i'd give it a 9. lost the front pipe stud in the head, chain nicked the rear brake line and a pin fell out of the bendix throwout linkage.
replaced the stud with a locktighted bolt, replaced and rerouted the rear hard line and put a cotter pin in the bendix.
the rear shocks feel like they could stand replacing too but all in all it turned out to be a very solid bike. the mid controls with the drag bars puts me in a jockey riding position which for me is great for in town manueverability but it kinda gets my lower back on the hiway for long distances.

very cool bill, i really like it. any plans paint wise?
i'm not real good at picking out colors. i kinda like the red & gold on the tank so i'm thinking of painting the rear fender a high gloss black with red side panels and a gold stripe at the parting line.
