The bike is of-course utterly magnificent......but I really have been enjoying the photography itself, I believe that having built the bike himself Vic has captured it in a way no-one else could ever hope to. Great quality, lighting....what an eye !!!!

I also got some there stuff for the forks as these are only 30mm long. I blew WAY too much money on fasteners. Thank god i don't have kids; i would be a terrible father.
"sorry kiddo you're gonna have to wear those shoes for another 6 months. I don't care the sole fell off one and your toes are poking out, daddy needs to buy overpriced hardware for his toy."
Do you happen to have a part number for those yamaha bolts? Those will definitely look better than the stock ones currently in use.
The wiring is finally coming to a close. I have never done any serious type of wiring job, so as per usual I decided to jump in at the deep end. I was really struggling and shit wasn't working so after letting it sit for a couple weeks, I decided to take it down to a local DIY moto place and get some help. It was worth it as one of the guys there was a major help and even drew up a lattice diagram for this bike. Its very close to first start up at this point.
Went for the first ride tonight. First impressions are; HOLY MOTHER OF TORQUE! this thing rips! I did a couple pulls up to 7k and it gets going quick! I haven't even had a chance to mess with the carbs yet. I have to say its running remarkably well for literally doing nothing to the carbs from the factory. last couple things to deal with are; I need to sync the carbs and the cam end plugs are leaking, which hopefully I will have time to address tomorrow. last time I rode it was in December of 2010.
Im done with school for the summer! So I synced the carbs and did about 20 miles today and it was running pretty good. I changed the oil, and I still have the filter that I want to cut open and inspect. Still some hiccups in the low end. Tuning will take a while as I have little experience here. I have been thinking about scheduling some dyno time.
