Kevin, UNREAL fabrication! I work in the metals industry and have been through many fab shops, machine shops, etc. and your work is absolutely AMAZING. I've gone through the pics a number of times and A) the fact that you had the ***** to do it yourself, and B) your work are just nuts! I wish I had your talent man, very impressive!

-Ron

The only thing I'd change is the cluch. To a qwatermiste 3 plate bolted to a flex plate it gets rid of a heap of weight and makes it rev just as fast as a rotor so cool.
