Perhaps the flu was more serious than usual. More likely he's squirming around the backwoods somewhere on slimy single track. Or thinking up more excuses

You guys know me waaaay too well Did 40 miles Saturday. Trails were a disaster from all the downed trees and rubbish from the winter. Maintance crews havent been out yet. It was awsome. Over,under or around was the game of the day. Im all scratched and bruised. Back is killing. But loving it.

But your right I havent done anything. I have the wires ran thru the frame. Pretty much have all my wireing sub assemblies done. Just need to do the main connections to the ignition box. Add the ends and connect up in the headlight. And wire in power from the stator and ignition pickup.

Buy you know how life gets. Spring is here. Lots and lots of yard work needs to be done. I cant seem to find a spare minute lately.

But I PROMISE. Ill sneak an hour in this week just for you guys and post up some new pictures. Ill try and the the ignition panel wired up.

Bump, baby. The yard work will wait. I'd rather watch you work on the bike than ride that mower in circles.

Dude- you have a bad case of PADD- project attention defecit disorder.

(quote from ad) "Has Been used in a racing mower but for only 3 hours of ridding and hasn't damaged it at all."

Sounds like fun to me!

Gday YZ.
I've been wiring stuff to other stuff for 30 years, and I always liked the coily pig-tail look for the spaghetti you can see.
Then again, I might be a bit OCD too!
My humble opinion is it looks good.
Great bike man.

Great build! Just read through everything. Can't wait to see a video of it running!

Where did you get those wires? It seems from the photos like they're covered in woven fabric? A nice detail.

Yep they are cloth covered wire. Very vintage looking. Got it from www.lowbrowcustoms.com

They also have plug wires to match. I went with MSD wires though.
