Update: 5/15/12

Been trying to get this thing running before its final tear down and have run into issues with the wiring. Ive been looking into simplifying  everything but i got this feeling like im missing something. For example, the wiring diagram for this bike displays a 'changing' relay and switch. I was assuming all i would need would be the battery, ignition switch, starter magnetic switch,rectifier, cdi unit, and coils to get this running.

Any input would be fantastic, thanks!

Finally got around to hearing it run and damn, a lot louder than I had expected lol. Changed a few small details since last time and currently working on shortening the pull cable. Still got registration to go through and soon after, the awaited test drive!

Registration was a hassle but finally got a plate! Went ahead and welded up a license plate frame for it and figured out some wiring. Took it for a test ride and found only the right cylinder was firing. Apparently I hadn't cleaned the carbs as well as I thought haha. Backfiring like a mofo and idle is way off. But thats details im taking care of tomorrow  before I take it on the road for the first time...fingers crossed.

Bad ass bike man! Really diggin the raked out front end and the way you switched up the back end of the frame.

Wish more people down here in North Carolina were buildin bikes like this, nothin but sport bikes.

Really digging the rake. I would like to know how he went about raking that frame?
