thanks for all the positive comments.. def a labor of love..
also have to say thanks to some good freinds out there that helped me tremendously, from putting parts on the bike when i was sick with pneumonia .. to pulling the motor out and putting is back in and tuning it for me.
and to the most important person ...... MY WIFE.. for enjoying the same things as i do and pushing me to do it again.
i am most def. happy with the turn out.. now it is my turn as a rider to put some good times down, and see what a big guy can run. i am down to 255 and hope to get to 245 lbs by race season.
