Into This...


Was a lot of fun wrenching on the little Honda this weekend. Especially when I got my hand wedged between the frame and the dang engine:eek2:

Here's the wiring (anybody know a good electrical engineer???):


Here's the engine in all it's solo glory (135lbs my butt!):


Got the solo cowl in the mail the other day and I'm excited to get this project completed!

I've always been a sucker for the cafe racer styleeee... :thumbup

Isn't it an eye-opener to feel the weight of an old engine :scared

Have fun :D

I was going to say, you should be packing and not starting new projects.

Will we see this bike on a pie run? :devious

Yeah, I'm not planning on going to overboard on this project. Just get the frame powder-coated and some paint on it and I'm going to ride, ride, ride!
