38 posts in this topic

Got some what of a roller. Got the triple tree back on and the swing arm back on. Need to rummage through my parts boxes and find all the proper bushing and what not for the wheels. And get the proper bolts for the shocks. And then see if the tires hold air. But here it is as of now c6553f5cdfc35ba97b9c385fcdf70470.jpg

I might do a VI kit later on. Looks cool.

didn't see this till now.  and Thanks,  it is well built too.  They are made to order but he was quick on getting it made and shipped.  I ordered it on a Thursday or a Friday and had it in my hands in about 2 weeks.  Coming UPS it took 5 days with a weekend in there so it took a little bit longer.

Well thanks to my lovely car my next $400 for bike parts will be going to pay off stupid car parts. So it looks like it will be awhile before I get anything updated on this build.

Well finally got to actually work on the bike. Got a set of risers with a set of temporary bars on. And got a kick stand on. Had to get a broken bolt out of the frame so I could get in the hardware installed. But for the first time since I have owned the bike it is not being held up by blocks or sitting on the stand. Also my wife got me a tank for the bike.

I am missing some bushings for the rear wheel that is my next thing to look for. And need I get some bolts for the shocks. After that I will have a good roller.
