Burned all the midnight oil

I think I may have been the only one who thought I would make it to Ohio.

It bombed. It didnt make it out of the city. Back to work.

I rode it tonight. Here is how it is rolls right now. Richer than Google and the OG LTD tank. The old GT3r tank was starving the carburetors of fuel. The petcock on that tank was built for a single cylinder and could not fill the float bowls fast enough. I also found that after sitting for two years outside, the timing advance mechanism was stuck and it wouldnt allow the bike to fully rev up.

and then… back to work.

    that bike is looking badass. you are gonna have to find a way to rig up a new petcock on that GT3r tank though. that thing is just too cool to not utilize in this bike.
