thanks. I owe alot to all the local shops for hooking me up with all the take off parts, and letting me dig through all the piles of used stuff. had a blast building it,... tore the engine down to the sludge trap, honed it out, new bearings and rings and put it back together, slapped a boyer on it and it fired first kick. suprisingly there arent any leaks yet. haha

haha, yea... Had a buddy make me a sticker that says :Deficate custom cycles.

I wanted people to ask me at shows who Deficate custom cycles is? So I can tell em its me cause I build shit. its soon to come off cause it really doesnt fit in with the bike. haha.

you're gonna love it... if you can find one, try to get your hands on one of the 43 tooth sprocket/drums for the back. it will be much nicer above 50 mph

The bike looks great and man that is cheap. It reminds me of my buddy Billy's bike who is also from Michigan I think there must be something in the water around here. Again great looking bike. JEFF

Nice bike! Where did u get the rear tire from? The only ones I have found like that with the whitewall and tread have been front tires.

Glad I held off until I read this. I see too many want to avoid splitting the cases to get to the sludge trap. Glad to see you did a correct rebuild on it.

Bike looks great. Any pics from the build?
