You'll have a new song when rolling now.

Until I noticed the extra disk, I though you had snuck in and took my leaners wheel.

Pic's soon.

So Black Sunshine is going to get a little make over this winter.
I will be removing the tub and modding the frame ( lightning it up by about 50+ lbs ) making a box for it.I will also mod the car suspension and the bike as well and change the fairing to a more PD style.I'm going to make the whole rig a little more OVERLANDISH and go off road more!!.
STAY TUNED !!

It's always good to make plans for months in advance. We are still hoping summer will start breaking by then. 102 at lunch yesterday.

Glad to see you are getting a place to work and it looks like it could hold up a few inches of snow.

Man, what an interesting thread! Went through the whole 45p to see if I could find the VSTrom damper but did not see what I wanted to see!!

So kept on reading the rest! Wish I was as handy as you are! Bloody nice!
