    Actually looking forward to this build. Really excited about riding a big dog again. Love my bear but looking forward to the ridgeback.

    So I decided that I will powdercoat the triple trees black to see if I like them. If I don’t I will send them out for chroming. Powdercoat is much cheaper that chroming.

    Did ya ever see or look into PVD coating? I almost had some wheels done with that, they say its really durable and you can get it in a lot of different choices

    Funny I was just checking that out, I wonder if that is the same thing as black chrome? There is another term called cerocoate probably murdered the spelling.

    Yes they have different finishes and black chrome is one of them, and the other coating is Cerakote

    Just ordered the raptor pegs from dlxoprodox. Love their grips and pegs.
    Sending the motor out tomorrow to get assembled. It’s coming together
