gas grill is still here if anyone wants it

been pretty busy with other things recently but im planning on picking it back up soon. got the frame all detabbed and getting ready to hoop it and then off to pc

ordered some works shocks for the rear.

got the forks at motorcycles unlimited getting some racetech emulators.

working on a updated twin rotor setup for the front as opposed the old single piston setup.

Long story short a lot of my funds have been appropriated by the misses. But I still find little things to do here and there. Ill post some pics of where it's at right now soon enough. I'm biting at the bit to get this thing done its just taking longer than I had anticipated.

Ok so the bike was sitting for a looong time and it was looking like it was just going to lie torn apart in the garage until j finally got off my and started working on it. I wiah it could have mofe detailed than this but the pictures sum up some of the work that was done.

It came out as I envisioned and I learned so much from this build. If I were to do it again someday theres soo much I wohld do different, but thats how we learn. The pictures show none of the countless hours trying to figure out and filing, grinding, testing, fitting, refitting, and then finding it doesnt work but here they go!
