Oh no..the knuck is the build that I am funding going to be a fairly stock build..bullneck frame offset springer original tanks/speedo etc.. This build is the donation build that gets sold to support the class. Ironheads are cool and we take what we can get for free so it's all cool. Still may work a deal with SPS and possibly S&S for a second custom build.

Hey Teach,

Caught the article the other day when scanning the rags, congrats again. From what I read, they had some favorable stuff to say about the program you've built. It's great that this program is actually doing something that we wish would've been offered in our day, and yet still provides the students with invaluable experience.

Down the road years from now, each one of these kids will never forget what you and the program have done for them. Mad props brotha.

Late.

I'll donate a SUPER SONIC unmachined air cleaner or a different carb cover from my website that's unmachined. Unmachined so the kids will learn how to drill, tap, countersink, deburr and polish. PM me if you need anything.
