    I'm positive it's your bike... but just to be 100%, I'll ask him who he bought it from, (& where). ;)

    Also... If you're a engineer & build cars, motorcycles & billet prototypes?, why do you use zip ties to hold the gas tank on?? :confused:

    It is my bike I think I remember him. I offered to help fix everything but he could not get here. Then he wanted a refund and then he started making treats. That's when I stopped replying.

    I skipped the zip-ties and stuck a piece of innertube under the tank for friction and mine hasn't moved. I bet a strip of velcro under there would work pretty well too.

    Venice, Wow! That was a good old fashioned scolding. LOL! Just wanted to let you know other people were reading this and I get what your saying even though he did not.

    After reading that I"m quite sure i would not want to get on your bad side. Hope your not ticked because I thought it was a very entertaining rant. I realize being held liable and responsible is not a laughing or inexpensive matter.

    Hey bajaracer1! Thanks for the build info. This was one of the bikes I was considering (I like the short-stocky look of the frame). I'm thinking if a person were willing to grind/mess with the front motor mount, you might gain enough room for a stock manifold install. The LaJollas are a good looking bike, for sure.
