Got home from Todd's wedding in New Orleans about 2:30AM on Monday and started working on my bike yesterday. Made some pretty decent progress last night and thanks to Hunter and Rob I was able to get the motor in the new frame last night and even got the rear wheel set up. Tonight I'll do the front end and it'll be a roller. Might do the rear brake stay tonight so I can be done with all the wheel/brake stuff. Had to get a bunch of new motor mount bolts last night because they're all too long when you change frames. I still need a chromed octagon or skinny horseshoe oil tank and I'm probably gonna go with an electronic ignition to get rid of a bunch of the stock wiring. I also have to figure out how to wire the electric start because I've never wired a bike from the ground up with e-start before. Anyway, its coming along. Should be spending lots of time at the garage over the next few weeks.

Fender and sissy done. Gonna get Departure to punch out my rotor and sprocket to fit the new wheel then the rear will be wrapped up. On to the oil tank this week and I foresee this giving the most trouble. Also this week Kurt and Todd are starting their builds so im expecting late nights at the Double E.

Steamrolling through this project, only two days in and shes a roller. All the heavy lifting is out of the way nows its time to start the fun stuff. My new rear does not have a tire yet so the old mag is filling in for now. Also longer fork tubes will be in the mix soon.

Busted two pieces of shit trying to steal my girls bike last night from in front of the house. The dog woke me up barking so I went to check it out and saw a guy trying to push her bike down the street but the steering lock was on. He had already broken the handguard that a chain was locked to but he couldn't push it in a straight line so he left to get a truck and a friend. When they came back in their Dodge Durango I rolled outside with an AK47 and cocked it so they could hear and started yelling for them to get on the ground. One ran and the other hid behind the Durango so I walked over with the gun on him and he eventually ran too. Cops came and I know nothing will happen to them but it felt good scaring the shit out of them. They ended up leaving their car and their boy came and got it. I made sure he knew who I was and I know who he is and where he lives and made it clear we don't want anymore problems. Just a word to the wise, don't be lazy and not lock your shit up if its in plain sight and if you have a dog treat her nice because she may save you a lot of headaches one day.

Out to White Stone, VA for work on Friday. Awesome ride out 33 over a couple of cool bridges and through some neat little towns. Rode the Shenandoah 500 on Saturday with no major foul ups except a roadside clutch bleeding and a few missed turns. The shitty weather chased us out late saturday night and I ended up going to a Britsh show and swap in Manassas with my girl on Sunday. Pretty good weekend all in all.
