End of week four

Well another week screamed by. I spent it working and putting the final touches on the rolling chassis. The kickstand went on, and after a little coaxing, worked. I took it off the lift, and got to sit on JUST the bike for the first time. Man, I am in love. This thing is low and mean, and ready to go. I rolled it out into the sun this morning for a couple quick photos.

It is getting my blood boiling. I have been thinking about paint and color lately. Despite some warning against what I wanna do, I think I am going to go for it. I am not going to say anything about it, you will just have to see it here. I think it is going to look grand.

Today I had to grind down the bungs on the oil tank, so it would sit more flush with the frame. I caught a 4.7 MB quicktime video of the sparks flying. (sorry dial-up people!) 4.7 MB video

I have a couple custom things I wanna make for the bike, and after that it is going to sit in my garage until I can come up with some $duckets$ for the color. Man am I excited.

oh man, forget your blood. Mine is a boiling. Forget what I said about not owning a bike anymore, I'm thinking this could be the project for me. Yep and it's all your fault.

Looking awesome Zaq!!!

Man, I want to do this! How many hours do you figure that you will have into it by the time you are done?

I'm thinking yellow with just a little red? :)

Hours? Shit, probably near 200-300. I think the wiring is gonna snag me. I think I can build it up in a couple days. The wiring is going to take some time.
