Still working on it, I promise. Keeping the bike at work so we can do the wiring and I have more access to random bits of metal and stuff. Forgot to take pictures but yesterday I cut out a plate to go under the seat where I will mount the R/R and the ignition unit. Got some parts in the mail that should be here next week.

Slowly been chipping away at it. Matt and I usually stay for a while after work each day and get a little something done. I had to buy a helicoil kit for one of the carb bowl screws as it stripped out. I cut out an aluminum plate to go under the seat and we mounted all of the electrical components to it. On top are panel mount fuse holders and the R/R, ignition unit and starter solenoid are underneath. I think that when we left today the wires were all run and switches installed as well.

So this may slow things down. My other hobby is roller derby and I got hurt at practice Sunday night. Still in the hospital at the moment. Donít have much else to do so I thought I would update my build thread.

Got hurt?  That looks like the understatement of the week...

John, did you need surgery or could they set it for you without? That will decide how long it will take to get better.  You now can out your xray as your avatar too and join the broken leg club LOL

12 weeks is better than 8 months, hope it all goes well. I had external fixation and the 3 plates 27 screws and a new hip and I back to walking with no cane and I might actually get to down hill ski next winter.  Ill never run again but I can ride and wrench so Im good.  Youll be fine.  Cheers

There are a lot more womenís teams than menís. My wife has been playing for almost six years. I got involved as a referee for her team. Last year when I got the chance to skate with a menís team I went for it.
