I'm traveling the road you just got to the end of oh so successfully. She's beautiful! ride her safe and for many, many years. All the cost, frustration and time is worth it. I've built a few bikes over the years and there ain't nothing like riding down the road knowing every nut, bolt, washer in your bike and knowing YOU put it there!

great job!

Warren, it never quite ends, you'll always be doing something or looking for a part or thinking about it. In the end it's worth every dime spent, every hour wrenching, every moment of frustration on that day you take her out for her first ride. I just took mine for a virgin ride a week ago and I'm STILL grinning!

this is pretty much what I'm starting with. I was after mine for over 10 years before the guy let it go. now I'm the proud new owner. right now I'm in the mock up stage. I'll have more time come winter to get serious work done on her. panfreak youve done a great job on your bike. I hope mine turns out as nice. regards, radar
