For all that are/will say it cant be done, please, please, do not waste your precious delicate skin off of your finger tips by typing your bad energy.

Also, I'm up in Oregon. There's a lot of great people up here, and I know many of them.

If you need anything at all, holler! We are a resourceful bunch, I'm sure we can be of assistance.

Do you have a build thread somewhere?

I would love to see some more pics of that front end and all the other work you are doing to those bikes. I have a few 90s myself and this looks like a great idea.

Here is an update on the bikes..... Just ordered the rest of the parts minus tires, chains, and sprockets. We have all of the bikes, engines, and now are waiting for the cables, levers, lights, etc, etc. Once we get these parts in, I will take a step by step pics of the build. Give us a couple days and I will flood the thread with pics.

Wow o wow !
Lots on your plate just getting the [5! ] bikes built in a short time frame.The whole idea is nuts and that's what makes it intresting.
Best of luck to the whole expedition !
