No problem Marty - I'll post some tomorrow. It's a beautiful bike that I really don't get enough chance to ride. It snows a LOT here!

Got my spinner today - it's BIG! Gonna paint it yellow to match the scheme.

OK, OK, I'll post maiden video - although I usually try to do that when I'm alone. But if I auger in, you guys will have to come talk me off the ledge!

More adjusting this evening - trying to figure out the best way to support the cans and think I've got it figured out. We'll see.

Couldn't resist getting a taste for things to come so I attached the cowl just to make sure the fit was right. What an amazing paint job! When you take the top half of the cowl off, you an really see just how much room there is in this thing - it's hard to believe that's a 420 in there - it looks so little!

Anyway, the cowl fits perfectly. Gonna start cmaking the fuel and smoke connections and plumbing the tanks.

And a pic of the bike for Marty!

I checked out the specs for this plane and setup and they are saying 100+ pounds. Thats insane. This is going to be crazy. I would like to come see this plane in person. Id love to hear it run. I could be there in 5 hours (Hint Hint).

Hey Marty -

Jim Learn did the paint on the bike. The bike was built by Big Sky Customs here in Bozeman MT. 131 CI Merch engine, Primo open primary, air ride suspension (still a butt buster) no speedo, no mirrors, no looking back. And trust me, it's NOT a small bike - just a really big plane!
