This ride report has everthing : a coast to coast trip , a race, and a bike build.

im amazed on how you can source the parts on a 84 year old bike.

Keep up the good work

good luck with the curbside repair

Don't forget Icebox's offer in case it needs a bit of touching up in another few hours

At 430, as i was slding the front cylinder on, i found out that they didnt leave enough room for the cyl to clear the exhaust cam tower

Fucking idiots

So i got an hour of sleep. Guess i will find a grinder and waller it out tonite.

I hope these cyls work good, once i finally get the damn things on

"Fun, that's what we're having. "
