Unfortunately nothing. I am so swamped with school that I haven't been in my garage in two months. I'm currently taking six classes plus a lab. No time to do anything but school and homework. I really want to get this thing together but I don't know when I'm going to have time. Sorry guys.

Hey John. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond to you. I haven't been getting on here at all. This is my last semester of school and thus has been very very busy. I have been focused on that and have not touched or even looked at the bike in months. I figure I will have time after I graduate.
I have been contemplating designing and building an entire new frame. I will keep the old one for another project or sell it if the price is right. I will wait and see what happens. I will probably get the motor built and finish the swingarm setup and at least be able to ride while I build the next frame. '
The last couple of days here have been warm and seeing everyone on their bikes has me itching. I don't go out to the garage at all because I know if I do, I will start working on it and my school work will get pushed aside.
How is your bike doing? Did you get it all finished up?

I still haven't put it through inspection. In the near future I'll be buying the tires and the front fender setup I know I need to pass inspection.

Sadly, no updates. I have been busy building a house for my dad, remodeling my house, my regular full-time job, and trying to keep the wife happy and also spend time with my two boys. I am about done with dad's house and my remodel, so hoping this winter to design and build the new frame and motor.
Haven't been on here in forever. How is everyone doing?
