    Nice work Bro! A couple questions. Are you leaving the bow tank in or going side tanks? What's up with the wood grained engine cover in about the third pic? That's kind of cool looking, is it a decal?

    Nice project and awesome job! You have some mad polishing skills. It looks like the gell shined up real nice.
    If You get a chance, check out the restore I did on My Kona. Once again awesome job.....Hal

    I'm not here for a long time, I'm just here for a good time!
    If your not on the edge.......your taking up too much room......Drive it like you stole it!
