Well, she stalled on me about a mile out! haha (figures)  I had a wire pull out. So plugged it back in and it wasnt bad!  Only had a few minutes because the wife said she was cooking my favorite...beef pot roast!  So...I'll see about getting a vid of it out and about by the weekend...which is supposed to be very nice!  Thanks to all that had input, I'm not done, but it is drivable, which is pretty cool after having it apart for damn near 2 years.  8)

ANNNNDDD POW!  Seat.  I put it on wrong, (completely fixable, as I pulled the rear too far) but it will stay that way until the NEXT rainy day!  Nice to have some cush on the toosh.  Thanks again to my lovely wife, who is set to get this bike when done, so I can work on "her" bike! haha.  Next up is the front fender (in one of the pics) to cut and make it NOT purple....haha.  And finishing up the rear dirt guard I have been holding on to for a while.

Nice!  I did a similar lace up design on my 360.

Andoor- your 360 is amazing. Lots of detailed work in that thing. I really like it!

I posted some vids up, but I'm not sure if you can see them without going to Facebook  :-\  My computer doesn't like phone vids, so I just uploaded them from my phone. See if these work.  Let me know if it does please. The first one is my wife taking it for one little test ride around the U shaped block.  Then the second vid is of her leaving to go teach yoga...pretty sweet when she rolls up to yoga classes on this bad boy! haha.


Here's the fixed version Andoor!

Great job, thanks for the video's, but I think you just lost your bike to your wife. Guess you'll have to build you one now ;D.

Its the truth.  But she only stole it because I sold her bike last fall  ::)

I'll consider this build pretty much done.  When fully done I'll put the build in the show and shine section!  Thanks for all that have watched and participated, this was my first build and I now feel like I've got a lot more to do on the next builds!

Looks amazing! Sounds good too!

That's awesome that your wife is an avid rider.
My fiance and I are taking a course together so when I get her a bike we can ride together.

Again, excellent work!
