I got the shocks from MikeDialect here on the SOHC forum.  Just got around to putting them on.  You like the shaved rear fender?  I went up a size on the tire, too.

Paint is done.  Thinking about getting some checkerboard strips or cafe graphics put on.  Tell me what you think.

I'm diggin' it.  The idea of white checker stripes makes me get tingley in places I don't want to mention here.

Is that jail hose orange?!  :o :D :D :D  That's too funny for words.

Well, after new tires, pods, paint and other miscellaneous stuff, my gf has abandoned this project and look at Viragos.

Go figure.

She has offered to give me what she has in the works.  The only problem is that I have school every evening.  With only 6 classes left, I cannot start a project like this.

...and I hate to let it just sit....

Carla is in Texas now.  She's bringing home a Honda Rebel.  She seems to have completely abandoned Jasper.  This makes me sad because I hate to see a bike just sit and rot.

I won't graduate school until Dec 2010.  I really don't have time....  I am holding on to everything for now, and may make some kind of decision about what to do about Jasper.

Carla says that Jasper's mine if I pick up the project.

You don't want to deal with some crummy old bike.  You have school, work, and a relationship to keep you busy.  I'll come down there and taker her off your hands.  ;D
