    Hey yeah Matt, the flat track bike looks great. If you go to www.nortonmotorcycles.com and look into the news section you'll also see a Mick Grant special edition. They made up a total of seven of them so I think my chances of seeing one are pretty slim. They don't post news very often but I check it every week anyway.

    Swoosh,

    You would think.....however, I found out years ago that I really cant build anything for myself. It would take way to long to finish. Then when done, someone would want to buy it and I would have to start from scratch again. Besides, I am well behind on customer builds and it certainly would not be right for me to take time away from those machines to work on my own.

    So I figured, if I get something that is already done, then I can avoid all kinds of complications.........at least that's what I worked through in my head

    Too successful to enjoy the hobby. Tough predicament. I guess that's the trade off.

    More Gear Jams being made - Notice the new engraving vs chem etch. This image shows Ground Plates, Wire Start Holes, Engraving and tapped holes. Next, Wire EDM Cutting, then tumbling, then assembly. #quality. I've always liked when companies show behind the scenes pics of items being manufactured so here's my behind the scene pic to share. CNW is doing well selling these super handy tools so I'm posting it on the CNW thread. Thanks Matt.

    If you plan on keeping the bike, this has got to be one of the most handy multi-purpose tools made specific to the 961 engine.
