    Ahh Binga is amongst the living.:D

    Try not to pour too much petrol down it's throat Binga, we wouldn't want it to go tits up, LIKE SOMEBODY we know.;)

    Roarin around with both barrels wide open, just to end up flat on it's face....................HAHAHAHA

    Shouldn't you change your signature line to "I swear it was food poisoning!"?
  12. Good point Brandy...."I still swear it was food poisoning" it had nothing to do with the 6 Caronas and 1 yard of Margarita with extra shots of tequila;) ;) besides I was tested for alchol poisoning and came up negative and it only cost me $1850 US to find this out.... and I still looked better than Dave did the next day :eek:

    Besides what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas........HAHAHA

    Great stuff Mark, now if you can keep the Hot Rod Gnome away you might be able to make progress on those outstandings items instead of putting out fires!

    Sounds great and I bet you're happy now. Keep at it. Looking forward to seeing it out and about.
  17. Thanks Swifty.

    I need that Hot Rod Gnome as he is the only guy around here that knows anything about these darn flattys.

    I had to post this video just to prove to everyone that I am indeed getting closer to the end of this build and not just saying so.
    I dont know what people expect just because it's been almost 17years inthe making.....hahahahaha.........

  18. DAMN...very very nuice, cant wait to see it on the road mate !! Keep the pix comin for us now ya hear?

    How about some photos when you build your fenders (guards)?? I need to do the same thing.
  22. Can't promise anything but I will try my best.
    Lowsquire did a post on building cycle guards maybe you could dig that one up for the time being.

    Hey mark,

    I must have missed this first time around.

    congrats on getting it started. so does that mean a debut on the weekend???
  24. Thanks Corey...No debut for the weekend I would just be happy to be able to drive it up and down the drive way but everything I touch on it seems to need repairing or replacing lately:mad: and being on night shift this week I don't feel like doing much after I get out of bed.
