Been stalled on the FM build. Between my chemo, my Mothers issues and trying to finish the 1st AVG build which is "done" but keeps throwing chains all over the place; I haven't been spending much time at Bob's shop to work on it. Maybe this week. There are things I need done by the machinest but he doesn't seem very motivated. This week if he hasn't completed what I ordered I'm pulling my parts out of his shop and going elsewhere. its been 2 months...

Allrighty then. I'm back at it on this build as well as the ebike project. I had the Worksman rims broken down so I could have em powdercoated a while back and the front relaced with a S/A 90mm drum. Thats it for now but at least its moving again. Baby got new orange shoes for Festivus! Im thinking Ill have time this week to mess with it a bit more.

OH! And my new favorite vendor on the web is !! BUNG KING !! HAHAHA Seriously: Dude makes fantastic stuff and will save me hours of fabrication and hundreds of steel splinters in my skin. Tabs for making the fold around stand. Made from a repro Cycle-Truck stand and then messed with. Check out all the funky tabs tanks caps and BUNGS HERE : http://www.bungking.com/tabs/

Hope your health continues to improve. Merkle contours & now adding factory color assures me this will be a build you can be proud to display & ride as your beautiful Pope . I'll eagerly await future progress on your version of the Flying Merkle!
