    think I'm gonna go without the chainguard...I would have to drill and tap a hole in the BB to get it to work. I also think I'm gonna leave 'er naked...no clearcoat..

    I like it naked. The clearcoat could have unpredicatable results.

    Very cool Mark!! Love the pic with the HUGE snow drift. Dude I know how you feel with the cabin fever went out last year when it was 50 and got really sick. Perks of being used to -15 weather 40 feels warm. Your bike looks WAY cool and has nostalgia written all over it. Troy
