    A nice 60 miler today. She stretched out her seat belts a little so we had to do a little roadside adjustment. Otherwise awesome day. I think I'm going to put it up for sale. Reasonable price? Might just sell the sub frame and car frame and keep the tub. We'll see I guess.

    "Ok, turns out I'm not as stubborn as I thought and I'm easily persuaded to change plans and priorities. I didn't want to put the car on the right because I had a stronger and much much easier mounting system on the left side. After pondering the traffic topic I decided to get my head in the game and make it work. Here is what I came up with. What do you think? I also spaced out the lower mounts a little more as mentioned above. Thanks for the comments... please keep them coming."

    Bugger!
    Being Ozstralian I so wanted this to be a left hand build......need something to get me motivated and started on my own project.:freaky
    Still, you have a fantastic build going here. Got me captivated!:D
    Molly and O'Sully keep at me to get a rig up and running.

    Just passed this off to Fabone. Great to meet you two and I hope you enjoy it. We have and I'm sure I'll regret getting rid of it. I know you will make good use of it though and good luck on the Alaska plans. Hope you had a good drive home.

    I'll be watching for your next build, I'd buy a frame from you if they are affordable. Great work!

    It was great to meet you and Gracie. We both thank you for taking the time to answer all our questions. We had no longer left your place and we were arguing which bike this was going on. Looks like I'll need to get my own. :D I hope your wife was not too bummed out from it all. Seeing your fab skills and your shop, I know you will have no problem building another one.

    We did do a detour to Crater, but the traffic was light and the drive home was good. We hope your move all goes well.
