Good grief. Well I'm F800 ignorant for the most part, but I've had all my bikes down to the bones doing alot the same thing 3 times now. Holler if ya need a hand beatin' her into submission or just some moral support. Looks like you get back right as school starts up again, but I should be relatively free for the first couple of weeks in the afternoons.

Engine out, Jeff will look at it this evening for frame mod suggestions. No engine mods, it appears 5 bolts is all it needs to hold it in. So if it has to come back out, no big deal.

Here's the template for the project


I really like the way the seat looks, and the way the rear shocks mount. That's what Jeff is going to work out.

Fantastic! Frame shape is really similar to that, looks like a great starting point. Late 40s-early 50s BMWs are so nice looking.

Some trucks are built to look good and you cant really enjoy what you built it for. Other trucks are built with skill in forethought and enjoyed!


That shot makes me miss my old truck while at the same time I don't want to tinker with it anymore!






Hey that toyota wasn't sticking its backside in my face when I started typing this ... Don't get me wrong ... Toyota's are the best in the mud!
