    I am sad to report, I have to drop out of the build-off...... no progress being made, and no money to get anything further along... plus major life changes in progress... I needed to have it fully welded, and in running/riding condition by now in order to have a legitimate chance of being finished in time... I will continue to post any progress made, and follow along.... I wish you all luck.

    Wow, really like the side-view profile. If Yamaha were to reintroduce the 650 like this, I think it would go.
    I'm worried about the welds, though...
     
  7. Well I've been ripping the streets on my build of bike. It runs so strong! Only issue is a small oil leak from the push rod seal...I have a new one just no damn time to put it in. All in all I wouldn't change a thing!

    I just picked this up to play with too...

    ok so try'n to get these thing go'n and build'n a crazy bike just is not work'n with shop and day job hrs. so I had to shift gears again. im do'n a brat lane splitter I put a stock swingarm back on the bike and took some parts from a KZ lane splitter that Im build'n for fun and lowered the seat rails. add some rebel shocks the jumpstreet bars and pandemonium tank from the KZ project and a cheap seat ill recover I got at the swap meet last week. i have the hhb riser bushings and a hydro clutch for it. I have to order a few things PMA/pamco and sparx cap. but it should be a run and ride'n by the july 4th. just have'n a few delays with some of my parts guys and cash is get'n short rite now with no parts to sell so I had to rethink a few things to try to make the best event I can. here's a pic of the bike so far
