Thank you for the compliment. The bike looks great.o_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_O
Thanks Karen!! My dad and I realized that every bike in the garage has one of your seats on it, I don’t think I gave you enough credit/appreciation for them.

Thanks for the badge too! That will probably go on early next week. I need to stop and grab a rivet gun and I want to take it to work to put a number on it

Got the engine degreased/ cleaned it up. Also ran it last night and it runs great. Put it on the bike today, I need to make some linkage for it tomorrow hopefully.

I never left the house today, -50 wind chill today had me stuck inside. Hopefully tomorrow it’s okay enough to get outside to make some brackets for the clutch cover. Hopefully I get some parts in and I get to make the brackets tomorrow so I can get the bike done to go to the pinstriper.

Thanks!!
This bike came out awesome, looks great!
Thankyou! I cant wait to get it pinstriped, he has done great work for me before
Cool! I’m diggin the White Walls and black paint.
Thanks! I love that look too, a pretty popular look around me
I like this one a lot. Another great job!
Thanks Dave! I want to try and do more to these builds, id love to be able to build a bike from scratch at some point. I need to get my work to allow me some space lol, i dont have room to work on anything indoors. Id love to be able to do the builds (or attempt to!) that most do on here, not just take a bike a part and put it back together.
Very sharp!! Nice choice using the Clinton engine.
Thanks! I was kind of hesitant but it runs great. I try to look for different engines then just use a predator every build. Last year it kinda backfired but this year it worked out i think

Thanks!!
Killer build! That tool kit does one side hinge open or screw off?
Thanks!! The tool box opens on 1 end. It has a little push button on it, you turn the end and the push button goes down
Ball park, what does powder coat cost? That looks great.
I’ve had 5 or so bikes done from the same guy now, the red scat cat I did with chrome tank was 300$, the cat eliminator I did was 220$ for the chrome on the fenders and the gold on the fork & frame. This bike was 200$ for everything black on the bike. This bike was done the next day, usually he has them done within 48 hours

I dropped it off for pinstriping today! Got the clutch cover and badge on there this weekend. I didn’t realize the picture didn’t work for the other side of the bike when I took it outside so sorry for the indoor bad picture quality.

I will have a spot at the world of wheels this year with the guy who is pinstriping it. I will be able to bring 5 bike, I’m excited about it. Will be cool to show off some of our nicer builds that we have done
