    I'm a machinist by trade. It's suppose to be a revolver cylinder, .75 cal. And no I'm not making anybody else one.

    You might want to PM mr. BBChopper, he has done some very nice custom caps for reasonable price.

    I don't think he doing anymore. I tried to get him to make me some threads, and he said he didn't have time anymore. The problem I'm having, is for the last 17 years, I've only made threads with a CNC machine, and I haven't had time to play with my machine I have now, to get the threads right. Someday soon hopefully.

    Got quite a bit done this weekend in between OPS. All I have left is polish out the front wheel, bleed both the front and rear brakes, right foot peg, adjust drive belt, fire it up to check clutch adjustment, and put the outer primary support bearing plate on.

    Seat is almost done too. I'll still have to make a bracket for the back rest. And remount all my bags.

    Seat should be in today, and it's going to be in the mid 80's. I feel a test ride coming on, so I better go get my work done.

    Seat fits. I got a matching back rest too, but I still need to make a bracket for it.

    Only did about 20 miles this afternoon. Going to have to readjust the push rods, lifters never quieted down. I don't know how the shift rod got out of adjustment. It shifts and down shifts ok, but it won't go all the way into 1st gear. My speedometer is off 1 mph, and the carb still needs adjusted. But it passed inspection, and I got another 2 years on the tags.
