Another pic from yesterday. Cleaned it up and had the front end aligned. I changed the spindles a while back and just got it to the shop. Much better!

Nice Scott!

You should sell me the 1776 and get something bigger for this - something to give those sissy sticks a real challenge! Smile Smile Smile
Meh.
