Greggo, congrats on BOTM and she's a beauty.

Your dad's partner does some very nice welding work. Could you explain how he went about reparing that pipe? Is that a chrome high temp paint? Or, what was used on the metal around the repair?

Thanks! David


Yes, there was some discoloration from the welding, so he used high temp paint to finish it up.  I'm not exactly sure how he did the repair as I wasn't there to watch.  He is a very talented metal fabricator.

Brutale is done! Adam read the last log files and his reply was "almost perfect". We could fine tune it until the cows came home in the upper 9k to 11k range but I don't ride there. Picture enclosed of one run in the range of in town riding.

It's a completely different animal. Scary fast. Don't need to be on it actually. Going to put it up for sale this summer. On lift, fuel drained, 661 original miles and covered.

Thank you for asking Sir.

 A fine piece of work you did. Complete determination to get it right. Absolutely stunning motorcycle.

No! You haven't even had time to enjoy it yet.  Was the clutch slipping so you replaced the discs?

Old sticky plates!  I've had plenty of time to admire it...that's a lot of the fun for me on this one. I want one I can ride ;)  that's going to be the K4 with the gunfighter seat.
