Thanks guys! I appreciate the ++ comments
often it's very hard to see the finished product under all the roughness of a build midway through. I have at least some good news, if no real progress. Bob has been out of town and I need his welding skills for the next few bits. He just got back yesterday and had contact with our long lost machinist! Turns out his assistant is gonna take on my flywheel and other bits. Its only been 8-9 months so I'm not holding my breath. Back at it next week. For now I'm getting close on my electric build and should be riding that this weekend. Check out my "Reverend Iggy" thread in e bike sub-forum for pic's!
