    Thanks to 650 Skull for the nomination and for all the votes so far!
    I think this bike is kind of a thorn among roses!
    The story;
    I got a PM from a member in Washington State! saying did you see this on the Madison WI CL???? Then Weekend Rider threatened to kick my ass if I didn't go buy it. Turns out a building contractor had it got it as final payment for a job, he sent it to motorcycle performance to "get it running" which they only partly succeeded in doing. It was a 9500 mile garage queen that still needed a bit of tweeking and some parts changed back to stock.
    I had a freshly painted set of 79 stock tins hanging in the garage so it was kind of fated that this bike follow me home. After some tough negotiating that included his shutting and locking the garage door and getting in his truck, we settled on a price and I brought it home. On the lift, the usual 20 or 30 hours of wake up drill, clutch, carbs, brakes, replacing a few worn out parts and putting it all back to stock and it's on the road. It's now got 10,000 miles, running like a swiss watch.

    Typical, waited all day for 20 minutes of sun, got clobbered up, pushed the bugger outside and it wouldn't start :laugh:
    This was 3/30 and by 4 it was going dark so I shoved the turd back in the garage till I've calmed down.

    Don't know if we can add another to the one for voting, cheers trebleG btw, but this would look cool at the side :)


    It's not even 7pm, but feels like midnight,,,, I'm emigrating.

  7. Hey guys,
    I'd like to thank everybody who has voted for me so far, I am truly honored.

    Here are a few more details about the bike:
    * 277 rephase by Hugh's Handbuilt
    * HHB PMA conversion
    * HHB fork brace
    * Kick start only, all starter gear has been removed
    * Custom built Race Tech rear shocks
    * Custom wiring harness with cloth covered wire
    * Use of many Motogadget devices, including the M-Unit, M-Lock and Motoscope Pro.
    * Use of an Antigravity brand lithium ion battery for memory retention of Motogadget devices

    I had vacation scheduled today, so I loaded the bike in the trailer and head out to Rosiere WI, a very rural location with this cool looking old building. I figured I better get a few pictures taken before it starts snowing, just in case I get enough votes to be in the calendar. I attached a few pics for your viewing pleasure. I also included a video of a drive by I took a few weeks back, for your auditory pleasure. Gotta love the sound of the rephase. Enjoy!

    Your site sucks as far as being able to vote! I scrolled through the bike pics and then finally found where to choose which ones to vote for--OK great--but I could only remember 2 names--how the heck can we go back and re-view the bikes and then vote? Are we supposed to write down each bike and then when we get to the end where we can vote--look at our list? I couldn't even figure how to re-view the bikes. :banghead::wtf::mad:
