fuck yeh. i've only ever ridden an rgv250 and that has totally stuck with me...the smell of premix, the blue smoke, *ring ding ding ding*...i'm totally getting a stroker next. then i'll fighter the shit out of it!
Not sure what exactly is up, but it's not good news.
Got a message from my parts buyer who said the special order Marchesini wheels require a 50% deposit, which they didn't send. So, the wheels were never ordered. Evidently, the check has been sent out, but not sure when the wheels will arrive.
I really don't want this motard to take as long as the streetfighter project, so I'm trying to step up the pace. :cool-smiley-030:
Instead of trying to make as many custom parts as possible, I'm going to use a lot of OEM parts, just to get the bike built and running. After that, I can swap out some custom pieces to upgrade. There will still be plenty of one-off parts made for the engine conversion, custom fuel tank, radiator, bodywork, pipes, etc.
