I was going to lace new hoops to stock spokes, but they just looked too wimpy..I recently got some heavy duty stainless spokes and nips from Buchannan..top notch folks.

I laced up the rear wheel this morning. Got it really close right off the bat, no hop in it..just a little runout to chase down. I'd really like to try the Tubliss thing on this bike.

Thanks guys, graveyard was horrible..glad that's over.

I think I'll true the front wheel in the swingarm too. I might have to make some spacers or maybe just get it close and true it on the bike later.

I brought home a lift table last night!!!

Yeah, nice to meet you too!!


18" rear, I started spooning the rear tire on yesterday and forgot that it has double bead locks. I tried to squeeze it in there with the tire half on and got an anit-scratch rag stuck under the lock and gave up for the day.




I put the 21" front together the other day, it went really fast as all the spokes are the same length. I'll tru it up when it's bolted back up.

Heh heh, there's a point you just have to let it sit.

Will two bead locks be enough? You might need some sheet metal screws in there!

Hiya, Roger!!


I'm ramping up to make the final push on this project. I'm going to borrow a buddies cherry picker on Sunday to get her back up on the wheels.

As those of us that live around here know, it's been hot since the last little update and I work in the heat, so I don't do much in the garage during the summer. Plus I went out and rode Nevada on dirt with the XRR, now doing repairs to get ready for Death Valley next month.

Anywhoooo, I ended up with an extra set of fat bars and some different risers. I had to make some spacers to make it all fit and I've got this bolted on:




I've got the seat about where it's going to go. The taller rise on the bars helps, it feels a little bit between sport and standard now.
