WidowMaker is done!!

Well she is done now..had a few delays with my work travel and I cant ride it cuz it snowed last night. But i though I would post up some photo's. I will have a booth at the swap meet/bike show at Mchenry fairgrounds on the 19th of the month. While I am there I will put it and the turbo bike in the bike show if anyone wants to come see it.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.
