    Well it runs! In my final hours of desperation I took the bike over too Brairdco in Orange County. He got the clutch sorted out in about a few minutes. He road it then found some things to tighten up and adjust. Then I road it, found a few more things to tighten up and adjust. I got it home did some tinkering and road it a couple of miles. I have a few things to clean up and sort out all in all it is a little rough, probably never sneak up on anyone. Clutch is still hard, breaks are weak, ergonomics are poor but over all all that can be worked out. After I get it presentable I will post a picture.

    Did you mean, 'Bairdco' ? You actually let that guy touch your bike? :)
    Congratulations, Jim. Now go ride and think about a cruiser for your next build. They are lots more comfortable especially if you use a lay-back seat post and drop the bars just a little. Have fun, ride safe and get those pictures posted.
