    Sorry man I haven't. Just didn't appeal to me visually. I did see that letter you sent to the horse magazine and saw mention of help from 2 other people on fab and electrical work tho. If I'm mistaken my bad!

    Well yeah, not built solely by me. I did have a buddy with welding skills do the frame work and another give guidance with the wiring. But nothing was farmed out. But she was defiantly a shed build. There was no cash paid for labour on my bike. If that is what you were getting at.

    Just getting started

    No worries Carbon. I'm a little confused over the whole thing, so its no drama mate. Who knows how long this will take me anyway, im doing all this in the underground parking lot of my condo.
     
  9. Wish I had his "garage". Just saying... Not stirring up trouble.

    Garage, bedroom, livingroom, kitchen whatever.... The point is the guy did most of the work himself!

    Btw, wish I had your beard :laugh:

    I'll have to admit that "my garage" is my work place. Boss was nice enough to let me do the work there. I did however, do all the work on my bike from start to finish. If I had any help, it was from the guys here on this forum.:thumbsup:

    Never entered anything, would be an honor to nominated. All work done here in my garage paint, all new bearings, rebuilt masters, rebuilt calipers, new hagon shocks, drilled rotors, and lots of other work. Nothing crazy plain and simple and enjoyed every minute of it. Heres a couple pics.
