    First ride in the books, feels great! Breaking motor in now then tear the whole bike down for paint and detailing 015A762A-81D8-4885-A5C4-1FDDE8FF19D5.jpeg B328F2BB-E38B-4138-A7D4-484859EFDF46.jpeg 58A31406-4DEF-43AF-918A-1B72269BA6F7.jpeg

    The bike looks fantastic ,and I can tell it is what you wanted from build.
    Very nice work on converting the cub to a very cool trail machine, enjoy.
