hey, rich, just something i noticed. i know on my racebike my rear inner fender rubbed when i had it just strapped across the frame like you guys did yours. your rear tire will hit it. especially when you hit the gas or a bump. you should take a look at that. most of them have to have a bump in them. i realize youve changed the subframe alot, but it looks pretty close.

Hey Joe. Yea it might. We had the math department do a little project on that one and they said baring the tire getting to much bigger we should have 1/2" or so fully compressed on the shocks. We'll see. I hope their right:)but Im guessing your on the money. So if anyone is in the saratoga area on June 9th we are having an unvaling of the 2 bikes at 2pm. come and join us! also if anyone is in Schenectady tommrow from 9-4 Modern weldingschool is having a bike show and we are going to be their. Hope to see some of you their. Hey imslow, it is tiny!! I look like a monkey humping a football on the thing. George, let me know what you want for pics of the rear brake

I found some better shots of the cable stay on the rearset in the earlier photos, but I couldn't find one of the mount at the rear of the housing. Is in a machined part on the shock bolt? And where did you come up with the cable? I'm really looking forward to seeing the bike, as I plan to visit Mid-Ohio in July.

WE machined a piece but you could use angle and flat stock and do the same thing with a bit of weld then we attached it to the shock bolt you are right. I contacted Barnet and they made the cable. They have about 1 billion applications so just give them the thredpitch and size and you are done! oh yea you will need to spring the rear and front of the cable to keep the pedle from bouncing.
We will see you in Ohio!!!!

Rich: Great bike. Are you still putting it up for display at the Saratoga Auto Muesum? I am going to be down in Rhinebeck on June 9th for the Vintage MC show. I will try to make it back by 2PM to check it out!

Great article!

Hey Pete we will be at the Saratoga Auto on the 9th of june at 2pm. Any one in the area please stop by. Our team just had a major stumble..... Our bottom end just cracked at the kick starter, a 3" piece broke off so we did somthing wrong.Thank god we have a another one (sorry Pete I have to go back on my word on giving you our spair) I have no idea what the hell happened so on sunday IM going in and trying to change it out. If anybody has any sugestons for us throw in your 2 pennies we could use it!! maybe it will buy me some sanity. Thanks

pull the motor and turn it upside down... then you can remove the lower case and fix the kickstarter........ or just remove it altogether
