Thank you so much for the generous offer. In the past, I will just get into my car and drive to your location. However, I have to pace myself this time, and I really have to focus on this project first before putting myself even deeper.

Once again !! THANK YOU.

CT is also the state that they don't give out title for older cars/bikes so that makes life much easier sometimes.

That's an awesome idea ..... but only problem is I have the /5 SWB which has only a bar connecting the sub-frame

You're doing a good job.

Since the original frame is trash. Take the data plate off the head stock before you throw it away. Souvenir.
Yes, I will say it's a fair deal considering someone painted it black and it took me about a hour to make it looks like aluminum again.
