And lo, it will be loud as fuck.

I dig the looped oil line - but it strikes me that it's an accident waiting to happen. Do you plan to leave it hanging out like it is now?
unplug the connectors from the harness and multimeter the shit out of them

nah, I just hooked it up there quick for the time being. I still have not decided on the final location for the gauge, i'll have to come up with something.


I did manage to get it running tonight. I haven't touched the jetting yet, but its not terrible. This is the most that this engine has ran in probably the last 10-15 years or so. Good spark without touching the points, awesome oil pressure, and started right up. A little smoke, I'm not too concerned about that yet. Valves are a little noisy too.
sorry about the video quality, but you get the idea.


now its time to get back to work on the frame/seat/tank/bars/forward controls/ etc. oh boy.

WOW, that is rad. Watching this one for sure. Gotta love crazy ass builds.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
