But when you read dozens of "internet horror stories" there has to be some truth....

Hard to tell what you're looking at since you deleted the texts in your posts..... You're looking at 6+ year old bikes based on your more recent posts. It all comes down to if it was maintained and how it was used during its life. Being a better year ... more »

Dropped my frame & triple clamps off for powder coat last week. Thought i would have a week or two before I got them back, took 2 days on the frame & upper triple clamp, and less than a day on the other triple clamp i had to do some work on first.

Correct. Which seems a bit high, but i've also never torn deep into these motors before either to know whats involved & costs associated. That is part of the reason i'm holding off on building it until i can dedicate time to see if this is any where ... more »

I did get pricing from him. I completely forgot i ran across him somewhere else and shot him an email last week. Labor is a bit high, he didn't give me pricing on parts. My other quote i received had about $650-$700 in parts, which puts both quotes around ... more »

I have not. I have given up trying to find some one to rebuild the motor at the moment. Communication out of engine builders is absolutely terrible, not a clue how any of them stay in business with such poor customer service. As of now, i think i'm going ... more »

Dropped off the frame & upper triple clamp at powder coating during my lunch break today. The coater estimated it would be ready for pick up in the next 2 weeks. I think I decided against the white tank after all I went through to get it

Tank is on it's way.

Should be here between 3-10 days. Ended up being a way smoother transaction than I suspected. Bike is down to a frame, motor, radiators and triple clamps. Hoping we have time to get it the rest of the way torn ... more »
