Oh yeah, the tank mounts right up perfectly. I actually just went all mad scientist on it in the garage, I created a few custom mounts that will make these shrouds look decent for the time being. I have to cut them a bit, but it'll pick them up and stop making them look ghetto rigged and droopy.

HA not yet, cylinder is still at millennium tech, but I fixed that fender today  ;D I made my mounts adjustable, so I lowered it a lot, no longer looks like a hill climber  8)  I have everything else on it, carb got a good cleaning and re-set, reeds are in, everything else is literally all in and ready, just waiting on my cylinder, so excited. Pics as soon as I get back home.

On a side note, the clutch seems way hard to pull, like it isn't totally disengaging  ??? Maybe it's just different than what I'm used to, I'll see when I get it running

That looks alot like a 250 pipe. Unless it is a 250, I had it set in my mind as a 125. Can't go back to look either, internets so slow  :-X

You've really done a ripper job. If it is a 125, you'll be able to race both the 125 vintage and 250 vintage. That would be sick.

Thanks man! Its a 250, I almost wish it was a 125 because I've never raced one of my own, but I will some day. How fast is millennium tech's turn around time? Its been almost 2 years since I last sent out a cylinder to them, just wondering if it's still about 2 weeks or so?

After fighting this bike some more I finally got all the wiring all set. I had to tap the threads in on the stator side of the crank because I guess they got damaged somehow. Got a new shifter put on, this thing is freaky, it bends in like three directions, weirdest shifter I've ever seen  ???

I'll be going to pick up the cylinder and top end kit tomorrow hopefully so I can at least get it running. I'm tying up some loose ends now, I got the chain on and one of the adjuster bolts is seized while the other snapped. So I'll likely be drilling and re-taping those at some point. I'm aiming to get this thing jetted and set up completely before I move in to my dorm and it takes it's new home in the storage unit near the local track.

Apparently their turn around time is closer to a month. They said I'll be getting it back by next friday, but I was told that a week ago too  :) Apparently its taking longer because the dude who had it before me heat seized it, I dunno why that would take an extra week to fix but as long as the bill is still about $200 I wont be complaining...

Got my cylinder in  :) They must have been short on cylinder head studs as they took mine and didn't give them back. Also, who would have thought that a $150 top end kit wouldn't come with gaskets and a wrist pin bearing? Those are on order and I guess maybe there is a slim chance this bike will run before it snows! Maybe...
