Some bike updates

I havnt been posting much because the past week I've been very busy in the garage. Flipping bikes, selling parts, repairing bikes and choppin bikes. So glad winter is finally on its way out of here!

The Slum Goddess is finally finished. I got the front end working. It seemed as if it was binding and just wasn't moving. I always thought I had 4" tubes, it had 4" spacers. Turns out I really have 6" over tubes and the previous owner did not have the correct spacers. I dropped some 6" spacers and now it works like it should. Also got the front brakes working and the front motor mount installed. The mid controls were put on a month or so ago and work awesome. This thing runs and rides like a dream.

Also got a ton of work done on the 550 suzuki. Finished up the frame, got the horse-shoe battery box mounted. New tires on the rare GR650 wheels, and a new set of carbs put on.

This thing has a great stance! Next up is clutch work, mount the rear fender and tall ass sissybar.

Just as a recap of what it was when it was first brought home.

ALSO got it running for the first time in over 10 years. Only a crappy cell video, but shes a growler!!!
