never seen one with those wheels before, all of ours got 'boomerang' comstars

sounds like a wicked fun project, are you going big bore silly on the motor
I thought about it, but it'd be a good bit of wasted work, IMO. I'll spend most of my time on her in the Ozarks. Tight roads, lots of bends. Little chance to open her up and take advantage of increased power. Stock, they put around 95HP to the wheel. Should be more than sufficient for the type of riding I want to do.

Think I may go with this seat. May build one more a bit differently, and see how I like it on the frame.

Going to be able to get a bit of length back out of the R1 forks that I had anticipated losing. Smaller diameter pieces goes on the bottom of the cartridges to raise them up. Larger diameter screws in where the stock fork cap does. Stock fork cap screws in up top, retaining adjustability.

Bruce comes home from the pub and sees Sheila watching Gordon Ramsay's F%*#ing cooking show on the telly.
Bruce says; "What are you watching that shit for? You can't cook to save your life!."
To which Sheila replies; "So what? You watch porn movies, donít you?"

Ironically enough, Aussie Steve, they are coming from Australia.

Hey at least you took advantage of the weak Aussie dollar. Lowest since January.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

I sent all of the body work I am not using to a few chaps doing restorations.
No worries. Better there than hanging on a wall anyway ;)

I wasn't thrilled when I saw $460 after shipping was added. Bought them anyways, and bam, it pops up "You paid $329 USD."

Makes a bit more sense why I haven't been shipping much to Australia over the last couple months.

Get these suckers mounted Monday, and I'll be ready to start getting some fab work started.
