The maiden voyage was about 1 week before we were planning to head to the hills of KY for some hooliganism.  The plan was to make this bike to handle anything thrown at it dirt, gravel, etc.

Spent time tidying up loose ends. The petcock on the green/black tank was leaking and there aren't rebuild kits.  Instead of spending $100 for a NOS petcock, I bought a reproduction for my backup tank.  Also, since the bike is raised 1.5", the kickstand wouldn't reach.  So instead of riding around with a 2x4 zip tied to the kickstand, I lengthened the stock one.











Repainted the side covers...professional looking job, I know ;D





Here we are with the different tank ready to ride and tune:







Well...the smurf motor had different plans.


There are a lot of things that could have caused the distruction below but we all blame our prospect Lil' p  and his hammer trying to get the kickstarter on.  Thus resulting in this:








Everything on the kickstarter shaft came off and ended up in the oil pan.  Also dropped a shift fork.


So...yeah.  F blue motors!! and lil' p







Stay tuned...

I think the blue motor makes it sound better.
