    Looks killer. This is when the anticipation of hearing it run starts to drive you nuts.

    B-rad, that is one sick flatty! Lots 'o bling! Cool how that intake keeps your generator mounted in the center, so's you can see them purty heads!

    Can't wait to hear that thing run. Congrats!

    Your 50 looks like mine along with the motor. Except im running a 200r with OD backing up my little gem. Ive gotta swan neck shifter on the floor. I remember when i put my motor back in and the excitment i felt too. Im happy for you. Your gonna have so much fun. Are you gonna run strait pipe too. Ive got strait pipe and it sounds killer. Good job-stephanie

    Thanks.
    This will be flatty number three for the 50.. First time was a stocker with Smithy's. Was a little too mild for my taste. Round two was a mild cam a couple carbs and straight pipes. Sounded killer! This time 400jr cam, 4" stroke, big bore, and Fenton headers. Should be like last times nine!!
