Knuckle

So last week was completely insane, I started really working on the bike on Sunday to get it going for the show. The plan was to roll up to Baltimore Thursday evening and meet up with the crew there and head up to Philly and then on to Brooklyn the next morning. Probably got less than 20 hours of sleep the whole week. Finished getting it together and couldn't get it started, ended up calling it a wrap late Thursday night and loaded it in the truck at 2:30 in the morning. Got to Baltimore at 5:30 and loaded it in the chase truck.


Got up to Vanders shop and started again, couldn't get it going. Threw in the towel and rolled out to the Dice party and crashed at Vanders.


The next morning we head back the the shop, and Midnight Mike (who owns Midnight Cycle in Jersey, go there if you need work) meets us over at the shop and we pull the bike around the block with his Shovel, almost wipe out a couple times and finally get her started. Got all the timing worked out rode it around the block a couple times and roll out for the show.


Went from this...










To this
In about a week and it runs like a raped ape.



Special thanks to InjunWayne and Dawn for all your help, time, and keeping an eye on my kiddos and puppy dog while we worked around the clock on this thing, Midnight Mike for all your help with making it run and Vander for the carb, use of your shop and letting me crash, and everyone else who helped out at Vanders trying to get this thing sorted out...
