Watts up? Looks like you are from the home of Kicker electronics! Been using their speakers for many years, beating the living **** out of a pair of Kicker 12's... they just won't die!

Welcome to the forum! 1st thing I would do is dump that crap oil and get some M1!

im not a big fan of plastics in general, and these OEM fairings are oooogly, IMO, especially the fat flat tail. its gonna be alot of custom work, alot ive never tried before, so its gonns be a learning experience sure! I never like havinv a "stock" vehicle with anything I ride or drive but ive never really done anything too crazy with a bike, and this was an opportunity I couldnt pass up

Had? Car audio was a huge hobby/addiction for many years. My current system has my holy grail, the Soundstream MC500on bass, MC300 on front stage and a D100II on rear. All speakers are Kicker. I have it so bad, I have a brand new in the box D200II "in the closet". Not a fan of their stuff after the D-MC line. Started gettin cheap.

Michael, I'd love to see some pics of the factory. If ya have any, post 'em up.

Nice find! I don't recognize the tread pattern of the tires. Avon? If they're older than 5 years I'd ditch 'em or ride really easy until they are replaced.

Haha dont tell her that, shell get all big headed ... Story: I had a little 50cc zuma. I let her take it around the parking lot, thinking it couldnt be bad after the way too long instructions I gave her. She makes it arounf and bavk, pulls up just cheesin... She slows Dow. Approaching, and says "like a pro!" The scooter comes to a halt and she freezes, still in the seated position on it, and falls over, into my impala. Thats why she wont get a front seat on the Shawk lol

Heh done that before luckily it was only on a bicycle, learn pretty fast to get the feet off the pegs when stopped.

Got to love old barn finds lets you tear it apart and put it back together again learning a lot in the process. Good luck with the build looking forward to updates and this site has so much good info on it.

So the $150, yes one hundred fifty dollars, I spent on this bike was well worth it. She runs!! Took some time to clean everything out. Ended up using apple cider vinegar in the tank. Seafoam in the gas and just lettin it idle through a full tank now. #fckinexcited
