Feels good to get something finished doesn't it, I put down a sub floor of 7/16" osb over the top of the 5/8" tongue and groove osb flooring that I had originally put down, getting the final 800 square feet of flooring down was nice, I also got one 8ft shelf built that e tends out about 24"" from the wall, I still have a lot to do to get everything the way I want it, isulation, wall board, work bench, wiring in the electric, building a front porch 8'x 20', getting the entire building painted, and then I plan to build a 14' x 20' metal working shop off to the side of the current building, it will not have a wood floor like the big building, I need a place to put my welders, torxh and the Smithy Lathe & Mill combo, when I get this all done Ill have an excellent work area for do all my planned bike work, its a shame I have so manic tools and not have a good comfortable place to use them, I have so many plans in my head for bike work I want to do, I have several engines sitting around, some of them new in the box never even opened, plan to do some four stroke builda, maybe a couple of friction drivr builds I've had in my head for a while.....blah blah!

Just need a good place to work and slowly but surely Im getting one, kinda tired of working on this huge one man project but it will be worth it when its done.

Today, I plan to but an engine back on the Kulana Moon Dawg bike, after breaking a rearstud off I redrilled both of them for 1/4 x 20 and just need to. Ut a couple of correct length studs from the all thread I picked up at Tractor Supply, I have a 6.0 Fred Head I think Im gonna put on the engine and also Im gonna re jet an NT Speed carb and put on it instead of the RT I had on it, the RT carb did good but I lost several mph off my top speed with the RT carb when I switched from the little NT carb, all around its really hard to beat the old NT carbs.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
