Thanks Brad. I posted the transmission spreadsheet that we talked about in the 1 800 cafe help.
I still got a cup of rust leftover from that pic if you need it.

I may try to find someone to split the deal with when I buy it.
My phone better be one of the first ones to ring ;) :P

Looking great Clem! Good to talk with you yesterday as well. Keep it up, and like I said on the phone; if you need anything for the bike, just shoot me a call.

Chris, Ive got a buddy that digs bikes but never pulled the trigger on one yet. If he doesn't bite, I'm calling you man!

Thanks John, I'm still tripping on your bike. It's bad dude. I really think that there are engineers in Austria at the KTM factory turning out those trick orange parts for you as we speak.

Same here Mike. I think that I remember shaking your hand now last year when I was dropping off the jerky at the tent. I booked a room today for Barber so I'll be there for sure this year but not sure what I'll be riding. I'll be looking for DTT name tags or dudes with moonshine hangovers! Haha

Alright. I got the cases buttoned up. I used the old rusty bolts for a real hipster retro look...not really, Im going to replace them slowly one at a time and put lock washers on the as per MD from PA so that the engine does bust open when it's screaming down the road. I straightend out a couple of bent fins and painted the cylinders but didnt take pics of that yet.

Well I received confirmation yesterday that the JL pipes won't fit my bike with the mono shock linkage. Bummer but at least now I won't get flogged by Von over them. I'm kind of interested in rolling my own but really don't know where to start with dimensions. Any one chime in here please. I'll be surfing the net doing research.
