That's odd.  I always rip CD's to my PC so I can listen to them while I work.  Still a great way to get music onto a phone or other device so I can listen when there's no internet connection.  Streaming is so last year.....

There were all sorts of 'fair use' issues so they removed it after a year or so (maybe less, I forget) . The workaround was use a Sharpie to make a black band around outer rim of CD maybe 1/16" in from edge. They did take an unemployed single mother to court and have her fined the maximum ($250.000) for posting on Spotify or something. 'Just to set an example'

Well, many corporations seem to be evil these days.  Greed has completely taken over.

I have spent the last month preparing for and executing moving the Jadus workshop.  God what a mission and a load of stress.  Not something to be repeated.  Now I have a much more motorcycle friendly space and in an industrial area rather than residential - so I won't need to piss neighbors off any longer.

Anyway, before I packed up everything I did some final blasting and powder coating and came up with this...  The parts look pretty sweet.  Still deciding if I will use the blasted finish or go with brushed or even something a little more 'distressed'.  Again, I want the bike to look raggidy  :D

Nah the blasted and/or distressed look doesn't really fit with the clean look of the rest of the work you've done. I'd go ahead and powder those parts too. Maybe bring in a matte or satin powder to balance off the gloss black.

For me, that is "raggedy" enough. Plus you can polish/re-paint later if you change your mind.

I'll guess I'll see how it all looks together when it finally starts coming together.

A final message from Chris before he sends the head - saying he is done and everything is assembled - with the new cam, new bearings, new valves, guides, stem seals, springs retainers and lash caps (for the Ti valves).  Can't wait to see it in person.  Should receive it next week  ;D
