You gotta paint and or cover the fenders with stickers too.

Not many builds deserve a 'rad', but this one does.  Rad.
Stickerbomb FTW

Sometimes sticker bombs suck, not this time. That looks awesome.
Thanks fellas!

I don't think I'm going to, it's just temporary until I get the Honda tank fixed and clear coated.

Next up, 2WD conversion?

Only if it's a hydraulic 2WD conversion.  8)

And yes, the stickerbomb is rad... that might be the way forward on my Turbo coming to think of it.

Got a little time to work on the bike today. I'm t minus 30 days to have this stupid thing "cobbled together enough for hot laps at mid Ohio"

I finally figured out the reason I wasn't getting spark. After a bit of digging I realised that the pickup leads had been smashed and there were bare wires shorting out. I had chased my tail on this stupid thing only to find out that is was a stupid oversight on my part all along. Oh well, sure won't be my last.

Shitty but glad you found it. something like that can drive you nuts.  looks like the wire I found chewed by the squirrel in the house. I touched it to look closer and poof, there was a fire ball and the breaker blew. could have burned the house down.

Sometimes, after shooting myself in the foot (again), I mutter to myself "put the bullet back in your pocket, Barney."

Stopped by the local muffler shop and had them flare a piece of stainless exhaust pipe to build my mid pipe. Still need to finish tig welding it up, but should do the trick.


Also, now that I have spark, I put fuel to it, and she runs. Not gonna lie, hearing that thing fire up was what I needed to get the wind back in my sails.
