Funny how all the work is not reflected in the photos

Just had to drive it up a dirt pile...


I plan to ride it for a while and let the parts do their final meshing. Then I have a couple projects I want to complete. First the final drive locking device installation and two wheels (sidecar and spare) need to be swapped for correct type (this will require re-stringing a couple of hubs and rims I have laying around).

Surprises so far - how easy this thing starts! Damn, probably just cursed myself...
One of the coolest builds I have ever seen! Congrats on your progress. Have to ask.......what is that square thing on the headlight? Are you going to put a deactivated AK in the sidecar?
