Where in Ohio are you? if any where close to Columbus and you are on facebook, I recommend joining the Columbus Area Vintage Motorcycle Group.

I assume that if you are starting from a frame and an engine on an old brit 500cc twin that you know what you are doing.

Tell me about the X75 Hurricane in your avitar.

Yes it is a Phil Little kit. It fit great. You need to remove all of the stock seat mounts, so it would be hard to go back. The only problem was one of the petcocks was plunged and there is no reserve. I had mine done in the Orange gel coat and the fender from his other kit. He sent me the paint code for the orange so I could paint the other parts. It is on his Web site.
