    Oh man Fella's,My Camera won't work.I had it coming on and it would just die ,so I charged the batteries and I had the same issue again with the supposed charged batteries.I went to Meijer and got a charger kit with 4 batteries and had them charging for a few hour's but I still can't get it to come on.The trike is coming along really nice and if all else fail's I guess I'm gonna be buying a camera today.Picture's are priority and someway somehow I'll have some up ASAP.FYI I would'nt buy another Sony Cybershot again .Sorry for the techinical delay here gang just bare with me as I'm sure the suspense is killing all of ya's.

    Posting Daily Pic's until she's done !!

    Well I'm back up and running as far as the camera goes,check out all the batteries I was desperately going thru last night ,but I ended up getting a new charger and batterie's and this morning I was up and running all day.I took a few but did'nt get as far as I had planned.Ya know what really is bad is when I put part's in certain place's so I know where there at and then when it come's time to where you need those special part's I can't find em'. Is that just me or what?

    [IMG][/IMG]

    As far as getting all this stuff done I have'nt really started sweating bullet's yet but I do know that the preassure is soon to be on plus I have another 1 1/2 project's that still have to be wrapped up and loaded by 1 week from tomorrow.Tire's are ready to get mounted up and the wheel's are all polished up,as you can see.The tire's are gonna be New ITP Holeshot's and I went with a set of 18X10.5x9 on Betsy ,so she's gonna look tite.Going on a set of OEM wheel's and off-set with the silvervein powdercoated hub's.

    My A.M. is gonna consist of having the tire's all mounted up and ready to go on the machine by 9:00 and starting on front end assembly after that and having it a roller by afternoon.I packed the rear bearing's and installed the swinger bearing's today so that should go relatively quick.All of the tiny rubber piece's are pretty much laid out so that should go fine( as I'm knocking on wood)..As you can see in the pic's a few of the bolt's are getting replaced with polished one's and the motor's almost done getting detailed.That should be in the chasis mounted up and good to go by Thursday morning.
    Other than having the stupid issue's with the camera everything is coming together just like clockwork ,oh' and me hiding these part's from myself is getting to be quite frusterating.While cross referencing I found that this new style rear brake cylinder may fit,it's looking like it could be a cake walk with that part of the brake system,which should be Friday when that's completed the pic show's the updated brake cylinder..

    Tomorrow should be a Big Day on the build and thing's should'nt be so time comsuming and as teadous as it goes from there.Once I get Betsy a roller and have a set of bar's on her I can start adding Bling and accessories which I'm getting really excited about putting on . Camera permitting I'll be posting up pic's every night till she's done so make sure you's all check in on it.Only a week to finish her thing's are looking good...How's she looking for ya's??

    Remember if your not attending Trikefest and you still wanna have a chance of taking this build home ya better get your ticket's soon. This is'nt the actual machine pictured below but if you think this 350X is nice wait till ya see your 2010 Trikefest raffle trike !! Until Tommorrow.........

    glad to see the camera was ok. They really eat up the batteries!! I prolly got more into buying lithium batteries than the cost of the camer!! Finally got around to getting a rechargeable set!! I cant wait to see this coming together!! Someone is sure gonna have there year made when this drawing is held.

    Wednesday's Progress Pic's of ole' Betsy !!

    Well this deal of me posting up every night is'nt really working for me timewise so i"ll be posting up pic's in the morning instead.I was out later than intended last night,12:30 am that is,so posting last night was outta the question.But per the schedule I got it up on three tire's so it's officially a trike brought back from the depth's now ,so for us that's a good thing...

    I had more issue's of me playing hide the part's on myself again which is starting too get really old,it's like I created a game called (let's mess with Roger or something).And there alway's stashed so I don't sell them which I'm alway's doing .Well anyway's, today is put the motor in day.I have my neighbor kid who come's over and help's me out every now and then ,working in the shop later today to help out with some of this work I have to finish up here in the next few day's before I load up.I'm anxiously waiting on the UPS and Fed-X guy's everyday now for goodies that are coming in,thing's are on schedule so far,knock on wood again.

    Here's the bearing's getting all lube'd up and getting ready for assembly,there is'nt gonna be any slop in this Girl .

    [IMG][/IMG]

    This is what I hate ,when all of the part's start getting mixed up and piled on one another.here's the rear end pretty much complete other than just a few odd's and end's.On the next pic's you'll see how the rest of the build is going.She's finally starting to take shape.

    This last pic's is showing exactly what I have to wake up to today and start with,which is where I'm wanting to be schedule wise.I still ai'nt sweating it but I also understand that it's another day closer to TF.Look for pic's in the morning unless I get way ahead and have a few minute's free to get on the computer.I'm planning on having the motor in plus alot more by day's end.I know one thing for sure,I wish those little gremlin's that Kasey has hanging around his shop would come out here to Michigan and help me out ,I sure could use them for a few day's
