    Slow. I've got the frame and small parts off being chromed. The motor is done. I've got to get on the front suspension. The tank needs sent out and done. The rear fenders are in Maryland and need to get here and painted. Still need to get the front fender. Alot of parts need polished and then final assembly and test and tune can begin. Oh yea, and the seat is at Mosh's.

    All this ontop of a 350X motor I'm in the middle of and the 250R motor out of my MX trike is down and needing done. It's gonna be busy around here.

    OK, bad news. The guy that is supposed to do the frame can't. Says it's waaaaaay too big for his booth (thought it would be as big as a bicycle frame) and pieces with that many angles will run and stain. Soooooo, I'm looking for places to do powder coating. Not just any powder coating but color tinted chrome powder coating. Any one have any suggestions? Local? Good work at a fair price? Hit me up. Thanks guys.

    I allready have p.m.'s sent to Buster Brown and Dreadhed. (sp?)

    I got the frame back last week from the powder coaters and other parts are rolling in quick. The tank and fenders (thanks Syko) are out getting painted.

    Here are a few progress pics. Sorry about the pic quality. I lost my digital cmaera nad had to use my phone.

    Lookin' good Rick. Are you planning on doing a DC 200x 20 day build on this one? Can't wait to see it all back together.
    I know how you're feeling. Mine still isn't completely done yet.
