thanks all! Love the first comment about being a farmer, which i was up until last year when my father sold his farm. My entire powdercoating shop was in one of the barns actually

Im happy how the bike is turning out. I love to design and make things. I just overall really enjoy riding and modding this bike. Im a huge fan of Buells.

Marc has graciously consented to allow me to feature his build on the Jester Motorwerkz blog. He has asked for a couple of weeks to finish things up on his Bad Ass ride. So stay tuned.

Wow. Those parts you made for this bike are beautiful. Where did you learn to do all this? I am an engineering student and I hope to be able to fab and design at the level you do one day.

Finally finished the paint yesterday and got a chance to fire the bike up. Buttoning up the exhaust and a few other odds and ends... hope to test ride it later this week!
