Thanks for directing me to this thread sir. Love the pics. The frame is cool. Love the concept. Nice work keep it up.
always a hint of danger. Like a skanky chick at a bar. You know the diseases she has will kill you, but you still want to ride the shit out of her.

started work on a spare engine, im putting a 650 top end on the 550 , this'll give me a good deal more bhp, had to nibble out some excess metal to get the 650 barrels in, all done now and striped and cleans, honing the barrels and gonna do a mild port and polish to the head, though waiting on some flatslides before i get into that
