Yeah Yeah just jack the frame up and those Evo's just fall in aye? (NOT) Laughing

After picking out the left over stub from the neck casting there was no fucken way I was going to pick this one out, So I just machined up a spigot to hold the seat post in there.

easy as now to put a little dog leg in the seat post so as to clear the rear head and exhaust port. Twisted Evil

Too easy, Hey it even follows the profile of the head and rocker box. Twisted Evil

OK lets see if we can do that again with the back bone. (new stickers Doug cyclops)

You can see what I mean now there is no way it was going to fit,I think all those people who said cut and jack the frame up were full of shit.And that is what I would expect from you woody TOP NOTCH WORK as always and brett I keep telling you I don't drink tea or coffee but hey a stubby or can holder would be better.

yep it's amazing how many myths there are out there that get propagated, & because it gets said & passed around then people just start believing it, & then when you go to do the job you find out that the info was a load of crap
