    Sorry, been on a week long ride through Idaho on the Indian😉. Then work punished me for taking vacation, haha. Finally got back in the shop to investigate the rear wheel lock up...pretty self explanatory judging from the picture. Sheared drum! Probably from the friction material seperating long...

    Now for the bad news! Haha. Was out ripping around having a blast test riding before I start trusting it to get back and forth to work. Anyways, I round a corner, give it some throttle, up around 40mph. Then, hear a loud bang and the rear wheel locks up....like REALLY locked up! I skid to stop...

    Holy crap guys! Just found another oneo_O. Saw it come up for sale this morning on the ol interweb and pounced. She's a 79 special I believe. 13k on the tac and seems to have compression, got high hopes for this engine. Think I have enough to keep me busy for awhile now....at least that's what...

    Scored another '81 motor, also low compression :doh:. Whatever, I'll take it. Gonna try my hand at a rebuild this summer and leave the bike intact till winter. I'm sure I'll have questions once I crack this thing open!
