Starting to have doubts that I will be finished, running out of time and energy...
Going to try though!

Luke.
Who came up with this crazy deadline anyway?

Still got 8-9 days left. I am hoping you make it.

I got a lot left yet too. Chain guard is being a challenge to straighten the rail. Mirror bracket needs fabrication, Backrest brackets didn't work out yet, new design needed.

Scratched list is growing:. Power and wiring
Lights
Air horns.
Wheelie Bars

On ALiEN FiRE: o_O
Only half of my lighting mounting is done...
no generator backup...
No airfoil, No disc brakes,
(This one is a money issue, my builds are on a bare budget)
and :eek: I still have to recover my seat...

On the Fruit Krate: o_O
No 20 x 1 3/8 front wheelset,
and no Krate chain guard...
still waiting for the chain to show up...
and :eek: I still have to fab the wheelie bar...

Yeah I'm right on schedule...
Merle. :crazy:

Luke, I hope you make it, you are the main reason I stick around here. (other than the bikes! lol)

Weld in new headtube to fit the forks,
Make and weld on disc brake calliper mounts,
Change to 20t freewheel,
Make an extra wide sissy bar that clears the tire,
Re-cover the seat,
Clean the bike off old mounts and tabs,
Wire brush all the old paint off,
Prime and paint,
Reassemble...

There's never enough time this last week during the holidays to get anything done. I have only to put my build together,the brake strap is the only thing not ready. So I have about 2 hours of work, I might barely make it, between the get togethers, parties, and family visits. I've got an extra day on this side of the world, but probably won't need it.
