When I think of a Buell Ulysses

This is pretty much what im expecting.

Check out those reservoirs up front.  
Quite a bit of unsprung weight, guess it doesn't matter if your just planning on hitting one really big bump.

Half day left of class

I'm on par with everyone else in the class : behind.

Finished in the white is what I need to have done tomorrow.
Do able, but I'm going to take the points over shaping a neck I don't like.

Weekends work

A successful trip into Wisconsin this weekend.
Head was removed from the Triumph to get that intake valve back on the straight and narrow.

Got a new AGM battery in the KLR, gave it a good rhomp around.

Nothing was done on the Hummer frame, only dreaming.

But some oggling was done over the stainless tubing that will be used for Bonneville Hummer frame

The decision has been made to use an old Bates scramble re-pop seat for the 441.
The Hummer motor has begun to be broken down.  A bit of rust inside.

Even re-birthed a friends guitar and got my p-bass all shielded up.
Not to mention a couple train rides, and a good amount of rest.

Yup, im back.

I have only one more week of class till I switch over to only doing my acoustic build 4 days a week.

Didnt do anything crazy for inlay on my electric, just 5mm pearl dots.
My acoustic I am required to do something.

Ideas have been floating around.
Expansion chamber with each cone in a different medium
For some reason the 2 stroke theme has been in my head

If I can make use of the CNC I wouldnt mind doing a bit of pinstripe inlay.
I was thinking about this for my 12th fret on my bass, not enough time.
