thats funny. how about this, i take it out and have it enameled for real?? nice thing is, if he wants to weld braces to it, a rag with some thinner will take it right off!

never ask me to weld anything that has to look nice. i was always under the assumption anyone can be a decent welder as long as they have a good grinder. doh!


its always easier to weld on shit after you paint, right??


front end is on and rebuilt. rearsets set. frame touched up, steerin stab bolted.



the cyls should be in on tuesday. the brake will hopefully be back in the next week. one night to finish the motor, and another day for front wheel setup and spacer making. we cleaned up an old seat, thanks again scott wall, your body work lives on! and the forks have been rebuilt. the brake has been pulled apart and cleaned and reassembled. its gettin there! we should be done for vir.

woohoo!

If I didn't know better I'd swear that's a couple of Todd Henning Piston boxes. Right next to the Megacycle cam.

And you know you're going to be wondering where the hell you put your hammer. It was right here...

Damned, you fgured it out. I thought if honda could make crank weights and frames from wood, I could make a cam! I knew some smart ass was going to comment on that. Hey craig, so, have you decided if youre going to make it down for any wera events. Come on, were all slow....:D

And those are crappy henning pistons, they are hrc/cyb/yosh pistons. Learn your wrappers!
