Worked on the '77 a good bit Friday night & Saturday afternoon. For some reason I got all excited like someone lit a fire under my ass & got to doing shit! I think it comes from actually getting to ride & be around my broSS who feel the same way I do about motorcycles & chop's .
This town of 24 thousand people has no heart or soul that i live in. It's pretty much every man for him self which baffles the shit out of me considering theres actually some knowledge around the area. But no body gives a fuck what the other guy is doing, It's weird, kind of like a damn prideful competition or some shit. There is no " Hell yeah grab some beer & lets do it!"..... Makes me sad. Theres a select few that you can count on but that's it, and it's not that often it works out.
OK OK bitchin & cryin over with...My mind goes off on rabbit trails sometimes & I can't stop it ! Everything is what it is for a reason right?
Really happy with how the paint turned out...TurboNate took my drawings & shit out of my head & made it happen fo reals! Ended up being way more subtle then i expected...It's on the verge of being "Ghost" flames but now i wouldn't change it at all! I love the Red he mixed up for the front. One day I'll quit takin pics with my phone & try to do it justice.
Still gotta wire it , plumb it, figure out my exhaust, & fab up a sissy bar/fender support which I'll put the tail light & license plate on also...I think i may have positioned the fender & sissy bar bungs a little too far back now that i look at it out side...Goes further past the end of the swing arm more then i realized. Oh well. Too late now it'll have to stay that way till i get everything broken in good & some good miles on motor then I'm going to hard tail it the right way for good.
The front end is still giving me fit's on trying to get the wheel spaced right...Made 4 different set's of spacers trying to get it right. I'm about to chunk the bulky stock calipers & just get a set off a Jap bike & call it good. Being Jockey shift I want front brakes. Plus I don't ride too cautious as it is & love having top performance shit at my finger tips.
