Started Josh's bike, and took it for a spin. runs great, handles great idles great. Some air cleaners and it will be ready to go. If The Hub has the aircleaners, I will pick them tomorrow after work, install them, clean it up and it will be ready to go, finally.
Most of my friends know that I have a real fondness of sidecar rigs. Now before judgeing you should really ride a properly set up rig, it is a fun alternative to two wheels. I have had this bike longer then any bike I own. It is an ongoing project, hopefully I will have time to make it all One color this winter. Thats my trusty shop wagon in the background. Its a 1993 BMW E34 Touring. Best car I have ever owned.
I have been beating my head against the wall trying to get Josh's cb550 to run with the 2 carb manifold set we built. I have tried every trick I know to get it to be rider friendly. I can get it to run for me, but I know all of the little nuances, and it is not easy for a fairly knew rider to be able to predict how its going act next. I have finally given up and am bbuilding a set of stock carbs for it, which is a major pain in the rear. But in the end it will give Josh a much more enjoyable ride.

This is Punk Rod Russ's xs650 AHRMA racer. It is in the shop to pull the motor apart, and figure out where the knock is coming from. I can't wait to get inside and see what was done to make race worthy. I will keep progress posted.
Went by Brians house Sarurday, this is his new ride. A super clean 1984 Nissan pickup. He has a few modifications in mind for the little jewel. Can't wait to see them, Anybody that knows Brian Will tell you that when he gets a new project he is able to pull off something cool every time. The cool thing is it is always very original, built exactly how he wants it.Thanks to Brian and Jennifer for the hospitality, and the tank and tail light.
