Exclamation Looking For Help

I thank everybody on this forum for all the help with all the problems I have had with this build. I have had to overcome: throttle problem, sprocket problem, chain & tire clearance problem, motor mount problem, exhaust pipe clearance problem, gas leak problem, center stand, and last but most problematic THE CLUTCH. The bike is it up and should run, it has spark but the clutch still seems to drag way too much. There is no way I could pump this bike to start the motor. Even if I got it moving with the peddles if I released the clutch, well I can't peddle it. Do you folks know of any body in the Long Beach Calif. area willing to help me out with this initial start up and button down process. Any shops, any sellers, any mechanics, any owner/builders. I am not looking for a freebie here, I will take one if offered. My level of frustration has been reached.

Jim C.
