It will be all the sweeter when that 650 rumbles into life and you hit the road for some well earned R & R.

Now, when is it going to be roadworthy? I'm not daft enough to say finished, I've given up on that.
.... I know I know...

And I dont know. Gutter guy is at the house today installing new seamless aluminum gutters. One more thing to check off the list. Did I mention we just bought a duplex today? as if I didnt have enough to do... Now Im a slumlord too!

I started reading this thread on Friday and I was hoping to see it end by the time I got to p.42
Now, however, I get to wait and see how it all comes along step by step.
Fantastic progress matey!!

Did real actual work on the Beezer today. Finished truing the rear wheel. Installed a Motion Pro adhesive rim strip to protect the tube from the spokes. These things are sweet. I can see all my dirtbikes getting these. Then spooned on the tire using some new motion pro rim protectors so I don't scratch my aluminum rims. Worked killer.

Just spent the last three hours.....

...catching up on this thread. I love the way you start into something you've not done before, and by the time you're finished it looks expert. Some guys just start out with more innate talent than the rest of us. That bike is gonna be so sweet when it's finished, and there's lots of us who'll keep tuning in if it takes you another three years to get in licensed and on the road.

Thanks for taking us along thru all the issues.

I think the goal we'd like to assign to you is to get the bike riding down the road under its own power in the Spring. . .. Spring 2014!

Bike looks great KZ.

No I haven't seen that actually. Been a little out of touch last week. No new projects for me though. I'm all projected out right now.

Quick update for yas. No I haven't done any work on the bike. The reason the bike was outside last post is because we were preparing to move. Fast forward to today and we are now living in western Montana in the Bitterroot valley. My heated floor shop has been replaced by an outside garage with little to no heat and it has been -15 deg this week so no bike work is getting done till it warm a up a little bit. Think I'll go skiing instead!

... you could take the boat for something like snow-cayaking ...
Looking at the weather-report for the United States it seems to be a good idea to get a pack of huskies so you'll keep your mobility.
Nice workshop, it's a pity that it's not heated. So you can't make use of winter-time.
Kind regards from (too) warm (for this time of year) Germany, Bambi
