Overview

Well, there has been a lot of turd polishing over the years, and I've amassed quite a collection of photos. It sat for the last 2 years with a broken engine (busted motor number 2) and i just swapped in a decent used one -All fired up and ready to do some wheeling again this winter and spring!

In honor of its most recent resurrection, I guess its time for a mostly retroactive build thread??

Not sure I can put accurate dates on all the modifications, but should be able to keep them in order, documenting the journey from tame and stock, to bigger, badder, and a little bit dented.

Apparently I brought it home about 14 years ago...
