I must apologize for my lack of blogs pertaining to the Cannonball Race. I completely stripped the Scout down after I got it and sent the motor and frame over to John Bivens for some much needed work. The frame was in pretty nice shape but I wanted it checked on his frame table. The engine had a rebuilt bottom end but on closer inspection I wasn't sure so he is going through the engine for me. If I am going to do this ride I am not going to spend $20K plus and end up stranded with a broken down drive train.
I am building the wheels but there is not a lot of excitement there. I will keep you posted on my slow and tedious progress. This deal is much bigger than a person would imagine. It would have been nice to start with a finished bike.
