DaBearWife has taken to calling it "Spock"... It's a 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan that my youngest has donated to the project. We'll get to the project in a moment... Since my first ride on a bike, I've been a Honda man (Except for the Harley I built in shop classes in high school) After 40 years of riding, a bad fall at work left me with a bad case of vertigo, which doesn't mix well with riding on two wheels. I gave it up and sold everything in 2013... Six years went by, and not a day without me missing a helmet on my head, the wind in my face... The kid had this bike. It's a Kawasaki, but at this point, I just want to ride... So, the idea is, after a whole lot of discussion, to turn this bike into a front wheeled trike. Front wheeled trikes are more stable, and the build will cost less than a rear wheeled one. Logical... So the name "Spock" was given to this bike. We live on just $1,500 a month and whatever we can make selling crafts, such as "Magic" wands and the like. On another thread a few of the guys here have generously offered to get me back on the road by helping out with the cost of the build. DaBearWife and I took our honey moon on a Honda 450 nighthawk back in 1986. 3,400 miles. Our 34th anniversary is next may. I doubt this thing will be done by then, but with a little help, It could be by this time next year, and we can retrace our honeymoon on on our 35th, May 31st 2021... She knows about the build, just not my plans for a big trip on it. She is handling the money, (Woman can squeeze a dime until Eisenhower gasps for a breath) helping source the parts, and keeping track of the build. Her estimate for the total cost is around $1,400.00. I'm not good at asking for help. But I'm so damned desperate to get back out there, here I am on bended knee. I'll post shots as the build progresses. First up: Tomorrow we remove the engine from the frame, and start on replacing the stator. Oh yeah, we have to do all of the motor work outside, under a carport... Winter is coming. So, if you're willing to help a guy out, just post that you're in, and I'll post DaBearWife's PayPal info... This is gonna be EPIC!
