Well here it is, I've benn on the HAMB for over a year now and dont have that many posts to my name. I just read a learn as much as I can, that may be par for the course here as well. I cant begin to tell you how much I have already learned since I found out this board was up and running a couple of days ago. I am about to begin a project that I know will require alot of questions asked I hope you guys can be patient. And if you need to flame my ass every once in awhile ( or all the time) for stupid questions I probably deserve it. I wil try to post pics of the bike once I get some.

Thanks guys for another grat board...Dave

Hey, Dave, welcome! I live in Carrollton, same story as you and Hard Luck. I've got a Triumph 650 motor in pieces, got a 71 softtail frame and a bunch of parts. We need to get together and pool our junk! HAH.

I work on Jap bikes, but I'm ready to get this one on the road. I've heard about Southwest, but never been in there. I'll have to stop by next week.

I bought Hellspawns bike, I do have a pic or two which I will try to post tomorrow. And I have to tell you he is great to deal with, he is completely trustworthy.
i retract that statement. He has come through but it took 3 months to ship and I dont have all of it still.

Right on. Be warned these guys will hound you for pics. I'm curious, 'cuz you're builing pretty much the same bike I am from the sound of it. How you comin'?

So, do you got any pics?

Its not really coming along at all. I mean I've sanded down the frame primed it. And assembled a rolling chasis. But Hellspawn hasnt sent the motor, tranny, tank, or anything else. So Im at a stand still. How's yours coming. If you have pics could you post them Im in need of some serious insperation.
Laterr, Dave
