    Found one of the wire broke on my right pcb board so decided to order new pcb’s.
    Then it’s time to test the electrical system

    Planning on trailering the bike to wild steed Worx sometime in feb-March. Curtis is going to help me with the wheel spacing. Again big thanks to curtis and Derrick and Donna for keeping big dogs going. I wouldn’t have had a chance to get this thing going without the great vendor support.

    I can’t explain how generous Curtis has been with helping me get this project moving ! He’s gone well out of his way to help when needed.
    I can’t say enough great things about his shop and support !

    A little setback today.
    I think the chrome controls that came with the frame do not fit the handlebars ! This would explain the gap!
    Going to send the pitbull controls to sport chrome this week. 2BB618A0-CB2A-4A24-8D54-E6BA7E35D1DD.jpeg 2BB618A0-CB2A-4A24-8D54-E6BA7E35D1DD.jpeg

    Your guess is as good as mine!
    The controls are close but there are small differences, at first I thought it was due to the powdercoat on the bars and after much dremelimg I decided to use the old controls which fit perfectly. Actually looking forward to having the old controls chromed.

    You should learn how to weld up a luggage rack to protect that awesome rear fender:)

    It could be the thickness of the chrome on the controls? Will be interesting to see if the ones that come back line up as good as they now
