    Hey Rocketboy


    You have got to keep us updated on the bike parts situation so we can get that bad cat back together. That was a sweet spread you put out this morning I just wish we could have got more done.

    Hey Rocketboy

    Actually, it wasn't all bad. He's just missing a lot of little shit. We didn't really get anything back on permanantly, in fact we were stopped in our tracks when someone noticed the subframe was cracked...

    But we did get to 'dry fit' everything and get a damn good idea of how to get it all back together...

    Huge thanks to Rich and his family for putting up with us, and laying out a schmeg breffis spread...

    Let us know when you're ready to finish that shit up, Rich. We're probably just as eager as you now to get that thing together...

    Hey Rocketboy

    Is the crack in the sub frame the same one I had welded??? I hope not,, If you get stuck and can't find anyone to fix it and it is the same one I had taken care of Ship it to me and I will take care of it no charge.. It is light and would be cheap to fix.. Let me know how you make out with it

    Hey Rocketboy

    the subframe that was welded is the one that's cracked. Not in the same spot...it's cracked where it mounts to the bike.

    Hey Rocketboy

    No Bob, it's a different crack. (Hee hee...I said 'crack'). There's a few shops around where Rich is gonna be moving to that can weld aluminum. So once he gets that squared away, buys some mounting screws (available as a 'kit'?) and a repair manual, that bitch'll be up & running!!!

    BTW, Bob-outstanding work!!!

    Hey Rocketboy

    Jay, JC, Ed, Randy, Degs & Mick... thanks for coming over. I know some of you travelled quite a ways and I really appreciate the effort. If I had looked at that subframe a little closer I may have noticed the BIG fookin crack. Anyway, subframe is off this morning being repaired. I will try to locate a service/repair manual and bolt kit. I'm moving this coming weekend but anytime after that you guys are available let me know.

    Mick... as a side note, my mother wanted to know who the guy was that was riding the "purple" bike and had the cute accent. Can I start calling you daddy-o now?

    Hey Rocketboy

    Hey Degs... thanks for posting that Q on the 929 Forum.

    I located a full service manual... $65. + $1.95 s&h. I'm gonna get order it today, it'll be delivered in 3/4 days.

    I'm having some trouble locating a "bolt kit" for this tho. I can get whatever bolts I need but no one seems to put together a complete set of 'em. I've got a glue gun though, that'll keep her together!

    Thanks again, you guys rock! Next time you guys come up I'll see if I can get my hand on some good "caske" beer. I know you european guys dig that piss warm beer.

    I can't believe you didn't see my crack... lol... Hey, no prob Bob. I never saw it either. Thankfully one of the guys caught it, could've made for an interesting situation if it was put back together and snapped mid-wheelie!

    Hey Rocketboy

    Degsy... yur the fuckin balls man. You just saved me $65! That's enough for a couple cases of Guiness eh?

    The subframe is being welded today... still trying to figure out what to do about the missing bolts... wish I knew exactly what I'm missing.

    Anyway... with the printout's and frame back I should be good to go shortly.

    Hey Rocketboy

    Rich, I don't think you are missing much. I have a big bag of Honda hardware I can bring up with me next time just in case you need any nuts 'n' bolts.
