Thanks Tom, Yes I agree it needs to be fun! I am redesigning the backbone to a dual backbone so I can hang fuel cell in between rails and also allows it to be a bit lower in the front,trying to get out of wind in a horizontal position. Look forward to parts coming in so I can complete the roller.

Balls to the wall?

Looks like balls to the frame.

That's pretty funny however it is a bit true. Redesigned the top backbone yesterday. Going with a dual backbone with 1 inch .120 wall and hanging a 2 gallon fuel Cell in between. Building fuel cell out of 22 gauge steel . Now just waiting for some parts to show up. Need to get tires mounted so i can get proper ride height and see where exhaust will hang. So hang on more pix next week . Thanks

A few more things done this weekend. Dual backbone is in and gusseted well. Got my new radiator it looks like it was meant for the build.New tires arrived as well as my front spokes. Now Its time to get front hub to powdercoater. My buddy Kit is going to mount the rear tire this feel .It will be nice to get exact height of rear end now.
