got a new/used triple tree off ebay. then i realized my swingarm bearings were shot so got that. i need to use a press to get the old swingarm/ linkage bearing out, and i dont feel like going through all the crap bringing it to school.

next i want to get the frame sandblasted, waiting on my friend to ask his uncles friends cousins brothers dads friend or whoever if he can do it. lol

i ran it a couple days ago just to make sure it was still good

its riding time!!

after the first time riding it i lost first gear. it makes terrible sounds and skips in and out. looked it up and i believe i have a bent shift fork. i have put a few hours on it without using first gear and everything else works totally normal. eventually i am going to tear it back down but i really dont feel like it right now.

Sucks about that first gear, but you got to ride it! however, in the future could you haver camera person turn their phone sideways before hitting record? Its amazing how many people don't realize that they can record a nice widescreen video, rather than this super annoying tall and narrow video poop that is so hard to watch. Lol.
