    There was a dog emoji there when I typed it, I swear!! Lol. I could see how that would be confusing without the emoji. Oddly enough, it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility with my parents age and mental health.

    Finished the bike last minute. We actually didn’t get it running until it was @ xs650fest. I ended up not being able to do the qualification ride, but won top 3 at the show and Best Paint. So many awesome people were there and so many cool rides!

    Hi Satch,
    kudos on the bike's highly deserved prize wins and your heroic efforts in getting it ready in time for the show.
    Being 80 years old myself the thing I find odd is that should your parents find the need to bite your wife they still have enough of their own teeth to do so.

    You know, one little typo, and now my parents are labeled as some sort of canabalistic, pseudo-zombie, biters! It was my parents DOG that bit my wife guys!! :) Surprisingly though Fred, even at 78, my Pops still has all but two of his own teeth. However, he’s not the biter. Thank you for the kudos, despite the ribbing.:thumbsup:

    Very nice bike. What ignition system did you use. I'm looking for bikes with VI kits and how they installed the battery and what battery they are running.

    Jmann, it has a Pamco ignition with a Dynatek DC 6-1 coil. The motor has been rephased, 707cc pistons, PMA, 5th gear OD, hydraulic actuated clutch (TwoMany, notice I did not claim to have a hydraulic clutch, Please :geek:), 8 pack clutch discs, and elephant foot adjusters. It has Motogadget M-unit and an Anti-gravity battery hidden under the seat in an electric’s box I built.
