Haha! It's only about 100 linear lbs.

Cannot wait to see this beast together. I hope it's going to run on injection and not a carb.. that would be a let down!!! haha.
I was going to run injection but I think in order to make it "clean" in going to use a carb.

I think he bought the whole unit at Walmart. My sister's husband's brother's daughter's niece said that had 'em on BlackFriday deal for $37.

I was at a bar once and a guy said "that girl you're with looks like my wife." The story gets fuzzy until I woke up in the gutter bleeding.

I had my chopped 46 chevy coupe at a show once and a sweet little old grandma walked up and peered in the back quarter window at the seat and headliner. Then said "yup, thats what I remember them looking like". I spewed milkshake out of my nose.

Wasn't on chopperswapper, was it?

Honestly, the biggest compliment I could ever receive was not that something I did was good, but that it inspired someone else to try harder.

I made an internal throttle this weekend, but I don't know if I love it.

In the mean time, here are some allen nuts that I spiffed up a bit.

It's just a remake of a biker's choice one with tighter tolerances and made from SS so I can weld it to my bars.

It's really nothing special.

A bit modest, I'm sure it's a work of art?

And really, your build are inspiring to not get blocked with basic barriers and keep "building the dream"... as it were.
