I've got to be honest here Jimmy boy.

I really don't care if you have a full-time job, or you're busy as hell
or you're just tired and can't get to it right now.

I don't care!

I expect to see progress on a daily basis.

At least get us some additional pictures, some more information,
damn it man, anything we can look at or read here.

This is one cool build.

Chop - Chop, buddy.

John

Yes Boss ! Im on it Boss. It'l be done tomorrow sir ....

I'll post some small progress, but progress none the less. Still waiting for the swingarm, shocks, and rear fender - all on order, just taking too long.

Here's the rear sets from Chainsickle. Shane is looking into a peg lowering bracket for these which will be better for off-road standing. For now, they will work. I put the stock passenger peg on for now until I get some better pegs..

Here's the view of me sitting on the bike wishing it were done and I was riding thru the desert at warp speed

Check out the red anodized brake cable guide. I found this the other day browsing the Trail Tech web site - I think it was $20 bucks. It clamps on the Trail Tech headlight frame. Some cool bling .... Oh yah, brake cable too long. Gotta get a shorter one.

Yeah, Jimmy!...I'm with JohnBoy...Get off your ass!!! This project is taking WAYYY too long!


Plus, I still have erotic dreams of your "S-spec." 990...that I didn't buy (like an idiot).

The very least you could do is not make us wait too long for this one.

Make the kit(s)...

My thoughts are that it would include the swingarm and the other brackets/components.The challenge will be to see how low a cost I can offer the swingarm & components.

And you could offer options for either DS, Scrambler or Tracker... F**kin awesome.

The chips are all gone. Just a swingarm remains. Should have it in hand this weekend for the test fit. Then off for finishing....

Schwing arm...

Holy S**t, JTH...

That's one bad assed schwing arm. Totally solid work (of art)!!! If that's an indication of what the bike ends up looking like it's going to be a f**kin beauty.

I dont have the official weight yet, but the CAD estimate is ~13 lbs. I believe the stock arm is around 10 lbs, so a bit heavier - but pretty stout. I'll have the official weight this weekend.
