hi, i'm mike, and mothgils put me up to this.
inspired by to much free time at my old job, i bought my first bike at the ripe old age of 36. i grew up a car guy - dad owned a carquest store - but despite owning a few cool cars along the way, i've never really worked on any of them. i figured an old honda was the best place to start, and when this popped up on craigslist i was on my way.
of course it ran like a champ, started with a push of a button, and i'd never been on a motorcycle before (had a little four wheeler experience), so it seemed like maybe i should just leave it alone for a while. but that's not all that fun, is it?
now with the help of andrew (mothgils) and another mechanic and drunk buddy who was so excited to wrench on a bike he offered to let me keep it in his garage, we're off. first thing's first, let's take some stuff off.
battery and exhaust:
where we're at now:
plan is to get rid of the tachometer, black out the fenders and motor, replace the stock handlebars with drag bars, brat out the seat, and figure it out while we go. i picked the right guys to walk me through this, so i expect to be done last week. oh, and all this while i help open a brewery.
seriously though, should be fun. more as we go.
