Pardon the length of this post, but it will answer a lot of questions.

My first build is complete finally! I finished up with 8 hours of electrical wiring between yesterday and this morning. She rips!

I started in in Oct. last year and I am done as of today. My dad rules. If it wasn't for him and all his obscure tools, I would be out hundreds more haha. Thanks to John (supercub) for helping me with some assembly. Thanks to Treats and 1977 Mopeds for all the parts. Thanks to Erik for the white saddle seat. I bumped a 2 year old FS post on a whim and he still had it for sale. Thanks to Jesse B for the powder coated white side rails. Thanks to my electrical genius friend Matt for explaining the wiring I needed to do. Also, thanks to Miguel Rivera form the Puddle Cutters for my sweet ass decal (when he decides to ship it). That's the last piece to this puzzle.

This is what it looked like before I started in Oct. 2010.

This is what it looks like now. May 2011.
