yea at first took me a good week to get use to not having front brakes. but now im not sure if i really want to buy the front brakes anymore. lets just say i got it for cheap. im asian so we deal our off and when you pull out cash people usually agree. hahaha. im also looking for another vlx, vstar 650, or yamaha xs650 to build also.
