Reassembly has begun , now where did all those bolts go?










Maxxis Razors are on. They took as little as .75 oz to as much as 2.5oz of weight to balance.

More assembly just to find that the flares are slightly different in color. Ugghh. One step forward and a couple back . I'm still happy with how it looks just ready to finish this up and put it on the road.

Its going to look great! Looks like the flares are maybe slightly lighter in color? Hard to tell from the angle of the photo.
