Good luck with it SJ
yeah, it sure is going to be tight and not entirely sure how close I'll stick to it.

Keeping an excel sheet of everything and right now at $2159.25 including:
- bike & spare frame
- wheels/tires/rotors
- thruxton forks
- custom frame loop (part only)
- tapered bearings
- handlebars
- folding shift lever
- replacement clutch side control

I'm not counting things that I already had in my spares pile that I've used or am planning to use, such as the kickstand, headlight, mini speedo, various grips, and seat pan. Also planning on selling parts to recoup some costs.

The "village idiot" always consults his cats on these things: Jim
"Shop Dog" Whisky loves hanging out back while I work. She's on board. Also on board, is my girlfriend who "helped" by snapping this pic of me rolling the bike through my narrow apt hallway under the cover of darkness.
