This has got to be one of my favorite bike projects (up there with yours Hawkwind!).

I love the mean simplicity and attitude of both of the bikes.

Also the fact they are similar but not the same.

Excellent stuff, congratulations on a job nearly complete.

Hey all,

Enjoy Sheri Buchta

Willie and Sheri----It was so great to meet you guys and put a face with a name, at the GG banquet this past weekend!!!!!!

What an awsome experience!!!!!!  To see a lot of the cars from the early days I read about in hot rod magazine as a kid growing up on a farm-ranch in Texas.  Then to top it off---to the hear stories of the variousGGs  from the forties and early fifties. Just to be in the same room with the NAMES---some original---some kids--and some grands and greatgrands.

Hey Sparky,
Ditto...We feel humbled sometimes when we go to the functions because of some of the people who are there. Life is funny that way. Willie and I were looking at some of the stuff in the museum. We used to live about three miles from Fremont drag strip in Fremont, Ca. We seen most of those drag racing cars race at Fremont drag strip.
Hope to see you in the dirt in May.

progress...
The third day didn't get much done. Had to take my little Madison to the dentist but things seem to be falling together just right. Eric will be here on Saturday and bringing parts for his bike so I have to get as much done as possible before than. Willie is also building a frame for an '04 roadking but he said he won't send some pics because its the ugliest thing he's ever built.

Hello All
Got some more work done on the bike today. Cleaned the gasket surfaces, checked the end gap on the rings, honed the cylinder, assembled the piston and cylinder. We just got the head left which Willie has to drill for a second spark plug. Hopefully that will be done tommorrow. Here are a few pics.
Willie made me wash the parts in hot soapy water. Just can't stay out of the kitchen.
