Quit posting pictures of that. I'm not buying yours and can't afford to build one.

Stop.


I mean it.

went down a size on the front from a 4.60 to a 4.10. the 4.10 has smaller lugs or knobs so i will see if it lasts as long as the 4.60.

kubiak, that is a great job and I think it would be, for me, the perfect motorcycle.

Again, excellent work.
