Well this is my first entry. I started this project back in the summer of 2002 with a rear wheel to an FXR. Money was tight and I wanted to build a bike. I never thought this would take me as long as it has. The nice thing is GF has made sure I stick to a budget on this. I have tried to use decent used parts where possible. It hasn't always been easy. While in Iraq in 2005 I kept buying parts and have them shipped to buddy of mine at work. Everyone thought I would have it together shortly there after. Well it is November of 2009, and I am still at it. School, work, a couple of moves, a different job and some other stuff have slowed down progress.

Lessons I have learned, buy the damn component whole if possible, I have tried buying a camshaft here, cases there, heads, valves you name it one lousy piece at a time. I wish I had just saved up and bought the motor, in the end it might be cheaper. Same for the 5 speed.

Next lesson: decide what you want to build make a drawing or picture to use as you reference point.

Buy decent parts, I have gotten a few things through ebay, that the price was great, but when I opened the box, it was well not what I thought it would be.

Be smart enough to know some things you can't build because of:
Tools,
Time
Experience
talent
