it's baaaaaaaaaaaack



pics wouldn't do it justice, since there was no external work to be done. but the ride... yup i'm talkin about the snot rocket.

alls i can say is, one man's resurrection is another man's molliere.

gus, so far, the snot rocket rocks. pulls smooth, sounds great... like you said in another post, the bike is like a pissed off jack russel terrier.

thanx for the work you put into this baby. its another rolling testament to your work...

and eric, dude, thanx for chuck wagoning this asian out to pick up the bike. couldn't have gotten there without you.

Congrats on getting the snot rocket back in order!

I'm pretty slow and don't mind it, so have no fear... you'll probably surpass me quickly.

The trick is to start slow and smooth making an effort to be smooth and before you know it the new riders will be calling you fast.

The trouble is pushing it to soon and scaring your self it takes more time to regain you confidence.

So I've been told I'm just the mechanic.
