That would be awesome!  Thank you.  It'll probably be a couple weeks, I have to finish the engine before I really get assembling.

Well, the bottom end is together, the valves are cleaned and lapped with new seals.  The cylinders are out getting bored, so I am playing a waiting game on prepping things for assembly.  Can't really get started until the engine is together and in the frame.

Well hopefully some pictures today.  Got the cylinders back, checked the ring gap which was perfect out of the box.  Have to degree the cam in and then I can get the motor back in the bike and actually start assembly.

Got some assembly done today.  Still a bit to go, only problem so far is the kickstand bolt snapped.

That is amazing! Great work and great looking ride. Love the details like the custom made rear led light. Great suspension work in the rear. Looking forward to seeing the end game!

I was really happy with the color just seeing it on the bare frame, but seeing it in the sun as it goes together I'm even happier.

A slight update, the wiring is going in.  Chassis is wired, all the loose wires are for the EFI.  Once I finish wiring it all the wires will be wrapped in the fancy electrical tape that has no adhesive.
