Good question,OP hasn't logged in since 08/13/15
I figured everyone had forgotten about it by now. Things took a turn for the worse with my health and it wasn't looking so good for me for a little while, to the point that life expectancy was drawing short. I literally fell out of the build lapping number 9 of 16 valves. Long, crazy story but I've made an amazing rebound and am healthier than I was pre op.

The build was on hold and everything was binned and stored at my shop. I dusted off the chassis just a few days ago and the builds back on. My engine builder's got a few cart team build motors to wrap up and were getting mine built. In the coming weeks I'll pick up where I left off.

This is great news. Sounds like you are now healthier than before. Health is more important than any bike. Good luck with your build and keep us posted. :cheers

Glad to hear you're doing better. I've thought about your build from time to time and was hoping for it to start having updates. This wasn't how I would have expected or wanted it to go, but happy you're on the mend and doing better. Keep up the recovery and looking forward to seeing progress updates later.
