Running an open primary.
FUCK! This thing is battling me. Nothing just goes together without fitament issues.
I asked my machine shop to give me 10 thousanths on the oil pressure bushing. He says, "That's alot bro, are you sure?"
I say, "Don't bro me if you don't know me. I used a micrometer."
He clears 5 and tells me that was the standard size.
I needed 10 mother fucker!
whered you get that rear fender from and how wide is it. i have a 4.5 tire and got a 4.5 ribbed from 7 metals and it looks like shit. doesnt have a rolled edge and the rib is off centre trying to figure out what to do. he told me i wanted the same width as the tire and it looks terrible
This bike kind of rocks.
What kind of goop did you seal the gas cap with?
my buddy TJ is an ace with etching tanks and lining them. We also used Viton rubber gasket under the cap.
Just got the frame back!!!
Dude, I'm going to have to fix my bike now so we can ride in together with our orange bikes like a couple of bad asses!

Awesome, Brandon! I L-U-V the orange. Keep it up, dude! I want to see that bike at Born Free!
Man... Up until 1:30 am last night. The orange color isn't really popping in the artificial light. The pearl is not coming out. I swear it's not the tangerine dream it looks like.
These iron heads are a beast. I really appreciate the alloy heads. Even the pain in the ass pre unit rocker box/head combo is much quicker than this beast.
Had some rocker boxes lying around that gave their organs to a good cause.
Doing a solo mission on the fork by using a ratchet strap. An extra set of hands helps a lot.
Tranny in... I kind of miss my unit bikes here as well...
Got this oil tank from Keith (RIP). The cap was in one of his misc. random part bins.
Stopping point. I get my sissy bar, seat bracket, and license plate/tail light mount back from chrome today.
