so its "done". technically its been in one piece for a couple weeks but he was breaking in the motor and shaking it down so there was a little suspense. a few things fell off in that time and several were adjusted but now its running strong enough. the other day was about a 100 miles round trip and nothing was played around with so confidence is at an all time high. his friend Molly took these pictures and i hope to work with her in the future to do a real spread featuring this ground-up build. well done to everyone involved.
