Awesome build! I'm looking forward to the next installment.

You do some amazing stuff on that pd, should be pretty interesting once you get this figured out.

Did you ever come up with a fix for the jacking?

Objection noted.

Over-ruled, but noted.

Hi guys, thanks for remembering... I was so glad to get this back from the first builder, and now I am just sitting on it myself... but I have been SO BUSY playing with these new toys, that actual work is taking seat in the way back.



But it would have been the shiznit to bring to the RA trials last weekend.

Hopefully some work done soon. Life's crazy. So many bikes, so little time.

Clean is vastly overrated.

I thought of this thread this weekend, while lending moral support to John Hoffman while he did a trailside points adjustment on his R90/5 dirtbike.

He couldn't make the RA rally last weekend, but if you want to see his handiwork, I can put you in touch.

He rides the hell out of the thing, too.

I was wrong, it's an R75/6 engine. I'm pretty sure the frame started life as a /5 though.

Picture from this past weekend, from the Hancock thread (not mine):

WHo has time?

I just got it back in my barn after a few months of waiting for a welder friend of mine to work on it, then he ended up moving his shop. :-/

A couple beers and a bunch of readin in these awesome airhead build threads has me walking around the garage barefoot, brainstorming ideas and trying for all I'm worth to avoid looking up bikes to start building off of...

In the meantime I'll just knock the dust off of my welder and...

I was told I wasnt allowed any more horses two hours into Day 1

I want to work on this really bad, but its the fourth project in line that is on fire in my pocket.

I'm still paying into some Safari bills... explained in the other thread, sortof.

It sits, and mocks me from behind the XT.
