Welcome Dave. You've come to the right place to share/gain knowledge about this weird little hobby of ours. With your experience you've probably already seen what needs to be done to build a reliable bike, but there's always new things to learn.
I remember Tifton well. I was stationed at Moody Field, Valdosta in the mid 60s. Beautiful country and really great folks around there.
Have fun, ride safe and share a few photos with us of your builds.
