I'm picturing K1 rolling up in the buggy with long hair, little round framed glasses with purple lenses, and smoke pouring out from around him. Grooooooovy Laughing

I'm digging the color. Have you gotten as far as figuring out what kind of shoes the "Shaggin Dragon" will be sporting?

I recommend these. The description alone makes me want to breathe fire.

Your Car will roar with the awesome power of the dragon god himself on these alloy wheels named after the all-powerful Japanese god of the sea, Ryujin. You don’t have to drive on water to appreciate the beauty of these alloy wheels. The polished lip glistens even at night as it stands out against the black painted aluminum. Feel the power of the Black Dragons from Asian Dragons.

Shocked WOW! After reading that description, i'm scared to look directly at them. Still trying to figure out how they think it makes sense to relate a car rim to a sea god Rolling Eyes

Shaggin Dragon would be big pimpin with some shoes like that!

I'm so jealous of your straight transmission forks. Smile

I can't even imagine how you are building that frame and keeping it straight. Needless to say, I am impressed.

What kind of welder do you have and is welding something you do for a living or have you just practiced a lot?

I got one of the cheap 90amp models from HF. I hear if one changes out the line and tips that it is better. We shall see. Your welds look good.

Do you use one of those autodarkening helmets? I haven't welded since high school and I remember that setting up the weld position, then sliding down that helmet was a pia.
