Gus, when the frustration outweighs the enjoyment, its time to shift gears.

Good luck, not that you need it.

I'm pretty well along with that.

I've spent some of my money on parts(shocks) and that will about stop progress.I won't buy parts for other peoples bikes.

Mike (ceptor) is going to bring me a tank,the seat is waiting for payment and I need a few hundred bucks worth of this and that.Maybe we can get together on a list.

Oh ya and I've got about a hundred hours into it.Piecing this thing together from this pile of stuff has been alot of work.

It's mostly done but without support I'm not obligated to build a charity bike for a fella I never knew.
Where is everybody ??????

I have asked for support on this several times now.

Dave I understand life has you in Florida.and that you have time and money into this bike as well.

Dani found herself with two broken legs.

I had a heart rebuild .

and this whole project has been set to the side.

Find a way to light a fire under it.

All is well though I have no regrets or hard feelings it's just sitting in the corner waiting for us to get back at it.

I'm not upset either, I know life happens for all of us. And I hope you are making a full recovery. Stanimal will ship you the tank in the next few weeks. It looks good, but not perfect. Kinda like Ashwin's bikes, lol! A few decals will go on the sides to hide the crappy parts.



I figured this bike would not be done until this winter (when things usually slow down with you). Take care of yourself, that's the most important thing right now.
