Yep, I agree with that. The GL took so long for same reason, too much other life stuff and me screwing the paint up a few times and stripping it all off and redoing until it was right, or as close to right as I can get painting out in the yard LOL. This should be a keeper when you get her all done.

So...... We have a new motor. It supposedly runs. We shall see. I have three more to steal shit off of if doesn't. Anyhow, I've been wasting a shit load of gas and wire filling gaps to mold the frame. You know, like them rad 60s scoots.

Nice mike, I gotta do the same as soon as I get stateside. My chop has lots of little imperfections that need to be filled and ground down.   I'm not looking forward to the 15 hrs I need to spend on it...
Well I tried but I can't run no more
