well guys just a little update...

tonight we cut the frame into 2 pieces. we cut it really oddly compaired to what we have seen done just to make it unique.. we cut it so that we can still use all of the factory plastics and gas tank and everything. most ppl just modify the top of the frame so that it hangs out to clear the carbs...
anyways yes we cut the frame and some extra mounting tabs off since we will have to custom make them. we also mocked it up with some electrical condoite ( sp ) so we can get a little idea on how it will turn out. i also picked up some rear SUPER studded tires for this winter...
we are at a stand still now since i dont have my air filters yet so until then we will be working on removing and smoothing the frame down....
also we found the frame was cracked before and someone HACKED the fixing of it.. it was actually VERY VERY twisted. so the frame will need to be straightened and gussested before we ride...
ill get pics tommorrow and post them...

Thats a tack off of a racing Kart, it also has temp, its called a Micron 3. Check Ebay, there about $200. Its pretty cool, its a bar style tack, even has indigo for night time.
