Go Baby, GO!

FINALLY! I got some time to get into the garage. Beautiful newly powder coated frame and all the stuff I need to get this project on the way. I just need to pull the trigger on a bunch of stuff that Mark Apland has set aside for me.

This project finally drew first blood. I put a pretty deep hole in my hand today. for some reason it didn't hurt at all after the initial poke. just looked down and the surgical glove I wear to work started to fill with blood...a lot of blood. Pulled off the glove and I had a bunch of sub dermal fat sticking out of the hole that the spring pulled into my hand. Cool.

After the bood drama finished I got the chrome center stand on as well as the side stand, the Manx style PCV breather tank and the alloy swing arm. Pics coming soon.

At last!

Great! My frame has finally returned from the powder coater. I was told at first that it would be a few days. It ended up taking him 2 tries and 3 weeks to get it right. It's ok though, he's a pretty nice guy who's just learning the trade. I'll use him again because the frame looks GREAT! I'm pretty busy for the holidays so work won't commence until the the new year.
Happy holidays!
