Why, thank you!! I'm pretty black and blue myself after fighting with torquing down and trying to straiten out the bent tripple tree lower.

I'm loving the blue and black. Good looking scheme. What are you doing with the bodywork, color wise? Blue? Silver? Did I miss it?

Thank you, thank you!

I'm actually not entirely sure about the bodywork yet. Still playing with ideas. I was thinking of doing a metalic gray with a simple white stripe lengthwise, but now i think I need to encorporate this blue in the body somewhere. Maybe a pseudo 50th aniv scheme ...

She started, ran like a champ! Amazing the difference that the #20 pilot and #100 main jets made! And the synch too. No oil squirting all over or anything! The petcock did start to leak, and mess up my nice new paint on the engine, I'll have to do some touch up, but that was expected. After a tiny test ride, the front end feels kind of wobbly, I don't know what's up with that, just another problem to add to the list...
