Just so everybody knows I'm still gonna make a fight to the finish ! But it may have a regular clutch and no powder coating.

EDIT. Do you get to keep the messed up exhaust? If so, I want it......

Since I got my new exhaust. I have no use for the old one if you still want it. You can have it. I could throw it in a padded envelope and send it your way.

And after conversing with my dad. He bought he torque converter so it will be here in a few days. Only thing I need to have all the parts to finish it, is the seat, brakes, and flywheel ! So yippee for me cause it will be done next month.

That is looking sweet. Did you figure out what you are going to do with the motor mount to raise it a bit?

Yeah the steel place didn't have any 2x5 so we are using 2x2 square. So we are gonna weld it on a rectangular shape to match the engine base and let it slide with the engine.

You still have a couple months yet. You'll make it.....
I had that problem once. I bought a CBR900RR, and rode as much as I could. Put 10,000 miles on that beast in less than 8 months. My wife and I only had one child at the time, and didn't mind me being gone all the time. The next "riding season" came round and she quickly let me know that the "free nights and weekends " plan had expired. I was limited to couple nights a week and every other Saturday (the ones I had to work).....
I sold that bike a few years ago. Now, she asks if I'll ever get another one....... ? I don't know if it's cause she misses riding with me, or just wants me out of the house a little more. she says sometimes I'm worse than the kids......
Little does she know, that's how I get out of the house with no guilt trip. Get on her nerves, and she will be glad you're leaving for a little while.......
