I've had a thing for the 500 single for a couple of years now. After hunting for a few weeks I found a nice 81 w/low miles in Vegas, Made the arrangements, drove out picked it up and a nice overnighter @ the MGM.
I made the mistake of trying to make this a rush build, fix up whatever you want to call it. The short of it 5 weeks later I was riding around Chop Meet in Wright Wood, Ca & I've been having a blast on it ever since. I really wouldn't have finished it in time if it weren't for, Well, Bob, Wes @ Racerton, Pat over at Cutting Edge Machine, & My Friend Brandon up at Mullins Chain Drive.
I don't have any of my own pics of the nearly finished bike so all of those images are lifted from Rouser Robs blog.
