Thanks for the kind feedback. Washes away some of the doubt while building it.

Really just something to keep me busy until, hopefully, I get my dirty mitts on the Funk. Broke it in this weekend with the crew of irregulars. We all figured the first ride cost a few hundred bucks breaking in all the NOS.

3 inch buffing wheel on a Makita cordless drill, Risse Genesis air shock, Chinook rims, and a little sniping did the trick.

I really dig oogling everybody's builds here on RB. No matter the make, year, group, bling or not, each build is a labor of love and that makes them all classics in my book. Great to be part of such an ecclectic group of devotees. Thanks for letting me be a part of the scene.

No botm, it's not a contest damn it!! :evil:

Take it easy cool cats... more crap to come! :wink:
