thanks fellers.
i cant (and wont) take all the credit.
i had alot of friends help me with parts,locating parts,etc.
my buddy Rob has been helping alot with the mechanicals of the bike as well as alot of the electrical.plus he has a "real" shop,and not a living room,which makes life a little easier.
im in love with it though.
it was well worth the wait to me.

LOL!
thanks guys.
it's down right now. the stator/rotor is really bad in it. my electrical is going to crap.
i got to get the alternator fixed. the alternator is weak,so the mity max isnt doing any help with the lights,let alone making the bike even run decent right now.
looks like i got some work ahead of me.
but i still love the hell out of it.
thanks guys,i appreciate it.
Mr. Rogers,
yours is looking good! im jealous of all those nice powder coated pieces!
