Speedrcr is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Finally have been able to ride...a little

It's been about a year of work to get the sporty up and running, but I have been able to ride it a few time last month.
Between working, the kids and some family drama I had to find time when ever I could.
I have some small leaks in my oil tank, so I finally ordered up a new one instead of trying to save the old triumph tank that we hacked up...next up is a new seat design (read thicker)
My friends have given the bike name "Gerti" in honor of my friends mom who was gunned down last month - she was constantly asking me if it was done yet and when I was bringing it over.
This winter she's comes apart for a good frame cleaning and powder coating and maybe a fresh top end.

Before...


After...



Oh yea - my 12 yr old has claimed the bike for himself when he turns 16. My daughter wants me to get a big one so I can take her for rides... the 10 yr old thinks it is too loud.
