The bike shop is dead,can't make any money for the build(s).But since I'm going back home I think I have a place to work on them.I've already got a couple paint jobs lined up to do at my buddy's shop.I should be able to get the 'Zuk to a painted rolling chassis,then look for another engine for it.

Good,and bad news!Bad news is I'm single after returning from Texas.Good news,I'm single now I can spend more time in MY new shop!!!!So thids build will resume.
I made the new mounts today for the custom Sportster gas tank.I think that's all the fab work that was left,except maybe a bracket for the upswept exhaust.By the weekend it should be a painted roller.I just need to build up a little cash to pick up an engine,and throw it in.The frame,and sheetmetal(what there is of it{tank,and short rear fender})will be sandblasted,and painted by Thursday(I hope).

Yes he shed some weight and he is back. I cant wait to see this beauty. Aside from pictures of Yonuh's bike, this is the most anticipated build of the year.

Very nice chronicle. Where do I get a springer seat? I checked the sticky in the market place section but couldn't find a solid link to a place that carries them.

OK,the frame is getting sent out to get blasted,or I'll do it.Depending on price.Hopefully this time I will get it painted.Posted in the marketplace for an engine.

Ok,update.I am starting this build......again.Since I'm doing it on a budget I'm just going to put the engine from my '86 in it for now.The '86 is needing attention pretty bad anyway, until I can scare up another engine for this build.

This is the most current pic.It's old though.
I'm thinking about changing colors though.Originally Iwas going blue metalflake,but now I'm thinking baby blue with white scallops or maybe turquoise with white scallops.I want it to
give it an older look,and go with the whitewalls better.
