I remember this build. I had to point out the crooked bar you had and reweld it for you. Ok Ok not really everyone but I did watch Mike build it all himself and was very impressed. Besides the fact he is a cool dude and will help most guys at the drop of a hat!

now this is how she sits today. waiting on some replacement bolts that were worn and some new piston rings. hope to have most of it together this weekend.
 
Damn Mike you have been a busy SOB. Hell I just barely got mine back into the garage. You are definately motivated to work on the toys.. :eek:
 
SIK MIKE WIFE MUST REALLY LOVE YOU..................... DAMN THAT BUILD LOOKED LIKE FUN NICE GARAGE TOO.....
 
THATS SWEET MINE CRYS CAUSE IM IN THE GARAGE TO MUCH WOW PROPS HOW DO GET THEM OFF YOUR BACK.......EVEN WHEN I JUST BUY THEM ANYTHING THEY WANT.......
 
just give them the check book and let them run wild. it helped me to have a little girl who loves girly stuff and the wife and her are involved in 3 dance classes, swim class, cooking classes, after school electives, going to plays, scrapbooking.......... busy girls. and thats keeps them busy and off my ass and my racing budget running low at all times.
