You just canít use polyester resin with carbon. Well you can, but the working time is so short. Sounds like you used polyester or even vinyl ester epoxy. To much shrinkage, which is never a good thing. 😂  That stuff is made for boats. A couple of extra lbs doesnít matter on a 1000  lb hull. Which is why they use gel coat and a ton of resin to keep if from distorting. And stay away from surfboard resin. Most is non-blushing which translates to Pain-In-The-Ass.

I bet that's what I used. I was 16 years old so I think it was a cost/availability issue that I just didn't understand or care to learn at the time.  Maybe I'll take a crack at it again.  And those are fantastic shots of all of the "sisters" :)

Still not done but when are we ever really finished.

I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

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

Fantastic work! Time frame is not at all unreasonable. I really like the overall style and finish. Sure miss my '73 Yammie... (my mom sold it for peanuts while I was in boot camp)

It's a fun bike.  The rephase gives it a nice sound, and the EFI works really well and will get better as I ride more with a laptop. 

Don't you hate parents getting rid of something just because you aren't there?

I did it myself.  It needed new rods, so I took it apart, reassembled, trued, and had a coworker tig it for me.  The cam I rephased myself as well.  I did it for the sound and to see if I could.  I couldn't have afforded to send it out to be done.
