    So, you're saying the motor fell out? In which case I would agree, deffinately tighten that sucker up next time!
    Guess you're lucky it fell out on the bench at home not out on the road somewhere, thou....

    I saw the pics of the paint over at the "other" site. Please share the finished product here.

    You took a motorcycle that was fairly average and are turning it into something really special.

    Good job, el Presidente!

    That would make a good engine for a jet ski in California. Or for a snow blower in Minnesota.

    These need to be sorted, cleaned and, in some cases, replaced.

    One airhead electrical system, minus the whirly, chargie bits.

    It's laid out pretty much like it is in the bike, too.
