Nice job, it's amazing to see the before pic and what you made out of it. Looks great and the paint is sharp. Rich does some killer work.

Nice bike man, and here I thought all you did around here was make funny ass remarks. You can actually build something.

she is a bit sassy. dropped a routt 750 kit into it and did some valve train lightening. it's got some nice low end grunt now. haven't really beaten on it yet, but i can't wait to see what she's got.

i'll take some other pics and post 'em up.

thanks everyone for the kind words!

primary:



left strut:



right strut and plate bracket:



what appears to be a chain tensioner is merely a big honkin frame gusset to shore up this tired old hard tail, now if only i could make prettier welds...
