    Actually looking forward to this build. Really excited about riding a big dog again. Love my bear but looking forward to the ridgeback.

    So I decided that I will powdercoat the triple trees black to see if I like them. If I don’t I will send them out for chroming. Powdercoat is much cheaper that chroming.

    Did ya ever see or look into PVD coating? I almost had some wheels done with that, they say its really durable and you can get it in a lot of different choices

    Funny I was just checking that out, I wonder if that is the same thing as black chrome? There is another term called cerocoate probably murdered the spelling.

    Just ordered the raptor pegs from dlxoprodox. Love their grips and pegs.
    Sending the motor out tomorrow to get assembled. It’s coming together

    Update on the build.
    Motor is getting assembled and should be all together right after the holidays.
    Docs esc is going in the build really wanted to keep the wire plus system but couldn’t stand the rats nest.
    Raptor pegs on order and should be arriving soon.
    That’s about all I can do for now but it’s moving.
    Looking at paint around March-may timeframe
    Will post pics on the build
