    Looking good @STPNWLF ! I had the opportunity to ride a 2017 vmax and that thing was a rocket.

    Needed to polish out some scratches on the fork tubes so while I had the bench grinder setup I also polished up the speedo cowl bracket.

    Also installed the new bushings,seals, and progressive springs today. Just need to set the oil level and reinstall them.

    everyone talks about the pure sports car...i've been thinking...a bike has no cup holders, radio, airbags, seat belt or a metal cage to protect you either...it's the purest form of motorsports :)

    Here and there...
    Got the C70 fired up for the first time tonight!
    I was hoping for even a small sputter. As soon as I supplied gas( funnel feed because I’m working on the tank), 1 kick from the kick starter and it was up and roaring!
    Key word ROARING. I did not expect it to keep running for more then a few seconds. It took of roaring at full speed.. Throttle and choke cables didn’t effect it.. So I had to start pulling wires to get it to shut off...
    Now to wait about a week until the new carb gets here.. And def installing a new safety cut off switch :(
