Thank you both for the nomination!!!  Very honored and i accept!

Quick baskstory on the bike.  I got it about 3 years back from an rv park in the middle of arizona.  Bike had been sitting in the sun for quite some time and was a roller with a motor sitting in it.  Fired the back and then it sat until November of last year.  I originally was going to just go through the top end and strip everything off of it and make it look good.  When i was looking for inspiration, i came across old photos and information on Kaz Yoshima and his Z1 beater 400's he used to campaign. 

From that I changed course and decided a wanted an alloy swingarm and full racetech suspension.  Then after getting a swingarm and shocks in motion from Framecrafters, I thought that i can have this bike with a stock motor.  Looking at how Kaz setup his 400's, i went to a 466 cc big bore, ligthened the crank, shot peened the rods, stage 2 ported head, webco 303 cam, bored stock carbs and beefed up the clutch. 

The bike is "street legal" with a small high output Clearwater led headlight, and a flush mounted tail lite, and a flip down license plate.  Every signal bracket and mounting tray is aluminum on the bike.  I still have to weight the bike but it should be about 330lbs full of fluids.  It's incredibly light, holds a line and rev's like crazy.  Such a fun bike.


For all of the details; here is the build thread again.  http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=74512.0

Noms closed voting will start shortly - sorry for the delays!
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."
