the engine was not original and hasn't been for a long time before i bought it (supposedly originally built by Pete Hill and recently rebuilt by Jamie Barber of the 74 Shop), so i don't feel bad building a chopper around it. right now it's just a bunch of spare parts bolted together to get it shipped over to me, where i can begin working on it in earnest. the tank and rear fender will stay, but the front end and forwards will be replaced with ones built by me.
well, here you go. i'd appreciate any comments, be they positive or negative.
