Pat came over tonight to work through some more of the little shit, that is big shit in the long run. Down to two fittings in the oil tank, oil, and gas. But we all know how that goes, probably end up taking me another month to finish. Fuck it this is half the fun. Pops is in town through the weekend...come on Chopper Gods!

Today I got the primary in, bearings in the neck, tank mounted, seat back on, fuel line on, mag in place, and drank some PBR. Still have a lot of little shit to do...clutch pressure plate, adjust the pushrods, hook up the clutch cable, put the exhaust on and fluids. I figure it will probably take me all week to do the little shit. Hope to be kicking her by Friday. Dad will be back in town next weekend...might need a little luck on my side.

Damn I hate drilling or sanding paint off this frame, but rather than have my tank break off going down the highway, this was a necessary evil. Pat machined me some bungs for the backbone and I drilled out and welded them in tonight. Everything went together nicely and this should be good for many miles to come. One more thing off the list.
