped back and realized that this bike will be in my family forever, it made that hurt all better.

Man thats a sexy bike. Storm troopered out. I wouldn't want to ride it for fear of it getting dirty and scratched. Jib well done thus far, can't wait to see the final product. You need to do a before and after post.

Looks good man. With that color scheme you should slap some CA CHP logos on the radiator shrouds. Instant CA legal dual sport - no one will mess with you :smirk:

LOL! Why does that make so much sense in my mind?

Just borrow that flashing blue light (in the pic background above the bike next to the "ATTENTION" sign) and mount that bad boy on the rear fender. We'll call you "Ponch".

(You may have to google that reference if you're not an old fart...........)

Yeah, and then you can share a jail cell with someone that did the exact same thing. And lo & behold, his name IS Bubba!!!

Dohh!
Before they throw you in the pokey you would have to pull out your fake badge and declare,

"By the power vested in me, I hereby release myself under my own recognizance. I'm letting me off with a just a warning, just this once."

Might work.......

Thanks dude! I am really happy with the kit as a whole. Looks good and excited to see them light up.

Got the side number plates coming in today so I'm going to take a few days off and hoping to fire her up Monday afternoon with a cold beer in my hand...

That bike just keeps looking better and better! Thanks for posting all of the progress pictures and sharing your project with us. Somewhere up above, you buddy is looking down on that bike with a huge grin on his face.

Thank you so much for the kind words man. That really meant a lot and honestly is all that I hope to accomplish in this build.

His father and I, as well as some friends, built a memorial in the Mud Hills of Ocotillo and that will be this bikes first voyage. Seems only fitting...


On another note, fuel, boots and oil are here and going in the bike today. Crossing everything that she fires right up...

Well.

I got it outside... Kicked my ass off for a solid 30 minutes and rolled it back inside.

Not sure why she didn't want to fire up today but if anyone has any suggestions, I won't disregard them. I am planning on checking spark tomorrow and also taking the oil that was put in today back out because of all the powder coat and such.

Does anyone know the stock settings for air/fuel screw and for the idle knob?

Anyways, besides her being a little juto to start, she does sure look pretty. Finally got the rest of the plastics in and installed. Hope you all enjoy.
