Had a fuck all day today. Got the bike on the road and another fucking coil gave out. These aftermarket jobies just suck donkey tits. Bike really moves smooth when both cylinders are in full effect. I don't get it this is the second coil i have had go bad. At first it was just intermittently firing then hardly at all. Switched to my other coil to ensure this is the issue. yep cylinder fires strong with other coil. shit nuggets. The thing is it sparks just not well enough to ignite the cylinder with the crap coil. On another note i was out riding when it was still going ok and got a bee up my shirt stung me 3 times. i pulled over like  FUUUCK bike stalled. I looked down my GD kicker fell off somewhere.. Great... so i try to bump start it for like 20 min (doesn't work that well with only 1 good cylinder.) Get home only to find my lisence plate fell off somewhere GEEBUS . Going over some crap tightening em up ..

wow, that just sucks man... I've got aftermarket el-cheapo coils too but so far they haven't let me down. I lost my plate on an early tune up test ride also, so I feel your pain... I had a to do list for the bike as I was building it up and "tighten and loctite freakin' everything" was an actual item on the list... and I still lost my plate! good luck getting her back together!

Beautiful bike! Love the color too!

Question for you; where did you have the decals made?

Thanks Man i appreciate that. I am flogging the crap out of it daily right now. She likes to go more and more each day. It's a real blast to tool around on. Still needs a few loose ends but i am gonna hold off for the season will get new tires this winter and prob some rear sets. Decals were custom made by Sonreir He is a member on DTT in the infamous cb360 crew. <--JK there is no such crew but in my mind there is. Anyhow yeah he did exactly what i asked him too. I couldn't source cream decals anywhere.

Thanks guys. I will be working on getting it a little more refined over the winter. I have another frame that i plan on building it up again on with some welded plates for rear sets. (that frame is actually titled .. shhhh) I also would like to get a micro speedo, Needs some new tires and possibly relace the rims too. I also need to clean up the wiring.  I wanted to get it riding well before going all out. I like riding it so much i figure it's time to go all in. I have 2 spare engines for parts so this is a bike i plan on owning for a long time. I havent done any work on it some time. Love me a 350 it's got alot of pep for a lil motor. People just love the bike too which is rewarding when you work hard on something. Keep up the good work guys

I have these that Im not gonna use if you or anyone want them. Got them from DCC. I think they were about 50 ea. I never installed them, decided to go with a GPS speedo and its twin tach from speed moto.

Your bike is gorgeous. Has it ever been nominated for bike of the month? I think it could be a contender.

I love the custom seat! Ever since seeing a DCC video with Herm making one, I've wanted to try it. What upholster did you go to? As a fellow Clevelander, I might be able to give them a little business when the time is right.

Hey thanks man but i don't think it is near that level of machine at this point. I love it though. It was a fun thing to do for me and i am still working on it to get it running tip top. You should definately come out riding with us this next year. I used an upholsterer from kent called http://candjmotorsports.com/  They did it quick and it turned out perfect for like 100 bux. it really worked out. It was really hard to get that seat to work man. Took me 2 tries but it's worth it to have that custom slim look. I posted up on here some of my trials and tribulations making that damn thing. Anyhow thanks for the compliment gives me some incentive to get it going hard this summer.
