    not till i wire it. im dragging my feet. everything is assembled, and my fuel line is run, just gotta weld some tabs on my oil bag/electronics box and stuff some shit in there. im gonna be outta town this week, and my dad said he's gonna work on it a bit since he's off work for the week. got a feeling its gonna fire when i get back. after thats its just jetting (great...) and learning to ride the thing lol.

    atothep, screw you. i was hoping ppl forgot about my bike, that way i could just pop in with one update and whore it out with some pics. *sigh* there goes that idea. lol. na ive just been lazy with pics and ive been workin on my 125, s10 and 88 stang. winter with a motorcycle thats almost done, but cant ride when it is = little motivation. but ill get on it just for yall. maybe some inspiration for chris.

    There are so many dutch beers that actually taste great, yet somehow only the crappy ones make it abroad.

    Cheers mate :laugh:

    not really an update but more of a tease. for you and me.
    dads been workin on gettin the thing to fire, but ere having carb issues. i gotta get new needles. great. and i still gotta weld some tabs for the electronic bix, tank, and tool bag. also picked up a fender not sure if im gonna use it or not, anyway. on with the pics.

    kinda messy right now sorry for the shitty pics, flourescent lighting + bloggie = no-no. im actually gonna leave the tank raw and just clear coat it. not sure if i like the stickered alternator cover. might just keep it cuz im lazy.:D

    carb work awesome...

    REPRESENT!!!!!

    cotta channel the frame support a bit. then itll sit straight and low. instead of sideways and cocked. lol
    [​IMG]

    new stuff. might not use the fender. if i did, it would be raw metal. and the bag is gonna be mounted on the rear legs. already made the bracket template.
    [​IMG]

    thats it for now. i said no more fullsize pics till its done didnt i?

    :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
