Give that glass man another chance or two before you fire him. Remember the painter eventually came through.

only 2oz, but i was using the same scale that BMW uses to weigh their bikes, could be 20#, who knows.

too late, now the paint and glass man both canned.

Yes the suspension is back. However I need to spend some time in Quick Books for the taxman. If the painter or glassman need a new job and are willing to work cheap, there is a book keeper opening at my place.

Hi JD! Great job on your new build! I'm sad to see my bike is looking very plain compared to yours!

Mike sold his Tiger. Do you think you could build another Beast for him? Haha!

thanks. i saw that the Tiger was gone, what's the plan? Don't think Mike needs any help with a bike build, besides everyone knows Dunesnstars built that rat ninja, so you could always give him a hand if necessary.
